MVLA's Educational Services team has created a new Summer Enrichment & Resources webpage to provide students lots of great opportunities and resources for online learning and exploration as we head into the 2020-2021 school year.
These opportunities can be done at your own pace and on your own time - and are not considered summer academic work but purely enrichment.
Explore the webpage, check out the resources, and have a wonderful summer!



We will post information here for MVHS-related event changes and any new procedures as receive information from the District Office.

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.
