“At the close of last week, it marked one year since the closure of our schools at the onset of the pandemic,” Dr. Kimberly Berman wrote in a message to families on Wednesday, March 17. “It was a momentous day to announce, on this one year anniversary, that our schools would reopen to full days once again.”
Asynchronous learning days for all students are planned for April 1 and 2. This will allow teachers to prepare for transition.
Detailed schedules have been provided to families by principals. A checklist sharing information for internal processes as the district prepares for full-day learning is available and updated on the Mill Valley
School District website Full-Day In-Person Learning page.
The move is potentially aided by the announcement this week by Dr. Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that a new study suggests three feet, not six feet, was sufficient distance for students if they adhere to safety precautions like 100% mask wearing.
