where can we send thank you cards?
Hi Kara, You can send digital notes to teachers directly if preferred or mail them to us at MVC and we will get them to teachers.
Thank you cards/notes can be sent digitally to teacher email addresses. Physical cards can be sent to the school address; we can forward on your behalf.
Is there a way to (financially) support the non-teaching staff? (kitchen, bus driver, etc.)
As a teacher myself notes and emails from parents has helped me deal with those situation.
Has MVC decided if they are going to do grades for the spring semester Or go on the pass/fail like other schools are going to do. And does this effect students GPA if you do go to the pass/fail.
Is there any update regarding the Snr Trip refund?
What should students expect for AP classes/tests?
I would agree with Ms. Swing. I don’t feel that my daughter is lacking in work. The amount of work has being assigned seems a bit heavy.

have you extended the summer program registrations?
Thank you very much!!
my daughter needs these last grades this quarter for college and for some scholarships .
to the extent that the school is realizing any savings while being remote, has the administration considered any tuition refunds, discounts, etc. I realize you still have significant expenses, but surely there are savings on certain levels… electricity, buses not running, maintenance, cleaning, etc.
I was under the understanding going to pass/fail would effect students GPA. Also does effect scholarships.
to junior parents, UC has adjusted their admissions requirements in light of Covid

great to hear, did not expect a refund since the faculty are still working for the students
iPhone pauline persley
thank you for everything
Thank you Pauline.
I was very pleased to learn earlier that the bus drivers were still being paid, and am glad to hear that the school is able to continue to keep pay all of the staff during this difficult time. I truly applaud that decision.
Thank you CSB! Appreciate that!
(sorry if the is a duplicate) Has MVCS adopted, or considered adopting, a policy around student expectation how much school work they should expect to do from home on the school day? For example, are students expected to replicate a school day (7 hours)? Public schools are looking at no more than 2.5 hours a day and for 9-12 no more than 3 hours/week for subject. Is this something MVCS can consider?Has MVCS adopted, or considered adopting, a policy around student expectation how much school work they should expect to do from home on the school day?

Is MVCS considering distance learning be an option when campus opens again?
The international students make up such a huge part of the financial situation of MVC. If they are not able to attend next year, will we see a change in courses or students offerings with that possibly change.
We would be interested in distance learning too
I agree with the no refund. you have all done an amazing job reaching out to us. every staff member that my son works with has individually reached out to me personally. It takes a village and the Wise family is beyond blessed to be a part of the MVC family. thank you all!!!
Great to hear that all are getting paid! Thank you. Look forward to hearing about a benevolence fund for some of those folks who serve our kids beyond teaching. Thank you!
Thank you MVCS Administration, Educators and Staff!
If we bought travel insurance for sr trip, should we go after them ourselves?
It is a great comfort knowing MVCS is doing such a good job of supporting my child, while I am stuck on the other side of the world. THANK YOU!
Many of us have had to take significant pay cuts or have been furloughed. Will you consider taking reductions too, and try to help in that way with fees?
Are teachers working from home? In what ways can we bless them?
how can students get their pieces of art work which are currently on display at school?
my senior is asking
office hours are 8:30am for all but one of my student’s course. Can office hours NOT be set for 8:30 (these are teenagers). What about afternoon office hours?
I would want it as an option to in class learning
Alex & Fernanda Reyes
thank you so much for connecting with our kids, for taking the time and just be available. The yoga class is awesome! The transition to online was really smooth.
will we get refunded for spring sport fee?
thank you all MVCS staff! it is nice that the kids didn’t lose any class time like most of the public schools did
can you cover anything about the SAT’s
Have you confirmed that spring sports will still count for PE credits? I know that track has been doing zoom "practices" with the kids.
I will tell Morgan that about art work - thanks
Thank you, Kara! Agree.
Schedules help reduce stress and anxiety. Keep them up and active.

didn’t think about this to ask earlier so it may be too late, but what happened to the foreign students, were they able to go home or do any of them need accommodation here
Thank you, Pauline. All have been reunited with their families in their home countries—all safe and sound.
I signed in late; I apologize if this question has already been addressed— What about summer class? AP exam?
I have been so impressed with our teachers and this transition. Listening to several of the teachers lecture (since we are at home!) :) has been quite impressive! Mrs. Tarr, Mrs. West and Ms Hyde have been rockin their lecutes!
how’s the football field going? it would be a very nice thing to look forward to being completed
What will be the plan for yearbook distribution and an idea for the students, is there a way to do a virtual yearbook sign page for the students friends to sign their books. I know this is something my senior is upset about not being able to do especially with his friends he has had there since 6th grade.
Thanks, Jodi. I will pass that on!
Dear Mitch, Nikki, Susie, Carissa, and all MVCS, Thank you for being bold and courageous to carry the weight of unusual time in our history. MVCS is a beacon of light. Thank you that you pray and discover a new way depending on God.
If the shelter in place is lifted at the end of April, can we please find ways for students to be together on campus, even perhaps with some teachers
Thank you All. We continue to pray for you. Great job during this unusual time
Thank you, Julie— truly appreciate your words of affirmation.
