Mountain View Los Altos Union High School District


Return to Campus

MVLA is implementing a phased-in approach to the re-opening of our campuses to more in-person instruction.


Starting the week of April 19 - as we return from Spring Break - students and staff will be back on campus for in-person learning. Students will attend school for half-days on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for that first week back. This half-day transition will ease students in, help make sure they understand and follow protocols, and adapt to simultaneous instruction, new technology, and construction activities on campus.
During the week of April 26, the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is administered on Tuesday, April 27, so students will return on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for full days. Beginning the week of May 3, students will continue with four full-days but will attend classes on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for the rest of the school year.

Commitment Form

Families will need to complete this Commitment Form on or before Wednesday, March 31, to indicate their choice of in-person instruction (Option 1) or entirely virtual remote instruction (Option 2). View our FAQs for more information about the two options. 
We will provide the community an update on the return to in-person instruction as we finalize the numbers of families choosing each option. We are moving forward to provide in-person instruction five days per week for the 2021-2022 school year and will include a 100% distance learning option for those who may not wish to return to in-person learning in fall 2021. 

Parent Survey

We invite MVLA families to complete this Parent Community Survey to tell us about their student's education and social-emotional experiences this school year. Your feedback, coupled with the academic assessment our teachers regularly conduct with our students, will help with our planning for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year, summer school, and the next academic year.

Summer School

Summer school enrollment is open and available for students who received Ds or Fs in academic coursework this year or received a "No Credit" mark in spring 2020 and need to retake the class(es) to meet graduation requirements. Except for Health, there are not class options for advancement via summer school. (View the summer school catalog here.) There will be a total of five sessions this summer – two for in-seat summer school and three for online summer school. Learn more here.  Applications are due Friday, April 23, 2021.
