SCHOOL CLOSURE UPDATES

 

August 3, 2020

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear families, 

 

On behalf of the board of education, I hope you had a good weekend. As we head into our last full week before school starts, I hope you are ready to begin the new school year. Please ensure that you log onto the Parent Portal and complete the enrollment verification for your child. This needs to be done for all students before school starts. We’ve created this how-to guide to help you through the process and it is also available in Spanish. 

 

Many people have been asking what the schedule will look like for distance learning. Your school will have that information for you by next week. However, you should plan on having your child receive three to four hours of instructional minutes depending on their grade level. This would include live interactions with your child’s teacher and independent work and assignments.

 

In preparation for the start of school, you should start getting back into a routine of getting a good night sleep so students can be up and ready for classes early. Try to carve out a space for your child to do his or her work. They could start using this space now to read or write and build a habit of work so they are ready to go when school starts next week. 

 

If you have a new student, which includes transitional kindergarten or kindergarten students, and were not able to pick up their Chromebook on Friday, please contact the school to see where and when you may pick it up. 

 

If you have any questions, please reach out to your school’s principal. They are looking forward to working with you with you and your child. 

 

Have a good week!

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Dear families, 

 

In two weeks, we will be returning to school in a whole new way. I sincerely appreciate you for understanding that this is not an easy process for anyone. Please know that we deeply care about each and every student and staff member, which is why we take this seriously and continue to follow all guidelines set forth by the Riverside County Public Health Department, California Department of Public Health and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

 

As I mentioned last week, any new students, which includes transitional kindergarten or kindergarten students, will receive a Chromebook on July 31. If you have a Chromebook from last year and need support in preparation for the new school year, please visit the Technology, Innovation and Assessment webpage at https://bit.ly/MVUSD-TIA to submit a request for help. 

 

As a reminder, all students in our district will automatically be registered for the next grade level. However, generally, parents and students are asked to visit the school campus and submit paperwork for enrollment verification such as updating contact information, change of address, submitting acknowledgement forms and so on. This year, the process will be a little different to complete some of those requirements. Please continue to check your emails, phone calls and texts for more information regarding the new process.

 

I understand some student athletes are wondering what they should do during the time that sports are not allowed. We created a list of activities for them to do at home while we get clearance from the county and state to safely resume athletic activities. Please visit our website for more information on at-home sports activities. We hope this information is helpful for your student to stay engaged and maintain focused on their goals.

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Families, 

 

Today was an incredible day filled with many celebrations!  We started the day off congratulating 80 summer graduates who worked very hard to get their credits and earn a diploma during such a challenging time. We also recognized our seven Students of the Year who recently received $500 scholarships from the Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce. Isn’t that amazing? Right after recognizing them, we honored our ASTERISK interns who participated in a five-week internship program this summer. Five of those interns worked in our office, and I am proud to say that these students will move on to colleges and universities in the fall.

 

Earlier this week at the board meeting, I mentioned that our new transitional kindergarten and kindergarten students would be getting Chromebooks on July 31. If you have a new TK or kindergarten student, be on the lookout for additional information with times and directions. In case you missed our email yesterday, also at the meeting, the board voted for the district to start the school year in a distance learning model through October 30. You will get emails with more details from your schools at the beginning of next month. 

 

Today, our board is having a study session to discuss the role school resource officers should have on campus. The meeting will be streamed online, and you can find it by going to mvusd.net and clicking on the board menu tab. We know this is an important issue for you because we had so many of you participate in our safety survey. Tonight’s meeting is for discussion only and the board will not be taking any action. Any decisions will be made and voted upon at future meetings.

 

I hope you have a good rest of the week and a great weekend.

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents, 

 

On behalf of the board of education, I hope you all had a great weekend and stayed safe.

