Marina High School Home
The Monterey Peninsula Unified School District initiated an internal Task Force to begin exploring the reopening of our schools in the 2020-21 school year based on the new guidelines released from the California Department of Education and the California Department of Public Health. The guidelines require schools to consider hybrid schedules in order to limit the total number of students on campus at one time and ensure that students are kept at least 6 feet apart where practical. MPUSD held four community Town Hall meetings to provide information, answer questions and to hear input from families.
MPUSD's Summer Feeding Program offers meals to students during the summer months at six school locations. Learn more about the locations and times by clicking the title link.
Please take a moment to read an important message regarding the state of our country from Superintendent Diffenbaugh.

Monterey County Herald: Guest Editorial PK Diffenbaugh: State Budget Must Reflect Our Values: Invest in Schools
Educators will be forced to overcome this budget challenge — offering services despite the lack of adequate resources. We shouldn’t have to. It is a reflection of our societal values that we continue to underfund our schools while relying on them to be the primary institution responsible for meeting the needs of our most vulnerable populations.

The COVID-19 global health crisis has forced the closure of schools across the country and prompted sudden shifts to Distance Learning. In response, the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District Board of Education discussed and approved Resolution #19/20-25: Implementation of Proposed Changes in Grading System and Graduation Requirements for spring semester 2020 at their regularly scheduled Board meeting on April 14, 2020.
Spring Break was very different this year as compared to other years, but we hope you had an opportunity to find some joy and rest. As our Spring Break comes to an end this Friday, March 27, I wanted to provide you some important information about school closures and our transition to online/distance learning. Today, the Monterey County Superintendent of Schools Dr. Deneen Guss and county district superintendents decided that all schools within Monterey County will be closed until at least May 4th.
Superintendent PK Diffenbaugh shares a message with families regarding an update on distance learning, technology access, and breakfast/lunches for students.
