We hope you’re enjoying Spring Break. We want to provide a reminder about the availability of FREE COVID-19 take-home rapid tests at our MPUSD COVID-19 testing center offered through our partner Heal 360.

UPDATE: Masks in schools

From the very beginning of the pandemic, the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District has adhered to guidance from the California Department of Public Health and our county health department. We intend to follow the updated state guidance unless more restrictive measures are adopted by the Monterey County Health Department. In accordance with the state’s update, effective Monday, March 14, 2022, masks will be strongly recommended but not required for students (regardless of vaccination status) at all MPUSD school sites and departments.

Town Halls in English and Spanish will be held this evening (March 1) at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. to learn more and ask questions. Read full story for links to Town Halls.
