Our Missing Student Found!!

To all MBUSD Parents and Employees:

I am happy to report that Leah Kritzer has been found in San Diego.   I want to thank MBPD for their diligence, and all of you for your passionate desire to keep our students safe.   I can tell you that your efforts spread this message far and wide.  So many of you made efforts to get the word out, and there were celebrities with large Twitter followings who did the same.  It all matters.  

I heard from Leah's mother and she is so happy, and she sends her thanks to all of you as well.  Today, we are a proverbial village, and we have all chipped in to help raise a child.  

Thank you again, and may we all go to bed tonight knowing that there are many who care for our children.

Thank you again,

Mike Matthews

MBUSD Superintendent of Schools
