Elementary Growth and Development

The Moreland School District will be updating our elementary growth and development program to be in compliance with the new requirements of the California Healthy Youth Act. Therefore, we will not be providing grades 4 and 5 growth and development instruction this spring. During the 2020-2021 school year, we will create a task force to help with the selection process of new instructional materials to use for elementary growth and development instruction. For additional information on the K-6 requirements of the California Healthy Youth Act, please click the heading of this announcement.

Student Travel Over Spring Break

As spring recess approaches, we would like to remind you to please take all necessary precautions to protect yourselves and our community from this and any illness.
People who travel outside the country will be screened upon re-entry to the United States, as determined by federal and state officials. Moreland School District does not have the authority to monitor travel of our students or staff.
If you travel to a Level 3 country with COVID-19 travel advisories during the upcoming spring break, you will be subject to the any CDC guidelines currently in place. Visit the CDC website for a list of destinations with risk of community spread of Coronavirus.
If you travel to any affected Level 2 country we urge you to follow all related guidelines to support the health and safety of our community.
Please inform your school site staff if you are traveling to any country outside the United States.

Precautionary Measures & Exposure Notices

Precautionary Measures
Moreland’s District custodial staff has been instructed to conduct deeper cleanings at our schools with extra effort on areas considered high-risk (e.g., bathrooms, athletic areas, cafeteria/kitchen, health room/nurse's office) and high-touch points (e.g., door handles, hand railings, lockers, and shared desks).

Exposure Notices
Exposure Notices are sent to families to notify them when their children may have been exposed to a communicable disease at school (i.e., Strep Throat, Impetigo, Hand, Foot, and Mouth Disease). The notices alert families to watch for signs of that illness and seek medical advice when necessary. Effective March 2, 2020, schools will be distributing Exposure Notices via Aeries Communication. Anderson will continue to print and send paper copies of Exposure Notices to families. Thank you.

Anderson March Parent/Teacher Conferences - Click Here for Dismissal Schedule

We will continue to have parent/teacher conferences as scheduled in March.

Parent conferences will begin on Thursday, March 12th for grades TK-3 and on Monday, March 16th for grades 4-5. This is your opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss his/her progress and review the report card. Conferences are optional for children in fourth and fifth grade who are meeting grade level standards. All children in kindergarten through third grade will have a conference appointment.
