If your student has required medication or health services at school this year, all medication and medical supplies must be picked up from the school office on the last day of school! Medications must be picked up by a parent or guardian unless your student is authorized (current contract on file) to self-carry his/her medication.
If your student is attending summer school the medication (to include the doctor’s order) must be picked up the last day of school. Then it needs to be taken to the summer school site on the first day of summer school by the parent/guardian. Please make sure the medication does not expire prior to July 31, 2016.
On the last day of summer school, the student’s medication must be picked up by the parent/guardian at the summer school site.
Mission Valley will be holding it’s first Maze Day this August! The purpose of MAZE Days is for the parents to turn in all their necessary Emergency Paperwork prior to school starting so we can prepare for your child to attend Mission Valley. For confidentiality reasons, class lists will no longer be posted—the only way to get your child’s classroom assignment is to come to Maze Day with all the necessary documents. Maze Day will take place in the MUR on Tuesday, August 30 and the time you will come is based on your child’s last name:
8:30 - 10am: A - F 10-11:30am: G - L
12:45 - 1:45pm: M - R 1:45 - 2:45pm: S - Z
Please note that we will not take any paperwork or give out classroom assignments outside of your scheduled time, so please schedule your vacation and work plans around your scheduled date and time. You will receive all the Maze Day forms via US Mail in mid-August so that you can fill them out prior to coming to Maze Day.
Student placement in a particular class is a complex process with many variables. The following criteria are used in order to accomplish the placement of students and balanced classes: 1))Achievement, 2)Behavior, 3)Second Language Learners, 4)Special Needs. Parental input in this process is also valued. You may mish to describe your child’s specific educational needs by completing a Parent Applications for Student Placement. These forms are now available in the office.
Applications must be returned to the school office by 3pm Friday, May 27th. NO EXCEPTIONS! Please note that you may not request a specific teacher.
