Happy Summer Menlo Park!

Dear Menlo Park families,

Happy summer! I hope everyone has a great summer break and has the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. We are excited and optimistic for what the new school year will bring. Some of our goals are to focus on increasing student engagement, implement our new math adoption, continue our work with restorative practices to support student relationships and behavior, and ensure that kids get what they need and deserve everyday. We look forward to continuing our partnership with families and community members to reach our goals. 

Below is information as we gear up for a fantastic 23-24 school year.

Staff Return

Monday, August 28, 2023

The first week of school for students (September 6th-8th): 

This fall, we will welcome our families back with gradual entry similar to last year. Menlo Park will be split into three groups based on last name/household. Students will attend one of the three days: Wednesday September 6th, Thursday September 7th, or Friday September 8th. These will be typical school days, 9:00am to 3:30pm. There will not be a late start Wednesday September 10th. Your students will receive a letter in August with their assigned day to come that week (only one day!) and their assigned teacher. All students will then come together beginning Monday, September 11th. Please feel free to walk your child to class on their first day to meet the teacher and see the classroom. 


You can register by either coming in for the summer office hours (above) or register online

Bus Information

Each student will need to register for the bus using a google form, which can be found on the Bus Registration Webpage

Students will receive bus passes in mid-October to attach to their backpacks. You can check your student’s bus route using the Versitrans system. The username is their Student ID#, and the password is their Birthday.

Class Lists

Class lists will be posted outside the office on Friday, September 1st.
