Weekly Update 10/4/21

Hello Mission Bay Families!

 

Here are some important announcements for the week of 10/4.  We have many important announcements, please read the entire communication.

 

  • COVID testing at MB -  Free COVID testing is available for all MB students on Thursdays.

Fill out the Consent Form and Release of Information Form found on the district website under "COVID-19 Testing". After those forms are filled out and returned to school, you must make an appointment online with UCSD each week for your student to be tested. You may make the appointment here. We recommend that students get tested weekly for the health and safety of everyone on campus. 

Students who make an appointment for testing should show their appointment verification to their teacher to get a pass, then report to the Counseling Conference room at the end of the Main Office hallway for testing at their appointed time.

  • Please complete LCFF - Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF) form.  This is important for funding the school programs. Parents can visit the PowerSchool Parent Portal to access the electronic LCFF Form.  The form is only available in Parent accounts. You can not access the form using your child’s id and password.  Log in using your browser (not the app) and click on LCFF Data Collection icon on the left side of the screen.  Follow the on-screen instructions.  If you do not have a Parent Portal account, please contact agriffin@sandi.net

 

  • Picture day will take place on Monday, October 4th in the Auditorium foyer.  Students who need pictures and IDs will receive passes on 10/4.  Students who want to re-take a picture should report to the Auditorium foyer from 8:15 - 8:45, during lunch, or after school till 4:00.

 

  • Senior portraits will take place October 4- 8. This year, Senior Photos are being offered on campus during the school day. Students can go to the Senior section on the Mission Bay website to see the day and time of their session.  Your student will receive a pass with specific instructions for their 15 minute session from their teacher.  

 

Prestige will provide a tux or dress drape for Senior Portraits. If you would like to choose an alternate option, you can wear a SOLID BLACK top that is *professional or *formal/semi-formal.
