5th Grade Promotion Celebration

We will be celebrating our fifth-graders moving to middle school with a short promotion celebration on June 10th at 8:30 am. Parents and family members can enter the campus at 8:15 am to find a seat outside on the field. We will give families time after the celebration to take photos on campus. We ask that all family members are off campus by 9:45 so that students can come out for recess. You can check out your child and take them home early to continue celebrating with loved ones or they can stay on campus with their classmates until 12:00 dismissal. We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to celebrating your children.

COVID Testing and Registration Link - Click Here

Free testing is available Monday - Friday, before and after school at the Moreland School District Office (4711 Campbell Avenue, San Jose). Testing takes place Monday through Friday, on days when school is in session, from 7:30am - 8:30am and after school from 2:15pm - 4:00pm. We also have testing on site on Mondays and Tuesdays from 2:00 - 3:30. Parents can best support our schools by making sure their children are registered for the rapid Antigen testing through Primary Health here. Schools will continue to test staff, volunteers and students who are symptomatic, as needed.

If families can not make any of the district office testing hours, here is a list of community testing sites in the area. In addition, any FDA-approved over-the-counter (at-home) test may also be used (If positive, take a picture of results with the child's name and date of test written on the test, and email the picture to the office). Please notify your school of any positive COVID test and send the results to [email protected]

Food Drive

Dear Moreland Community,

We are so excited to launch our Food Drive next week, benefiting West Valley Community Services (WVCS). Moreland has partnered with West Valley Community Services for over five years, with a bike rodeo, back to school supply shopping, financial support for pre-pandemic summer camps, family case management, and most recently with the Park It Market food pantry truck. West Valley Community Services was recently featured in a San Jose Mercury News article.

Beginning next week, December 6-10, 2021, barrels and boxes will be available at each school site for canned drive collections. For one short week, we encourage families and students to bring in items that will make a difference to our own local Moreland community. WVCS has a big need for:

Meals in a can (soup, stew, chili)
Low sodium canned vegetables
Canned fruit in its own juice/water
Canned foods with pop-top lids
Pasta & pasta sauce
Healthy snacks (granola bars, nuts)
Mac and Cheese
Peanut Butter

Please avoid items packed in glass. WVCS does not accept expired, opened, or broken cans, packages, or boxes.

Thank you for your continued partnership!

Complete the Alternative Household Application

Since the 2021/2022 school year is serving meals at no cost to Moreland students, it is important that families complete the Alternative Household Application income application before September 25, 2021. Moreland receives funding based on students that qualify for free/reduced meal applications. Learn more here.
