Weekly COVID-19 Update
Cumulative Case count: (12)
Placer County’s COVID-19 case count is starting to trend upward again, particularly in south Placer County. As you can see in our case count, we have had some new cases in the past few weeks, and the County Public Health Doctor has told us to expect that we will have more cases in the upcoming months ahead. We need to continue to be diligent - here is our weekly reminder about our basic COVID-19 protocols regarding student illness - a link to our current student illness protocols is available here.
Student masks: As a school, since the pandemic started we’ve been giving kids masks to wear in the classroom when they’ve forgotten to bring their masks. As this year has progressed, I’ve noticed more and more students not coming to school with a mask - over the past few weeks, we are now averaging over 1000 masks per week given to students. Favor: Please help make sure that your child is remembering to bring their mask to school.
December Menu is Available in Boonli
The December menu is now available in Boonli (https://mmca.boonli.com). Please take a moment to place orders for the month (remember we have weekly deadlines on Mondays at 11:59pm, but recommend placing orders for the entire month).
Annual Board of Directors Elections Coming up
Each year MMCA seeks parents interested in taking an active role in the governance of the school by serving as a MMCA Board member. A Board member serves a two-year term which fulfills their family’s annual 40-hour volunteer requirement.
The Board of Directors defines the mission of the school and clarifies its philosophy. In conjunction with the Executive Director, the Board establishes the financial, educational, and operational goals of MMCA and ensures that they are achieved annually. The Board may be involved in facility planning, review and approval of legal documents, annual operating budgets, and staffing decisions.
The Application and candidate information packet for the upcoming election is available at this link. If you have any questions about possibly becoming a Board Member, please feel free to contact Board President Chris Ward at firstname.lastname@example.org or Mr. Boothby at email@example.com. The deadline for submitting applications is Friday, 12/3/21.

MMCA New Student Enrollment Application for 2022-23 Lottery is Now Open
In November each year we begin accepting new student applications for our next school year’s lottery. This isn’t for existing students (whose spots are already guaranteed for next year); we do re-enrollment around mid-February. Additionally, we do have some K-8th grade spots available for the current year. For both current year and next year, our new student enrollment application is available on our enrollment webpage (enrollment button right side of page).
MMCA Yearbooks are now available to pre-order online
The cost is $25 through 11/30/2021. The cost will be $30 from 12/01/2021-03/31/2022. Purchase one before the price goes up! The only way to guarantee that you receive a yearbook is to pre-order! Click the link below to order online.
Parent Volunteers Reminder - new CDPH requirements now in place
As mentioned in previous Flyers, the state is mandating that all parents who volunteer inside a classroom must:
Wear masks when indoors with students; and
Provide one of the following:
proof of vaccination (one-time submission; we’ll keep it on file in the office); or
Negative COVID test within 72 hours prior to volunteer time; or
Proof of COVID-19 diagnosis within the past year (we’re going to recognize natural immunity)
Fyi: There are lots of places that will provide FREE COVID-19 testing. One FREE COVID-19 testing location is less than 2 miles from our school site (promotional flyer below). If you have any questions regarding these requirements, please feel free to contact Mr. Boothby at email@example.com.
Parent volunteers, please don’t forget to log your volunteer hours in the Volunteer Log Binder in the office!
