Thinking Maps are Everywhere


It is so important for students to arrive at school on time. When they are tardy or late they miss out on important information to set up their day. Please assist your child in learning the independent skills necessary to get up in the morning, get ready for school, and arrive on time.

Also, just a reminder if for any reason your child does not attend school you need to notify the office by calling (831) 728-6315 or sending a note with your child. You have 3 days to clear an absence before it remains an unexcused absence. If a student receives 3 unexcused absences, the law  requires us to send a letter of truancy to the family. If you have any further questions about absences please call the office directly. Thank you for being a valuable part of the educational team for your child. It takes us all working together! A T.E.A.M. (Together - Everyone - Accomplishes - More)

Health News

          cold n flu season.jpg

When To Keep Your Child At Home:

With cold and flu season upon us soon it is very important to follow these guidelines if you child has been ill.               If your child has had a fever they must stay home until they are fever free, without medications, for 24 hours.  If they have the flu (sore throat, runny nose, deep cough, body aches, rash or vomiting) until they are symptom free for 24 hours. This is to prevent the spread of colds and flu to other students and staff.

Thank You Ms. Cesarello... We love you!

Thank you to Ms. Cesarello for all that you do to support teachers, students and families at MacQuiddy! Your magic unicorns bring so much joy to those around you. You are our Monicorn!


Digital Storytelling Class Celebration! These woman are amazing, resilient women! It was an honor to work with them and help them to tell their stories.
