Important Information for Remainder of School Year

Dear Mountain Oaks Community, Please see the letter regarding COVID-19 and School Operations, that came from the State Superintendent of Schools Office late yesterday, March 31, 2020. (Click article title for letter from Tony Thurmond.) In light of this communication from the CDE, it seems campus closures may extend through the end of the School Year. Despite this closure of campuses, the Expectations for Continued Learning remain in place during the COVID-19 campus closures. Your Mentor Teacher will continue to work with you on your original Personalized Learning Plan (on modified Curriculum if necessary). We are continuing to work on solutions for all students but we are especially sensitive to the needs of our 8th graders and 12th graders who anticipate promoting and/or graduating this year. Please note if a student was on pace and in good standing for promotion/graduation, we fully anticipate those students completing this year. We are also looking at options and timelines for postponing, rescheduling and/or modifying our Commencement Celebrations. Please continue to work with your Mentor Teacher and check in on all Mountain Oaks School communications channels frequently. A packet of information will be in the traditional mail as well in the coming days. We will make an announcement when those are sent. Thank you for continuing to work with your students and the Mountain Oaks Staff during this time of uncertainty. Stay safe and healthy. Posted 4/1/20
