Weekly COVID-19 Update
Cumulative Case count: (56)
Several parents have asked if our COVID protocols will be changing soon. We have been told that CDPH will be looking at modifying their rules for California public schools on 2/28/22. We have also been told that Governor Newsom will be releasing his new ‘COVID plan’ later this afternoon. As soon as we learn of any relaxing of any COVID-related school rules, we’ll let you know ASAP.
REMINDER: Updated CDPH guidance has reduced the isolation requirement for individuals that have tested positive for COVID-19 to five days IF symptoms have resolved and they test negative on day five. Our basic parent-student COVID protocols are here.
APEX Fun Run Update
THANK YOU to all the students and families who helped make our Fun Run event such a success! Preliminary fundraising numbers show that we raised just over $20,000 for our MMCA PTA! THANK YOU ALL!!!

Re-Enrollment for 2022/2023
It’s time for our annual re-enrollment applications for our existing families. We do this so that we know how many students we can enroll from the lottery for the next school year. Existing students are automatically re-enrolled and are exempted from the lottery as long as the forms are submitted by the deadline. This year, we’re trying to simplify things for returning families and have made a Google Form for re-enrollment. Please click on this link HERE to complete re-enrollment applications for your child(ren). The deadline for re-enrollment to guarantee your child’s spot for the next school year is February 17th (today!). We will follow up with any families who don’t respond.
