OktoReopen Health Screener

The screener needs to be completed first thing in the morning BEFORE children come on campus. Since it is so important for everyone's safety on campus.

Within the OK to reopen platform, parents can adjust the settings to receive text or email only. Additionally, questions can be answered for more than one child within the same window, using the drop-down menu at the top right. It is not necessary to download an OKtoReopen app. Please click here for Pro Tips.


Reporting an Absence

School starts at 8:15am and attendance will be taken during class check-in.  If your child is absent, please call the attendance line at 650-526-3520 x. 2 by 8:30am or email [email protected]. If we do not know the reason for the absence, your child will be marked unexcused.  If you are late or you have a dentist or doctor’s appointment during class time, please call Mrs. Dolan.

Apply at EzSchool Meals to help MVWSD receive additional funding to support students who are in need, and may help your family. This Free and Reduced Price Meals benefit is not limited to meals only. If your child is eligible for free and/or reduced-price meals, your family could get medical benefits, housing benefits, utilities benefits and more. Students who qualify for free and/or reduced-price meals may be eligible for P-EBT cards. The more applications your school gathers at the start of each school year, the more additional funding it can receive for all kinds of programs that help children at your school. If you are currently out of work, you may qualify and help your school, regardless of your financial situation. Apply at or call your school office.  If you need help, our office staff is available to help you.  Please email Ms. Bea at [email protected]

PTA News

Welcome back from the Landels PTA!

The Landels PTA is excited to have our community back together again on campus for the 2021-2022 school year. We look forward to exploring new ways to build community despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, starting at our first association meeting on Wednesday September 8 at 6pm.

What is the PTA and what does it do?

We are an enthusiastic non-profit group of teachers, staff, parents/guardians, Landels alumni, extended family, and community members who strive to build up and support each and every pillar of our school community.  We help organize room parents, host community building events, and support our classrooms with classroom supplies, field trips, movie nights, ice cream parties, assemblies, and more. We kicked off the year by welcoming back our teachers and staff with coffee, snacks, and lunch. 

Sounds awesome, sign me up!

· Join the PTA online via Totem:

Association Meetings

We welcome you to join us for our virtual association meetings at 6pm the 2nd Wednesday of every month for the duration of the school year.  We currently have open Officer, Chairperson and Event Lead positions and invite you to reach out if you have a little time to help us out in either a leadership role or to let us know you're available to help out on a smaller scale.  Imagine the impact we could have on our childrens' school year if we all gave just 3 hours?

Visit our website for details and any updates to the meeting schedule.
