Mid-Pen is excited to welcome back all students and staffulty (faculty and staff) for in-person learning in the 2021-2022 academic year. 

We are still in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. The Delta variant is surging among the unvaccinated population and also impacting vaccinated individuals. That said, COVID-19 vaccines and other mitigation efforts have enabled us to return to a new "normal."  

Using the Pandemic Recovery Framework provided by the San Mateo County Office of Education and following all guidelines from the county, state, and Centers for Disease Control, Mid-Pen has developed a Safe Return to School plan and an updated Community Agreement to promote the health and safety of our school and neighboring communities.

We are dedicated to maintaining in-person learning and avoiding the disruption of our students' education.

Please carefully review the Safe Return to School plan that follows and our Community Agreement. Parents, guardians, students, and staffulty will be asked to acknowledge their receipt and acceptance of the Safe Return to School plan and Community Agreement. All of us here at Mid-Pen will be accountable for following the guidelines.

These documents will be updated upon further guidance from our local, state, and federal agencies.
