Current ISM Status

  • All ISM students and staff resumed in-person instruction on our Manzanita campus on August 4, 2021.
  • To maximize safety, ISM has elected to implement the following policies and procedures effective with the start of the 2021-2022 school year:
    • To reduce the overall number of individuals sharing the space, only students, staff, and others conducting official business (e.g. district employees, contractors) may enter the school gates during school hours.
      • Parents and guardians of current kindergarteners may enter their designated gate to walk their kindergarten children to the front doors of the kindergarten pod.
      • Other p​​​​​arents and guardians are not allowed on campus at this time.
    • ​​​​​​​To minimize exposure to airborne viral droplets and aerosols, everyone on campus must wear a mask indoors and outdoors during school hours, except when doing their best to maintain 3-6 feet of distance from others while eating or drinking. 
    • To minimize COVID-19 infection both at school and at home...
      • ISM employees must be fully vaccinated or undergo twice-weekly COVID-19 testing. 
      • ISM strongly encourages all school community members to become fully vaccinated if eligible. ​​​​​​​

ISM School Lunch Information

Free meals for children 18 and under are no longer available at neighborhood schools, as they were this past spring and summer, unless your child is enrolled in that school.

All ISM families, including those who qualify for Free and Reduced Price Meals, may now order one meal kit per week, per student. Parents/guardians or students can pick up the kits each Tuesday in front of the MUR between 11:30am and 1:30pm.

Free and Reduced Price Meals Application [English]    [Español]

For the health and safety of our staff and community, during pickup all parents/guardians and students must:

  • Wear a mask properly placed over mouth and nose at all times.
  • Approach the campus by walking up the concrete ramp, and leave down the sidewalk and stairs.
  • Maintain 6 feet distance from ISM staff and other family groups at all times.
  • Place a printed Boonli receipt or hand-written copy of each student's name, grade, and Boonli order number on the table then step back. A staff member will verify the meal selections, name, and grade level of each student.
  • Pick up the pre-bagged, selected meals from the table once a staff member has placed them there and stepped back.
