MVLA Update

 
November 19, 2020
 
Dear MVLA Community,
 
In an effort to head off a surge in coronavirus cases that could overwhelm the state’s health care system, California Governor Newsom has imposed an overnight curfew effective this Saturday, requiring most non-essential work, movement, and gatherings to stop between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m.
 
The new stay-at-home order affects 41 California counties under the ‘purple tier’ – including Santa Clara and neighboring Alameda, Stanislaus, San Benito, and Santa Cruz counties.
 
The order will last until December 21, but the Governor has said the order could be extended if infection rates and disease trends do not improve.
 
Within MVLA, we are analyzing the impact of not only the curfew but the move back to the purple tier.  Per county order, we are now pausing our plans to increase cohorts and athletic conditioning programs.  We plan to continue with the cohorts currently in place while we are in the purple tier.  During this period, we will continue to assess student needs and will communicate our targeted cohort additions when they are formed.
 
I urge you all to continue to practice social distancing, avoid large gatherings, wear your mask, and practice good hygiene and handwashing.  It will take all of us to take the necessary actions to prevent COVID-19 from spreading further.
 
I hope you are staying well, and helping others in your households to be the same. 
 
Nellie Meyer, Ed.D.

MVLA Update

 
November 17, 2020
 
Dear MVLA Community,
 
I want to update you on new restrictions and recommendations from state and local public health officials.  The news that Santa Clara County has returned to the 'purple' tier - California's most restrictive - comes as COVID-19 cases have dramatically increased across the state. Here is a summary of changes that take effect in Santa Clara County today. Under the state and county guidelines, schools may not reopen in the purple tier. (Read more here.) MVLA continues to plan for the eventual reopening of our schools when conditions allow.
 
We continue to follow state guidelines toward reopening.  We do not know when we will be able to return, but we will be prepared with a transition and return plan. Over the course of the next several weeks, we will be holding virtual meetings and focus groups with a variety of stakeholder groups, including staff, students, and families, to share information on our current status as well as these draft plans. Please refer to
www.mvla.net for further information.
 
My continued thanks to our teachers, staff, students, families, and community partners for their continued dedication to MVLA and each other. I appreciate the continued creativity, resourcefulness, and resilience in which we continue to navigate these challenging times.
 
Sincerely,
 
Nellie Meyer, Ed.D.
Superintendent