 

We have a busy week ahead of us with lots of work with our board of education and lots to celebrate. Tomorrow, July 21, our board will meet and discuss plans for reopening schools. We already know that we will begin the school year with distance learning, but we will discuss what that entails now and discuss what school could look like when we are back on campus. The board will meet again on Thursday, July 23 for a study session regarding school resources officers and their role on campuses.

 

Also on Thursday, we have three drive-through celebrations. The first celebration is for our high school summer graduates. We have approximately 80 graduates this year and are very proud of them for persevering through this challenging time. We will then have a celebration for our Students of the Year. These seven students all received $500 scholarships from the Moreno Valley Chamber of Commerce. Finally, on Thursday, we will honor our students who participated in our ASTERISKS internship program. Approximately 50 students got hands-on experience in a variety of areas for five weeks while being paid. We were so fortunate to have been able to offer the program this summer and are grateful to the companies that offered these valuable internships.

 

We have three and a half weeks before school starts. If you haven’t registered your child, make sure you do soon. If your child attended school last year, and did not apply for a transfer from their school of residence, they will be rolled over to the next school year without disruption. TK students will roll to their school of residence unless a transfer to keep them at a different school has been submitted. 

 

Please make sure you do your part to help slow the spread of COVID-19. The more we do together, the sooner we can get back to school.

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

July 17, 2020

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents, 

 

During the past few days, we have received updated guidance, recommendations and information that has affected our reopening plans. Many of you have been communicating to us and submitting surveys regarding your thoughts on reopening schools. One of the biggest concerns of reopening schools was students and staff potentially exposing themselves to COVID-19. However, on the other side, there are parents who want their children to return to in-person classes due to academic, social, or personal reasons.

 

We have been working with our associations and preparing for various plans - distance learning, in school, or both - but despite our greatest efforts to prepare for having all options available for families, today Governor Newsom announced that all school districts in the counties that are on the state’s COVID-19 monitoring list will have to conduct distance learning. As you know, Riverside County has been on the state’s monitoring list since mid-to-late June, which means all of our schools have to continue with distance learning this fall. Our board will take official action through a resolution on Tuesday, July 21 at the board meeting. 

 

I know this may be upsetting to families who want things to go back to normal. On behalf of the Board of Education, we have to continue prioritizing student and staff safety. We truly care about each of our 33,000 students and 3,800 staff members. The current data and statistics is worse than it was on March 13, 2020, when school districts in Riverside County were ordered to close down. There continues to be a rise in numbers of confirmed COVID-19 cases and we remain on the state’s monitoring list. If we do not see a decrease in the spread of the virus, it is difficult to make a decision to allow students to return to school. 

 

Governor Gavin Newsom announced that one of the considerations to reopening our schools is that Riverside County would have to be off the monitoring list for 14 consecutive days. In order to reach that goal, please continue to wash your hands properly, wear your face mask properly, practice physical distancing, and avoid mixing with people outside of your household. This is a serious situation and we must work together to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. 

 

Thank you for continuously listening to our updates every week and for your patience and understanding.

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents, 

 

I want to thank all of you who participated in our safety survey. Your opinions and concerns are important to us and we had many people complete the survey. Just like the reopening schools survey, we will share the data with you when it is available.

 

Tomorrow, we expect Governor Newsom to make an announcement regarding the opening of schools in California. We hope it will add some clarity for schools and districts as we plan the 2020-21 school year. Each day, new information comes out and changes the course we must take. This is why we have been slow and deliberate in our planning and working with our employee groups and stakeholders. 

 

On Monday, the California Interscholastic Federation (CIF) is supposed to announce their plan for fall, winter and spring sports. So many of our students participate in extracurricular sports, which play a vital role in teaching students sportsmanship, teamwork and also help in physical and mental health. 

 

We will follow closely both of these announcements as our board plans to meet on Tuesday to discuss and decide on how our schools will reopen in the fall. Thank you for your continued understanding during this planning time. We hope to announce our plan to you next week.

