: I hear that Robinson Elementary is closing this year?
: We have actually heard this question several times, and we have NO IDEA who started this rumor. The short answer is ... NO!!! We have not even had a single conversation about Robinson or any other MBUSD school closing. Please do what you can to quash this rumor. Go Riptides!!!

: I hear that a schedule change for MBMS is under consideration. If that’s the case, when is it likely to take effect?
: The MBMS faculty has begun discussing possible schedule changes that could be submitted for approval. The Board has not been involved in this conversation to this point. There is no single schedule under consideration, but some of the ideas under consideration are ones that have been discussed in the Board’s quest for improved social emotional wellness for our students, including longer class periods, some form of a block schedule, advisory or student support alternative, moving the before-school “zero period” to an after-school period, maintaining a seven-period schedule, and moving back to a six-period schedule. The earliest the Board would begin discussing possible schedule changes for MBMS would be spring of 2019, but it would be challenging to implement a significant schedule change prior to the 2020-21 school year. If this came to the Board, it would be something that would be discussed at several meetings, with multiple opportunities for stakeholder input, before being decided upon.
