Community Updates

The health and well-being of our school community is our highest priority and we are actively monitoring the latest information regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).  

This page provides information and resources for MCDS families and will be updated as the situation evolves.


Planning for the 2020-21 School Year

Marin Health and Human Services (MHHS) and Marin County Office of Education (MCOE) released a set of health and safety guidelines that make it possible for schools to reopen with all students on campus.

Based on these guidelines, MCDS is preparing to have students on campus this fall, and will work towards having all students back five days a week, however, only if we can do so safely.

The health and safety of our community is our primary concern. Until there is a vaccine, any scenario where students are on campus includes use of face coverings, regular hand washing, and social distancing protocols. We continue to develop alternate hybrid and distance learning models so that we can be prepared and adaptable should conditions change in the months ahead. 

We will share our final decision on opening campus, along with details on key logistics, by early August.
