Principal’s Message: 


Dear Imai Families,


Parent Teacher Conferences are critical opportunities for families and teachers to discuss students’ progress toward standards and academic levels, as well as their social-emotional development. Conference week this year is December 4-8. Every day that week is a minimum day. Students will be released at 11:55 a.m. 


By November 17, all families should have received  an email from your child’s teacher with a google survey link or instructions on how to sign up. Please fill out before November 30th. If you are unable to sign up for an appointment using this method, please contact the office at 650-526-3590 before November 30th and we will be happy to assist you.


For student and staff safety, it's very important for our school to limit points of entry during school hours. As you know, we have been working on enabling the locks on our field gates during the school day. Beginning Nov. 27, the field gates will be locked from the outside shortly after the last morning bell rings.  Parents will be able to access school field gates for student pick up when the dismissal bell rings. The public will continue to have access to school fields on weekends and on weekday evenings after 4 p.m. at elementary schools and after 5 p.m. at middle schools.  If the gates malfunction after hours, you can call (650) 526-3248 x1004. Thank you for supporting our safety procedures.

Better Together: November

This month’s theme for #BetterTogetherMVWSD is Empathy. Empathy is fundamental in promoting understanding, compassion, and unity among individuals and communities. It enables us to connect with others on a deeper level, to share their joys and sorrows, and to stand in their shoes, even when we may not fully comprehend their experiences. Recognizing United Against Hate Week is an important time of year as it underscores the need to combat discrimination, prejudice, and bigotry in all their forms. By participating in this initiative, we reaffirm our commitment to fostering a community where empathy is not just a concept but a guiding principle that helps us build a world where people of all backgrounds can coexist harmoniously, free from fear and hatred. Join us as we recognize United Against Hate Week with activities and programming taking place November 13-17th at all school sites. For more information about Better Together, visit
