What will return to school look like at the start of the 2020-21 academic year?
Remote learning will be offered at the start of the year (see details below on how this will be conducted for different grade levels).
If schools are allowed to resume in-person, the following will be offered:
Union City campus will offer both all remote and hybrid learning (2 days in school/3 days remote).
Castro Valley campus will offer both all remote and in-school 4-5 days a week.
On both campuses, parents will be able to choose which plan they'd like for their child.
In the event that school reopens for in-person instruction, what safety measures have been taken by the school administration?
We have spent this summer preparing for the fall reopening in the midst of a pandemic- we've cut no corners. Below are just some
ways how we have been preparing:
We invested in a thermal heat imaging camera that takes the temperatures of anyone that enters the building and reflects the results on a screen at the front desk.
We invested in touch-free hand sanitizers that must be used by anyone that enters the school premises.
How will Remote Learning be conducted when the 2020-21 academic year starts?
Grades Jr. K-3 will be emailed the weekly work (broken up into days and subjects) as well as daily email communications with journal prompts. Teachers will use Google Classroom, chats, hangouts, online Scholastic magazines, age-appropriate videos, and weekly Zoom meetings so students can see each other and their teacher.
Grades 4-5 will be emailed the weekly work (broken up into days and subjects) as well as daily email communications with journal prompts. Teachers will use Google Classroom, chats, hangouts, online Scholastic magazines, and age-appropriate videos. Zoom meetings will start effective April 6 to teach math and French and enable students to see each other and their teachers.
Grades 6-8 will have their classwork and homework posted on Teacherease as well as on Google Classroom. Teachers will regularly use Google Classroom, chats, hangouts, and age-appropriate videos. Zoom meetings will start effective April 6 to teach math, English, French, Spanish, and history, science, art, drama, and music. This will also enable students to see each other and their teachers, get instruction directly from the teachers, and feel less isolated.
Remote Learning - what if more help is needed - to be updated
Submitting completed school work?
Tuition payments? Due to the uncertainties of how the school year will start, MHMS Administration has reduced the first tuition payment. We realize that the changes in the orders mandated by the local and federal authorities has made planning very difficult for both the school and our families.