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents, 

Today, Governor Newsom announced the closure of several indoor activities such as dine-in restaurants, wineries and tasting rooms, movie theaters, museums, family entertainment centers and cardrooms. As one of the counties that was on the state’s watchlist, Riverside County was also ordered to close fitness centers, worship services, personal care services, hair salons, barber shops, malls and offices for non-essential sectors. 

 

I know this news may be alarming, but do not lose hope. Together, we can help prevent COVID-19 by taking everyday precautionary measures and reminding others to do the same. When you wear a mask, make sure you cover your nose and mouth. When you wash your hands, make sure you scrub for at least 20 seconds. Please be familiar with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and local health official guidelines to ensure you are protecting yourself and your family. Student and staff safety is our top priority, and we are doing everything in our power to maintain a healthy, happy and safe environment for all.

 

Since our next update will be on Thursday, I’d like to remind you of our School Safety Survey, which closes on Wednesday, July 15. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey to let us know your thoughts. 

 

Please continue to follow the guidance of public health officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.   

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

I hope you are staying safe and healthy during this current spike in COVID-19. The unpredictability of the virus continues to make school reopening planning so difficult. However, our goal remains the same - to have a plan to open the 2020-21 school year for the board of education meeting on July 21. We are actively engaged with our stakeholders to come up with a plan that keeps the safety and well-being of our students and staff paramount in our decision-making. 

 

We are also interested in your opinions and concerns about safety, which is why we launched a parent school safety survey this week. I want to remind you that the survey is available for you to take through July 15. It is only nine questions related to school resources officers  and will take you less than three minutes to take, but it will provide us valuable information. Please see the information below. 

 

Did you know that we are not done with our drive-through graduation celebrations yet? That’s right, we have one more on July 23 for our students graduating during the summer. There are many reasons why students can fall short of the credits they need. Those who can make up their credits at summer school will still get the opportunity to “walk the stage” like their classmates did last month. We are proud of all of our students for their persistence and grit as they reach this important and exciting milestone. We look forward to celebrating with them later this month.

 

Please continue to stay safe and follow state and local guidance to help stop the spread of COVID-19. 

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

Recently, reports have shown an increase in positive tests for COVID-19 over the holiday weekend. On behalf of the Board of Education, please continue to follow the public health official guidelines and stay safe. 

 

We hope you were able to maintain physical distance while having a joyful time with your family and household members. Continue to cherish the moments you spend with them. This has become our new normal, and although it is different, it provides us an opportunity to be together through this difficult time. 

 

As you are aware, we launched a parent survey the past few weeks to get your input on our reopening schools plan. As we move forward to incorporate parent feedback and obtain staff feedback, we invite you to view the results on our website. 

 

No matter how we reopen, we want to make sure we provide options to meet the needs of all students. Did you know six of our elementary schools will now offer sixth grade classes? If you are interested in having your child remain in an elementary school setting for sixth grade, we still have room at Box Springs, Creekside, Ramona, Ridgecrest, and Seneca elementary schools. You can complete and submit an intra-district transfer request form.

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

On behalf of the Board of Education, I hope you have a wonderful 4th of July. The 4th of July is a commemoration of America's fateful Declaration of Independence on July 4,1776. We express our spirit by celebrating its 244th birthday through virtual festivities with friends and family. 

 

Our country is facing many challenges and I know that sometimes it can even seem overwhelming. However, I believe that we are still the greatest country. Our great diversity is our strength. Our freedom to disagree and challenge each other is what makes our country even greater. 

 

We still have to continue to become a more equitable and just society, and we can do that through education. This weekend, I hope you are safe, and take time to appreciate our freedoms and envision a brighter future for our country and young people. 

