MUSD policy does not allow any medication to be given at school, including "over the counter" medication, without having a Physician's permission note on file.Parents should prepare for the "occasional headache, etc." by having their Student's Physician fax a note to the school if they would like the school to be able to administer medication. Notes are good for one school year.Student's are NOT allowed to carry any medication at school without permission from the School Nurse.
For ATTENDANCE, please call Teri at (707) 987-1441. Please add this number into your phone!
Attendance cannot be changed after 48 hours. Parents must provide the note, the reason, and the excuse within 48 hours of the absence and we cannot go back in after that to change a student's attendance. The state has tightened everything up and we need to make sure our data is consistent. Parent Knowledge is no longer accepted as an excused absence by the State.

Once A Week Take A Peek-Fight back against head lice! Use proper detection comb to trap head lice.
If head lice are spotted, take a close look at all the family, including yourself, and ask close family and friends to check as well. Inform the school.
Should your child stay home?
Check your child for head lice on a weekly basis and treat straight away when live lice are found. We do have a NO NIT policy, once your child has no live lice or nits they can attend school, child care and all other activities as usual. Please take your child to the office to be checked by staff. If nits or live lice are found your child will have to return home with parent/guardian. Please check your child’s head for head lice weekly. If we all work together we can eliminate the problem quickly and prevent the spread to other students.

For $10 a month you can help support 2 teachers (one 7th and one 8th grade) for classroom materials, supplies, and/or necessities.
