We want to make you aware that California state law, the California Healthy Youth Act, (CHYA), requires that comprehensive sexual health education and HIV prevention education be provided to students at least once in middle school or junior high school and once in high school, starting in grade 7. Students in 9th grade will be receiving instruction (Health Smart curriculum from ETR publication) as one part of their semester-long Freshman Seminar: Health and Wellness course (depending on your child’s schedule, they may be offered this in the current fall 2021 semester or the spring 2022 semester).
MPUSD held a districtwide Town Hall on September 16 with an update on the school year, including COVID-19 protocols, process and communication. The PowerPoint presentation and video archive is available.

Message from the Superintendent on Health and Safety at our Schools: As we close the second full week of instruction, I wanted to express how excited we are to return to in person instruction and how proud I am of our school community's efforts to return to school safely. Your child's health and well being is our top priority, and I want to update you on our current health mitigation efforts, as well as increased support we are working to provide in the coming weeks.
