Hello Marauder Families,

We are resending the letter from the district that was sent out yesterday. Please remember that if you plan to return in person we need you to fill out the survey by Monday, March 22, 2021. I also wanted to let you know that we are working on an informational video that should better explain how we will manage the safety of our students while on campus. The video should be complete soon but here are just a few highlights of the safety changes that have already taken place.

  1. We have air filters in every room right now, and in rooms that don’t have exterior ventilation, we have two air filters.
  2. We have taken out all drinking fountains and have installed bottle fillers with filtered water for our students.
  3. We have marked paths of travel for our students and have included signage all over the campus to remind our students about the importance of distancing and washing their hands.
  4. We have also identified directional paths of travel for staircases and have identified paths of travel in hallways as well.
  5. Desks will be strategically placed in the classrooms to ensure 5 feet of social distancing at all times.
  6. Additional PPE will be available in all classrooms including wipes, masks and cleaning supplies.
  7. Our newest classrooms in our math complex are equipped with exterior retractable walls (yes, the exterior wall is able to open up) that can be opened up to greatly improve ventilation.
  8. All lunches will be provided at no cost and will be available as students exit the campus after period 3.

More information will be coming out soon, but we can’t wait to see you all again soon! Below is the letter from yesterday.

Dear Mira Mesa Families,

We plan to continue providing quality online learning for families who choose to have their student(s) remain online and to also provide an Onsite/Online Hybrid model beginning on April 12th. 

The Onsite portion of the hybrid will provide students with up to four days of onsite instruction for 4 hours provided by our classroom teachers. For the remainder of each school day/week, students in the hybrid model will work independently on lessons provided by their teachers. This “asynchronous learning” will be done both online and offline. As soon as we finalize our Onsite/Online Hybrid model, we will provide you with specific details about your child’s schedule.

Our goal is to continue to provide a safe learning environment throughout the entire day for students and offer additional time beyond the instructional day. Additional time beyond the school day may be provided by staff and not necessarily by your child’s teacher. Your input will be necessary to determine the level of additional opportunities that may be provided.

Based on the number of students who choose the Onsite/Online Hybrid model, Mira Mesa High School may need to decrease the amount of time students spend on campus in order to protect everyone’s health. We will always maintain the highest possible health and safety conditions. In this case, it may be necessary to proceed with a 2 days on campus, 2 days off campus model, for students who are receiving their live instruction through the Onsite/Online Hybrid model. 

Students receiving special education services will receive the services outlined in their Individualized Education Plan (IEP) in both the Onsite/Online Hybrid and the Online Only instructional models.

Please finalize your choice by completing this Instructional Model Choice Form indicating your choice for either the Onsite/Online Hybrid or the Online Only model by March 22, 2021. Please complete ONE form PER CHILD, using your child's student ID.   

If your response is not received by Monday, March 22, 2021, your child will be assigned to the Online Only model.  Families who wish to change their selection during the final weeks of the school year may be accommodated based on the availability of physical space, adhering to health and safety guidelines.
