Change on the HorizonSoaring Strong as a Blue Jay Family


     February may be a shorter month, but it definitely had its fair share of news and excitement, making it fly at a feverish pace. Change is definitely on the horizon at Monte Vista and MPUSD. Read on to find out!

     First, we found out that our 5th graders get to stay at Monte Vista next school year as MPUSD will now have elementary schools service grades TK-6 starting the 2021-2022 school year. Secondly, a staff meeting, and a district and school site townhall was conducted by our Superintendent sharing a presentation and gathering feedback about the possibility of having Monte Vista expand to a grades TK-8 school site over the next three school years. Look out for a district survey and other future opportunities that inquire of your feedback on this possible development in order to determine a final decision. Finally, we will for sure have a hybrid model for our return from Spring Break, with students having the option to soar across our campus again on April 8th! More details and a related survey regarding the related model and schedule will be coming your way via Parent Square the week of March 8th!  Even though parent conferences have been postponed, our staff will still be here to support you in all your questions and needs as we approach this upcoming, exciting horizon!

With Great Gratitude and Love, Dr. Joe Ashby