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Celebrate 4th of July Virtually

Just because you can't get together with families and friends on the 4th doesn't mean you can't celebrate. Here are three ways to celebrate the 4th virtually: 

  • Take a Virtual Tour of American Museums and Historical Sites: Institutions from sea to shining sea have thrown open their doors digitally, offering free online looks at their exhibits. This 4th, you can celebrate the holiday by delving deeper into the history of our country with virtual visits to NASA, the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, George Washington's Mount Vernon, and the Statue of Liberty.

 

  • Hold a Hot Dog Eating Contest: There's no word yet on whether Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest, one of the nation's most celebrated Independence Day events, will go on as planned. Set up your own hot dog-dining challenge, and share it through social media!

 

  • Get Your Game On: Whether it's a water balloon fight, or a corn hole match, the 4th of July is all about outdoor games. With baseball's opening day not yet announced, you might even want to set up a little sandlot so the kids can swing away. Be sure to share updates on social media as the score changes so friends and family can cheer on the teams.

June 29, 2020

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

I would like to provide you with some very important updates regarding our schools. 

 

Recently, we had a telephone meeting with the Riverside County Health Department in which Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser made some important announcements. We know that our student athletes are eager to get back to practicing and conditioning to prepare for games. You may have even seen other schools practicing for sports. However, Dr. Kaiser has made it clear to us that at this time, schools should not allow students to participate in sports. For more information, please visit www.rivcoph.org/coronavirus

 

I know it’s important to return to the things we enjoy doing, but not when it puts your child’s health at risk. We truly care about them and that is why we follow the public health officer’s guidance. 

 

We have our next board of education meeting tomorrow, Tuesday, June 30, at 7 p.m. in which the Board will vote on the budget for the 2020-2021 school year. As you know, we are still waiting on budget information from the state. However, we are very conservative in our planning as we expect this health crisis will impact us for a few years.

 

The deadline to submit the survey regarding the reopening of our schools closed last Friday. We are developing our reopening plan and part of that process was to receive feedback from you. Please remember that flexibility is key to our plan. We have to expect the unexpected. Thank you for those of you who took time to submit the survey. We look forward to analyzing the results and using it as part of our planning process.

 

In the meantime, if you are interested in your child attending an independent learning option for the 2020-2021 school year, please consider the Moreno Valley Online Academy. Some of its highlights include small class sizes, access to dual enrollment college courses, online A-G college prep courses and best of all - it has programs for students from transitional kindergarten to twelfth grade. 

 

Sincerely,



Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

I would like to provide you with some very important updates regarding our schools. 

 

Recently, we had a telephone meeting with the Riverside County Health Department in which Public Health Officer Dr. Cameron Kaiser made some important announcements. We know that our student athletes are eager to get back to practicing and conditioning to prepare for games. You may have even seen other schools practicing for sports. However, Dr. Kaiser has made it clear to us that at this time, schools should not allow students to participate in sports. 

 

I know it’s important to return to normalcy, but not when it puts your child’s health at risk. I truly care about them and that is why we follow the public health officer’s guidance. 

 

Second, we have our next board meeting this upcoming Tuesday, June 30, at 7 p.m. At this meeting, the Board will make a decision on the budget for the 2020-2021 school year.  As you know, we are still waiting on budget information from the state. However, we are very conservative in our planning as we expect this health crisis will impact us for the next several years.

 

Third, the deadline to submit the survey regarding the reopening of our schools is tomorrow, Friday, July 26. We are developing our reopening plan and part of that process is to receive feedback from you. Please remember that flexibility is key to our plan. We have to expect the unexpected. 

 

In the meantime, if you are interested in your child participating in an independent learning option, please consider the Moreno Valley Online Academy. Some of its highlights include small class sizes, access to dual enrollment college courses, online A-G college prep courses and best of all - it has programs for students from transitional kindergarten to twelfth grade. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

I hope you had a great Father’s day weekend! Although you were probably not able to head out to your favorite restaurant, many of you were able to stay in touch with your loved ones and showed appreciation for everything your father or father figure has done for you. Let’s remember to give thanks and show appreciation not only on Father’s Day or Mother’s Day, but every day! 

