SMMUSD has spent the past months analyzing the state’s expectations, LA County Department of Public Health safety protocols, the district’s staffing
and fiscal situation, what neighboring districts are doing, and talking to parents and teachers as part of the school reopening planning process.
SMMUSD staff has now drafted two options for reopening that address the safety protocols and support the social-emotional needs of students.
These two models and safety protocols for reopening will be discussed with the community in various meetings throughout the month of October. The district is seeking the community’s input before the school board makes a final decision at a special board meeting on November 12.
You’re invited to the discussions at a virtual town hall meeting at 6pm on Wednesday, October 21st. This meeting will have a secondary school focus. There is a further meeting at 6pm on Monday, October 26th that will have an elementary focus.
For full information, please see Dr. Drati’s message of October 9th, here.

Does your student usually qualify for free or reduced lunch? If so, please read this important update.
While for now ALL students in the district are entitled to free grab-and-go bagged meals, as of December 31st (or earlier if USDA funding runs out before then) only students eligible for free or reduced school meals will be able to participate in the program.
Why is this important?
SMMUSD wants families to submit applications NOW for the free and reduced lunch program so that students don’t miss out when the “free for ALL” program ends.
Having an approved application on file is important for families to ensure seamless service once the “free for ALL” program ends.
Information about the number of students on free and reduced lunch program also helps the district get reimbursement for the program and the data is also used to help schools qualify for Title 1 funding.
What do I need to do?
If your student might qualify for free or reduced lunch, please complete your application here.
To see SMMUSD’s message in full see here.
Want details about the current “free for ALL” grab-and-go breakfast and lunch program?
Details of where students can collect their free bagged breakfast and lunch are in SMMUSD’s meal program update, here.
SMMUSD wants your feedback on how Distance Learning is going. Please take a moment to complete the Distance Learning Survey.
Your feedback will be used to guide the district in making any needed improvements and in duplicating successes, so your feedback really does count!
The survey deadline is Friday, October 2, 2020 at 5pm.
On Monday, September 21st, Dr. Drati sent out an email to the SMMUSD community about school reopening plans. Read Dr. Drati’s update here.
