Please follow the steps outlined below to return your child’s instrument: 

  • Please make an appointment on the following link: http://mvw.sd/instruments

  • Before you arrive, please ask your student to make sure that all pieces of the instrument are in the case. 

  • For your safety and the safety of our staff, please be sure you wear a mask during your appointment. 

  • You’ll have only a 5-minute slot so please be on time. 

PLEASE NOTE: If your student is in the Honors Summer program with CSMA, please do not return the instrument. We will email you the date the instruments should be returned upon completion of the program. 

If your child has selected an instrumental elective in 6th grade, the middle school will send information about instruments in August 2022.

TK-4 grade students: Turn in Chromebooks by end of year

MVWSD is proud to provide a device for learning to every student, as well as access to the Internet both at home and school. Regular access to the Internet facilitates instruction by allowing students to research and communicate, and ensures equitable access to learning for all students.

All students (grades TK-7) who are not returning in the fall should turn in Chromebooks by June 3.

The District is finalizing its draft of the LCAP (Local Control Accountability Plan).

These documents are the blueprints that guide all of the District’s work for the benefit of our students.


Beginning May 18, stakeholders are welcome to comment on the draft LCAP plan. You may read the presentation and supporting materials at mvwsd.org/lcap and make comments.

May Better Together Infographic 

May is Asian Pacific American Heritage Month, which celebrates the histories of Americans hailing from across the Asian continent and from the Pacific islands of Melanesia, Micronesia and Polynesia. May 7, 1843, marks the arrival of the first Japanese immigrants to the United States. And May 10, 1869, or Golden Spike Day, recognizes the completion of the first transcontinental railroad in the U.S., which had significant contributions from Chinese workers. AAPI Heritage Month gives us a chance to celebrate and center the unique journey of all AAPI immigrants and citizens in the United States and their unique life experiences, traditions, and cultures. Please see the attached flyers or visit http://mvwsd.org/bettertogetherMVWSD.


MVWSD seeking District Equity Advisory Committee members

MVWSD is continuing our work by engaging meaningfully with the community on issues of equity through the District Equity Advisory Committee (DEAC). The goal of the DEAC is to provide feedback to the Superintendent on how to support MVWSD towards achieving its goals of becoming a more equitable and inclusive school district.


We are seeking a combination of district-level leaders, principals, teachers, staff members, and parent participants who represent the interests of both elementary and middle schools. Committee members will be expected to attend and participate virtually in meetings held monthly (on average) online during the 2022-23 school year in the evening hours. The average commitment will be approximately 20 hours per academic school year. 


Applications are due by June 3 and found at this link. More information is at https://www.mvwsd.org/about/committees.
