Welcome Back to School!
The first day of school is here! So much has been happening on the MME campus. We have been under construction with new stucco, paint and more. Our dedicated, resourceful and talented teachers are busy turning classrooms into welcoming, safe and joyful learning spaces. Mustangs, you are the "why" behind our school and we can hardly wait for you to join us.
School starts 8:30am grades 1-6. Thank you for arriving with plenty of time to get to your room!

DJUSD is committed to our mission of creating optimal conditions and environments for all students to learn. In alignment with our mission, the district continues to promote the education of parents, students, staff and the community regarding the importance of sleep for teens and the factors that affect the quality and duration of teenage sleep. This fall, all junior high school bell times will be adjusted to start school at 8:30 AM, end at 3:30 PM and retain the 7 period format. Students who are co-enrolling in courses at another Junior High School now start at 8:15 AM. The senior high school campuses (Da Vinci Charter and Davis Senior High School) continue to explore options to start senior high schools at or about 8:30 AM and ending at or about 3:30 PM. High school site staff will continue to engage stakeholders and participate in relevant professional development this year. The senior high school adjusted schedule is anticipated for the 2017-18 school year.
Unitrans Buses and Later Start
New Unitrans Bus Line changes have been made to Serve High School and Later Start Times at Junior High Schools.

New Unitrans Bus Line changes have been made to Serve High School and Later Start Times at Junior High Schools.
The former S and T lines have been combined into a new T line, available at the link below. The route provides stops that are relatively close to Harper Junior High (on Alhambra at Atlantis) and Holmes Junior High (on Covell at J). Two trips will run each weekday. On M/Tu/Th/F, the earlier bus will serve the DSHS first period, while the 2nd bus will serve the junior high later start times, as well as providing service to 2nd period starting time at Davis High School. On Wednesdays, the earlier bus does not run, and is replaced with a later bus to serve the later Wednesday start times. In the afternoons, the combined route would run to serve both the 2:30 and 3:30 dismissal times at the junior and senior highs. For former S-line riders, the new routing will provide a faster trip from the eastern portions of South Davis. For the T-line, the routing along Covell will provide service that is within walking distance of those who would like to use the service in the Slide Hill Park / Loyola neighborhoods, as well as Wildhorse.
