Welcome to MacQuiddy

Please stop by the Main Office and say hello to Tere Hernandez.  Tere is going to be working on attendance while Adeline is going to covering the Main Office duties.  We will all miss Maria Rojas and wish her the best while she is taking a leave.  But, we are in good hands!

Many MacQuiddy students and parents use several of the crosswalks to access the school daily.  Please be aware that four times a day students, parents and staff members are crossing the street and drive accordingly.  The times the crosswalk is heavily used are:

  • 7:30 - 8:00 AM
  • 9:30 - 9:45 AM
  • 12:30 - 12:50 PM
  • 2:20 - 2:45 PM

Again, please help to keep our students, parents and staff members safe.  Thank you!


Wishing a Happy New Year and a warm welcome back to all MacQuiddy parents, students and staff.  The Spring Semester is packed with activities, important meetings and learning opportunities.  Please check the upcoming events for times and dates.    


A big, big thank you to everyone who donated toys to the TOYS FOR TOTS drive.


The TOYS FOR TOTS organization was able to pick up two large boxes filled with toys on December 17.  This is a wonderful opportunity to support our local communities because the 100% of the donations stay in Santa Cruz County.  15,000 toys were distributed!  A big thank you to Student Council for sponsoring this event at MacQuiddy!

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.
