School Closures
Update: The Santa Clara County Public Health Department and the Santa Clara County Office of Education have extended school closures through the end of the school year.  The last day of school for the 2019/2020 school year is June 12, 2020.
At this point in time, we will be closed from March 16 – April 3. Our spring break is April 6 - 10, 2020. The District is monitoring information and coordinating with the Santa Clara County Office of Education and all other school districts in the County of Santa Clara and is following the Orders of local and state health authorities. Currently, all schools are scheduled to open April 13, 2020.


Meals During Closure
The Moreland School District Nutrition Services is providing an opportunity for families to drive through and pick up meals for the children in their families, at selected school sites. Meals will be provided at no cost to all families.

The following schools will provide a lunch for the day and a breakfast for the following day (Anderson will also provide dinners). Meals will be served between 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. Meals will be provided in the parking lot or at the entrance of each participating school. Please stay in your car and meals will be distributed. If you cannot drive to the site you can walk by. Meals will be offered on a “first come, first served” basis.  Families from any Moreland school can access free meals during this period. Meals are available for any preschool age child - 18 years old.

School Meal Pick-up Sites:
Anderson Elementary School: 4000 Rhoda Drive, San Jose, 95117
Moreland Middle School, 4600 Student Lane, San Jose, 95130 (parking lot on the corner of Fallbrook and Student Lane Avenues)

This program will be solely for the pick-up of meals and meals will not be consumed on site. We encourage families to continue to be proactive in reducing the risk of COVID-19 exposure by not congregating at the school site once meals have been distributed, continue to wash hands often, sneeze or cough into a tissue or your elbow, and stay home if sick.


Enrollment Center
Moreland's Enrollment Center is currently closed to the public.  Families should continue to register online for new enrollment and email the required verification documents to enrollment@moreland.orgClick here for more details.


What is the Deadline for Inter-District and Intra-District Transfers
Inter-district and intra-district transfer requests are still due by March 31st.  These can be emailed to; faxed to (408) 874-3690; or mailed to Moreland School District - Enrollment, 4711 Campbell Avenue, San Jose, CA  95130.  Your transfer request must be postmarked by March 31st.

Students new to Moreland requesting an intra-district transfer need to include a copy of the first page of their new student online enrollment application.



Will the School Year be Extended?
No. The Governor’s Executive Order N-26-20 allows school districts to continue to receive uninterrupted funding from the state and the closures will not impact the 180-day requirement of the instructional calendar if the District’s Superintendent certifies that the closure occurred to address COVID-19. Our school year will end on June 12, 2020.



Will Spring Conferences Be Rescheduled?
Spring Conferences have been canceled and will not be rescheduled.  Please reach out to your child’s teacher if you have any specific concerns.



Will Students Still Take State Testing?
Subsequent to the discussion on CDE's webinar, on March 19, 2020, Governor Newsom issued Executive Order N-30-20 waiving, pending federal approval, the Education Code's state-wide testing requirement for the 2019-2020 school year. In making this Order, Governor Newsom cited to "the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and school communities throughout California," and  FAQs Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) March 17, 2020, Revised March 20, 2020 Page 3
noted this "time is stressful enough for students, families and educators without the additional burden of annual testing."