 

Before heading into the weekend, on Friday, June 19, 2020, the Board of Education and I participated in the Census Caravan Parade near Edgemont Elementary School to help promote participation for completing the Census. I was so excited to go out in the community and see some of our families! Although we were unable to hug, shake hands, pass out flyers or candy, it was really nice to see all of your smiling faces. If you haven’t completed the Census yet, please do. The Census will determine funding and representation for our community until the next Census takes place in 10 years.

 

As more and more places begin to open doors, please remember to practice social distancing and use face coverings. Many people have been confused whether or not they should be wearing them. The state published new official guidelines on wearing face coverings. Please read the entire document and be familiar with it. They may change, but please know that these orders were issued for your safety based on the rise and spread of COVID-19. 

 

As a reminder, our reopening schools survey closes on Friday, June 26, please take five minutes to share your thoughts. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

Today we held our last graduation celebration for the Moreno Valley Community Adult School students. It was inspirational and heartwarming to see so many students excited to walk the stage today and share their messages of thanks to their family, friends, and staff. Thank you for bringing your students to the drive-through graduation celebration to be recognized for their success. I truly enjoyed congratulating each and every one of our students.

 

As we look forward to the coming school year, please know that the safety and security of all students and staff continues to be the top priority of this district. Any decisions made will definitely take safety into consideration just as we have been doing throughout the year. Tonight, we are having a continuation of Tuesday’s Board meeting in which we will discuss the proposed budget for the 2020-2021 school year. 

 

If you haven’t already completed our reopening schools survey, please take five minutes to share your thoughts. We are still making plans, which continue to need to be adaptable to the changing situations. For example, earlier today, health officials issued a statewide order that requires Californians to wear a face covering in common and public indoor spaces and outdoors when social distancing is not possible. Previously, the state allowed local governments to decide whether or not to make it mandatory.

 

Finally, tomorrow we celebrate Juneteenth, the oldest nationally celebrated commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States. I think it represents a reminder of how far we have come as a country and yet how far we still have to go. I believe education is the key to making continued progress on equality.

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

Welcome to your first week of summer. During the summer I still will be emailing you twice a week because so many are asking what will happen next year and want updates on the reopening of schools. 

 

I want to remind you to take our parent survey to share your ideas and your concerns about your child’s educational options and experience for the fall. Although you may hear some districts already are planning to fully open in the fall, these plans are subject to change and that is one reason we are not solidifying or publicizing a plan - we do not want to put something out that isn’t set. 

 

Tomorrow, Tuesday, June 16, our Board of Education will meet and get an update on the 2020-21 school year budget. They will then vote to adopt the budget at the June 30 meeting.

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

Congratulations on making it through the 2019-20 school year. Although we had many challenges, we were able to face and overcome each one. Together, we helped each other Lift to Rise

 

On behalf of the board of education, thank you for your partnership this year. This spring, we all had to play new roles, learn new skills, and adjust to new routines. We could not have done this without each other. 

 

I know many of you are wondering what the 2020-21 school year is going to look like. I hope to have our plan to reopen schools to you by mid-July. I wish we could tell you now, but there are still too many unknowns that will affect our decisions. 

 

As part of our planning, we are engaging all stakeholders. We stand committed to working with our parents, staff, and associations as we look to 2020-21. To gather parent input, we have created a survey so you can let us know what is most important to you. We will use this information to guide our decision making process. 

 

The survey will be available until June 26.

 

We are committed to communicating with you during the summer and will provide updates via email, text and phone Mondays and Thursdays. If you have any questions or concerns, please continue to email us at publicinformation@mvusd.net throughout the summer.

 

We hope our students will continue to learn over the summer, but also get outside, try something new, and stay connected to friends and family. Enjoy your break and be safe.

 

Thank you for your continued support. We look forward to seeing you again in August.

