Our monthly Parent Bulletins are no longer being sent home with students. They will be emailed to all parents.
Here is our latest newsletter: March 2017
You can access past newsletters on this site under "Calendars & News". In our News section, you will also find a version of the newsletter in Chinese. Monthly newsletters are also posted on the bulletin board outside the office and hard copies are available on the rack in the office.
The school district has gone green also! They will no longer be printing out paper copies of the lunch menus, but you can see the latest menu by clicking on this link:
March Madness at Mission Valley Library
Online Fundraiser begins Monday March 13!!
Beginning Monday, March 13 and ending Monday, March 27, we are having an online fundraiser to purchase new books for the library. All of the proceeds will be used for the purchase of books. This fundraiser is operated in collaboration with Perma-Bound Books, one of our main book suppliers.
The students at Mission Valley love to read, and this will be a great opportunity to buy new books that they want to borrow from the library. I am also hoping to replace popular books that are damaged or in bad repair.
The goal for the fundraiser is $1500. Donating is easy; just copy and paste the link below to your browser. The minimum donation is $10.
Thank you so much for supporting Mission Valley Library and helping us reach our goal. Mrs. Jenny Langford, LMT
Dear Mission Valley Families,
Please help us keep our students and staff safe by abiding by our parking lot and valet procedures. Safety is our number one priority in the morning and afternoons as our students arrive and depart from school. Please pass this message along to your carpool drivers as well.
Parents dropping off or picking up students must enter the campus from the cone lane on Denise Street. You can ONLY get into the queue off of Chadbourne. There are no left turns from Denise Street into the school loading/unloading zone. Please pull all the way forward into the loading/unloading zone and do not get out of your vehicle. Please do not stop in the middle of the circle as it impedes the traffic flow. Ten to twelve cars are able to enter the zone at one time. Once all students have been loaded or unloaded, all vehicles will leave in a group and the next group of vehicles will be allowed to enter. You will be asked to go around the block and begin the procedure again if your student has not entered your vehicle by the time the cars are directed to leave the zone. Please remember the parking lots are for Mission Valley Staff only. Remember the side access road is for EMERGENCY VEHICLES, MISSION VALLEY STAFF and CAFETERIA DELIVERIES ONLY.
Students are not allowed to wait anywhere for shuttle drives other than the “carpool” zone in the valet lane.
The parking lots in the front and the back of the school are for staff parking only.
Please do not park in front of the entrance to the school. Even though it may be coned off, this is a fire lane and must be kept clear at all times.
Please do not use the rear parking lot for any reason between the hours of 8 am and 4 pm.
Students are NOT to walk through the parking lots for any reason.

ATTENTION PARENTS OF 6th GRADERS:
PERTUSSIS BOOSTER: NO SHOT! NO SCHOOL!
Pertussis Booster Required for 7th Grade – 2017/2018 School Year
All students entering the 7th grade in the 2017/2018 school year must receive a Tdap (Pertussis/ Whooping Cough) booster shot before entering school in August 2017.
Proof of the vaccine must include: Student’s name, date of birth, vaccine name, date vaccine administered and name of the clinic, office, or doctor administering the vaccine.
Families with Private Insurance
You may obtain the Tdap booster from your primary care physician. Kaiser Permanente members can view their student’s Immunization Record on-line to verify if their student has already received the Tdap booster. A print-out of the Kaiser Permanente Immunization Record can be accepted as proof of the Tdap vaccination.
Families without Insurance/Families with Medi-Cal
The W.O.W. Mobile Health Clinic provides immunizations to uninsured and underserved District residents. For more information on the mobile clinic schedule or to schedule an appointment, please call (510) 608-3203 or refer to the following website: http://www.whhs.com/wow/.
Tri-City Health Center also offers immunizations for students who are uninsured or have Medi-Cal. Please contact Tri-City Health Center at (510) 770-8040 to schedule an appointment. Tri-City Health Center is located at 2299 Mowry Avenue, Suite 3B, Fremont, CA 94538.
More detailed information regarding the Pertussis requirement can be found at: http://www.shotsforschool.org/frequently-asked-questions/tdap-parents/. If you have further questions or concerns you may contact the Fremont Unified School District Health Services Coordinator, Cheryl Knight at (510) 657-2350 ext. 12487.
We highly encourage you to have your student receive the TDAP vaccine now and to bring proof to your student’s school office as soon as possible. This will prevent delaying registration and selection of courses for 7th grade.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation!
