We have made some changes to our newsletter this year - we will now be sending home 1 page newsletters in Friday folders toward the beginning of every month. Complete newsletters will be posted here.
You can access past newsletters on this site under "Calendars & News". In our News section, you will also find a version of the newsletter in Chinese. Monthly newsletters are also posted on the bulletin board outside the office and hard copies are available on the rack in the office.
Our hope is that this change will make the newsletter more accessible and easier to read.
Please continue to check this website often as this is where we will post our most up-to-date information.
Here is our most recent newsletter: May 2018
Mission Valley Maze Day is scheduled for August 28! 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. A parent or legal guardian must attend Maze Day.
Maze Day will take place in the MUR on Tuesday, August 29 from 8:15am-11am and 12:30pm-3:15pm.
Please note that we will not take any paperwork or give out classroom assignments outside of these times, so please schedule your vacation and work plans around this day.
Maze Day forms will be mailed out in mid-August so be on the lookout for them then!
Message to parents of 4th, 5th and 6th Graders about Health, Puberty and Sexuality Education
On May 2, 2018, the Board voted to approve the staff-recommended Sexual Health and Puberty Education curriculum for grades 7-9, which will take place in classrooms prior to the end of this school year 2018. Parents can continue to opt their children out of part, or all, of the lessons. Though the Trustees approved a Board Policy to provide instruction for grades 4-6, they voted down the recommended curriculum. A task force will be convened after July 1 to examine other materials and make a new recommendation to the Board by January 2019, for implementation in spring 2019. There will not be any Health, Puberty and Sexuality Education for elementary students until then.
THANK YOU to everyone who donated to our recent online fundraiser. It was a big success; the goal of $1000 was exceeded, and I was able to order a lot of new books to the school library. Thanks for all your support.
If you were not able to donate during the time of the fundraiser, and you would still like to, please visit the Mission Valley School website for more information.

Dear Mission Valley Families,
Please help us keep our students and staff safe by abiding by our parking lot and valet procedures. Safety is our number one priority in the morning and afternoons as our students arrive and depart from school. Please pass this message along to your carpool drivers as well.
Parents dropping off or picking up students must enter the campus from the cone lane on Denise Street. You can ONLY get into the queue off of Chadbourne. There are no left turns from Denise Street into the school loading/unloading zone. Please pull all the way forward into the loading/unloading zone and do not get out of your vehicle. Please do not stop in the middle of the circle as it impedes the traffic flow. Ten to twelve cars are able to enter the zone at one time. Once all students have been loaded or unloaded, all vehicles will leave in a group and the next group of vehicles will be allowed to enter. You will be asked to go around the block and begin the procedure again if your student has not entered your vehicle by the time the cars are directed to leave the zone. Please remember the parking lots are for Mission Valley Staff only. Remember the side access road is for EMERGENCY VEHICLES, MISSION VALLEY STAFF and CAFETERIA DELIVERIES ONLY.
Students are not allowed to wait anywhere for shuttle drives other than the “carpool” zone in the valet lane.
The parking lots in the front and the back of the school are for staff parking only.
Please do not park in front of the entrance to the school. Even though it may be coned off, this is a fire lane and must be kept clear at all times.
Please do not use the rear parking lot for any reason between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm.
Students are NOT to walk through the parking lots for any reason.