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

Your voice is important to us. As a partner in your child’s education, we want to be as collaborative as possible. That is why it’s important for you to participate in our school reopening survey on Friday. 

 

The survey should only take a few minutes to complete but will provide us insight into what considerations and decisions our parents want us to make as we plan for the 2020-21 school year. 

 

My goal has been to keep you informed throughout the school closure and I want to continue throughout the summer. However, I will cut back these messages from three times a week to two times a week, on Tuesdays and Thursdays, beginning next week. 

 

Now is a good time to visit the Parent Portal to make sure your information is up-to-date so you are ready to get information from your child’s school or the district during the summer and the beginning of next school year.

 

Thank you for your continued support.

 

Sincerely,

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

Today I had the pleasure of attending the first two of eight graduation celebrations we will hold for our Class of 2020. Although it wasn’t our traditional graduation, both of them were so fun and our students and parents still beamed with pride and excitement as the graduates walked across the stage. 

 

Also today, State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tony Thurmond released the state’s guidance for opening schools next year. In his remarks, the superintendent said parents should expect students to wash their hands and have their temperature taken often. They will likely wear masks and only attend classes a few days a week with a small group of classmates, while keeping a social distance of six feet between each other.

 

The California Department of Public Health last week, unveiled the administration’s health and safety guidelines and considerations as schools prepare to resume in-person instruction. Among their recommendations are that all staff and students be screened before entering school facilities and that staff use cloth face coverings at all times — gloves and surgical masks are necessary for food service workers and employees with routine contact with the public. Students should be encouraged to wear the cloth coverings when physical distancing is not possible, according to the guidance.

 

We will use both of these guidebooks, along with parent and staff input, to help us in our decision-making. In addition, next week, the Riverside County Office of Education will release local guidelines that have been signed off by County Public Health Official Cameron Kaiser. This is all to say, we still have a lot more to do before we will have answers for our school opening next year.

 

I hope you have a good week and stay safe.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

I can feel the excitement in the air. Graduation celebrations begin on Monday and we only have one week of school left before our summer break.

 

I know many of you are curious about what is going to happen next year. Just today, Governor Newsom announced that schools could open next Friday. Please know that does not mean schools will open. The state still has not released its guidance, and the County Office of Public Health has authority of opening and closing schools locally. When we do open our school buildings, it is not going to look the same. 

 

Many parents are looking forward to sending their children back to school. For other parents, they may still be concerned and want their child to continue distance learning. While we have not finalized our plans for opening the 2020-21 school year, Moreno Valley Unified School District offers options to meet the needs of all students. One of those options is Moreno Valley Online Academy, which offers online learning for children in grades TK-12. The school is

designed for students who are looking for a different type of program that involves input from parents and students. Every student has an individualized learning plan that is designed to help students be successful. It is just one more option for students and parents as they look to the new school year.

 

I hope you have a good weekend. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

The events of this weekend are another painful reminder that injustice remains in our world. We can fix the broken windows and merchandise can be replaced. However, it will take more to address the inequity within our society. We continue to believe as strongly as ever that tremendous change is needed to address the inequity in our nation that African Americans and other marginalized groups have long endured. We must use education as a positive force for change in our community. 

 

Earlier today, the Board of Education and I emailed the Moreno Valley Unified School District community a letter in support of racial equality and calling out the injustice our African American community faces. Today, Riverside County declared a state of emergency and instituted a curfew. This can be very unsettling for adults and confusing or scary for young children who may not understand all of the context. 

