Mustang News

  • What’s good, Olinda families? Here are your updates for the week of May 23rd through the 27th- a weekly phone call that has along with it an email, a text message, a website update, a class dojo message, and even a facebook post. Find the source that works best for you so that you don’t miss any news.


    Firstly- we do have school on May 27th! On the original district calendar, the 27th was set as a reserve day and folks- we used it. So we will see you for a regular day on Friday May 27th. Please check the bus routes for those that use them- as AC transit’s school bus service may not be available.


    Weekly covid-19 testing is scheduled through LSA by using the website. Your account is not set up until you receive a confirmation of your booked appointment in the form of an email with a qr code and reference number. When students are exposed, testing is mandatory on day five from exposure in order to be able to stay in school. Avoid having your student sent home or a mad scramble to sign them up before the testers leave for the day. Head to and book your May 25 appointment today.


    Monday morning breakfast club meets starting at 8 am in the MPR! TK and K class begins at 8:30 am, 1st through 6th at 9 am. 


    Check now for any library books that may be hiding under a bed, in the back of the car, an old backpack, a desk at home- it’s time to find them and turn them in soon. 


    Thank you to our parent volunteers who helped us run the Jr Giants program- and each student will get a wiffle style bat and ball to keep!


    Speaking of parent volunteers- we need folks every day! Pick up, drop off, and lunch time daily would greatly benefit from you being  there. 


    June and the end of school is just around the corner- we are planning a site wide barbeque with a food truck sent out by the school district. Any vegetarian and vegan students should put their names forward now so that we can have meals ready. Any parents who can spare time on the day- we can not pull this off without you. Literally- the event could be canceled without extra hands on deck to prepare and pass out foods. Get your most dapper grilling aprons pressed and ready- June 2nd is the day!


    June 3rd the PTA will have a block party style event! See their website for details.


    Be good, and be good at it.

  • 5/26/22 Safety Message from Dr. Hurst

    This morning, students and staff at one of our schools, Grant Elementary in Richmond, had to briefly shelter-in-place because gunshots were fired in the area. Everyone is safe: no students, staff or families were harmed and the school was not targeted. We have been in contact with the Richmond Police Department about the incident.

  • Let’s finish the year strong

    We know it has been a long year as we have transitioned to in-person instruction after two years of distance learning, and our students and staff are eager for the summer break. I’d like to encourage everyone in our school communities to finish the year strong and on a high note.

  • Message from the Superintendent: Mask Update 05/24/22

    As we reach the last few weeks of the school year, I’d like to share an update with you about our mask policy. We will continue to follow the guidance from the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and strongly recommend all students and staff wear a mask while at school or work. Wearing a mask is part of the district’s COVID-19 mitigation strategy, and masks should be made available in every WCCUSD classroom.
