Principal’s Message: 

Dear Imai Families,


This week due to the heat we are noticing students are forgetting to bring two water bottles, please remind them that we want to make sure they are drinking water throughout the day so please bring enough water. If you have extra water bottles at home and would like to donate them to us, we are taking donations. 


We are asking families to please keep their child at home if they are not feeling well. Signs to look for are headaches, runny noses, sore throats, etc…  If your child has any of those symptoms we will ask you to get them tested before coming back to school. Please help us out by letting your child rest and only send them back to school once they are feeling better. 


Please check your inbox for an important email from supt@mvwsd.org with an update on COVID testing on campus, how to upload your child’s COVID documents to PowerSchool and how to up the effectiveness of kids’ COVID masks.


Sincerely,


Arline Siam

Principal