 

I urge you not only to talk to your child, but to listen. We can learn a lot more from them if we listen. They can tell you what they understand and how it makes them feel. And, by talking, it helps them understand their own feelings. If they prefer to speak with a counselor, they can make a request by going to bit.ly/MVUSD-counselor

 

Please stay safe and remain hopeful. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

As we reach the end of month and near the end of the school year, many of you are excited for the school year to be over. However, during this summer, we will continue to offer opportunities for learning. The Superintendent’s Summer Arts Academy provides performance-based instruction and experiences in music and theater arts for students currently in grades 3-12, and will run from June 22 - July 17. The Superintendent’s Summer Learning Academy for students in grades k-4 is tentatively scheduled from June 29 - July 30.  We hope to announce our summer school program next week so students can make up course work or get ahead. Please keep an eye out for announcements from your school.

 

In addition to all of the academics, we will be very busy with planning for 2020. As I mentioned before, Board President Marsha Locke and I are on a Riverside County Office of Education task force to look at the best ways to open schools. We are committed to opening schools safely and we will continue to keep you updated on our progress. I know leaving school at the end of the year without knowing what it will look like next year can be tough but know we are taking it slow so we can be safe.

 

Have a good weekend and enjoy this warm weather. 

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

Message From Superintendent

 

Dear Parents,

 

As the county enters into an accelerated State 2 of opening, we have received many questions about why we are holding the drive-through graduations and virtual celebrations. The short answer is because we have not received approval from the county to do other events. 

 

The County’s school closure is still in effect through June 19 as is the state’s stay at home order. The Riverside County Department of Public Health gave us permission for our drive-through graduations as long as all public health precautions are taken, social distancing is maintained, and only members of the same household are in the same car.

 

We are offering virtual celebrations for our kindergarten, fifth, and eighth grade students. Having drive-through celebrations take all day and require us to shift staff around the district. And so as much as we want to celebrate all of our milestones, our priority was with our seniors who will be leaving the district. 

 

Although we are beginning to open restaurants and other businesses up, we are still in a health crisis. Schools are supposed to be only conducting essential business. As much as we would like to hold large celebrations with all of our students and families, we are limited by the county and state who are looking out for the greater community.

 

We have many accomplishments to celebrate, and we will in due time. Thank you for your continued understanding.

 

Sincerely,

 

Dr. Martinrex Kedziora

Superintendent of Schools

COVID-19 Update

Governor Gavin Newsom announced yesterday that barber shops and hair salons are allowed to re-open with modifications under the Accelerated Phase 2 stage. These businesses in Riverside County are required to follow guidelines to promote customer and employee health safety prior to re-opening. While many other personal services remain closed at this time, members of the community can help advance efforts to re-opening by getting tested for COVID-19.

 

Increasing the number of those tested will create a more accurate – and likely reduced – positivity rate, allowing Riverside County to move more quickly through the state’s phases of re-opening. Testing is free, does not require health insurance, and is easy to do. Appointments can be made by calling 800-945-6171. 

 

 We now have a site in Moreno Valley at 21401 Box Springs Rd.

Dear Parents,

 

I hope you have a great three-day Memorial Day weekend. Don’t forget our schools and offices will be closed on Monday, May 25. 

 

I hope you will take some time during this weekend to reflect and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. We owe a debt of gratitude to those who have come before us and have given their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms that make our country so great. 

 

On behalf of the board of education, thank you for your continued work. I am so proud of how engaged our students and you are in distance learning - see short report below. Our district continues to move forward and I am so excited to see how well our students and staff have adapted to distance learning.

 

Thank you,

Distance Learning Update

We are very excited about the level of engagement and participation our students at Moreno Valley Unified School District have demonstrated in Distance Learning. Since the official launch of Distance Learning on April 20, 2020, more than 95% of MVUSD students have logged on to their student accounts and many have participated in some form of Distance Learning. Our teachers are reaching out to students through Google Classroom, Zoom, Email, Class Dojo, and other platforms. Students are not only interacting with their teachers through these platforms, but are collaborating with their peers on assignments and projects. Although our students and staff have never gone through something like this, through Distance Learning, our teachers have not stopped teaching and our students have not stopped learning. We greatly appreciate our parents/guardians for their support and partnership! We are so proud of everyone.
