October PSAT Update
 
Mountain View HS will NOT be giving the PSAT in October 2020, since it is an "in-seat" test.
Since MVHS is still 100% distance learning, we did not administer the PSAT/NMSQT on October 14th. The College Board is aware that many schools in the nation are not able to administer the exam as there are no remote options available. Tuesday, January 26 has been announced by the College Board as an alternate date, provided the exam can be safely administered in an in-person setting by then. As COVID conditions and State and Health Department directions are changing in response to the rate of infection and other related factors, it is important that parents and students monitor announcements on our website.

Wellness

School-based Mental Health and Wellness 

Emotional wellness helps determine our capacity to handle stress, relate to others and make good choices. At MVLA, wellness is a way of seeing and making decisions that connect physical health, mental health, and learning. Wellness works best in a culture of kindness and respect in which we watch out for each other. There is a saying that it takes a village - and we are the village.  Each person associated with MVLA plays a role in student wellness and makes a difference in each other’s emotional safety and wellbeing.
Mental health promotion, school infrastructure, and mental health intervention services support the mental, behavioral, and social-emotional health of students and further students academic achievement.  Students’ and parents’ trust, connection, and participation in the school setting is pivotal to student mental health and wellbeing.
We share and update information and online resources to support our students and each other towards emotional wellness on our dedicated webpage, found under the "Education" resources.
For more information, visit our Mental Health and Wellness website.
