Return to Campus Updates

03-24-2021 update

Los Angeles County currently remains in the Red Tier of California's color-coded county tier system. This week marked the opening of our campus and the transition to hybrid learning. It was with great enthusiasm that we welcomed the first stable group of students on Monday and Tuesday. The second stable group will attend classes on campus tomorrow and Friday. While this experience is new for us all, we are discovering the processes which work best, and have identified a couple of areas in which the students will need to be more diligent. The students are becoming more accustomed to using the SchoolPass app, and it is important for them to fill out the daily health screening prior to arriving on campus. 
Parents, please help us remind your students about following physical distancing protocols - especially at break and lunch times. If you need to change your student's stable group, in order to switch the days he/she comes to campus, you must contact the Academic Office* with your request by Wednesday the week prior to the requested schedule change. 
Next week we only have school on three days, Monday through Wednesday, March 29-31. Please consult your school calendar in myMHS for the schedule. When school resumes after Easter break on April 12th, we will continue with hybrid learning, so we ask that families continue to practice all health protocols while away on break in order to minimize the spread of Covid-19.  
We recognize that during Easter break, each family has to make their own choice about the manner in which they celebrate and, for some, travel may be involved. For that reason, if your student currently participates in any on-campus activities, we ask that you ensure that your student has been safe before sending him/her to campus, and communicate to us any health concerns you may have. If your student has tested positive for Covid-19 or has been exposed to someone who tested positive, please keep your student quarantined until cleared, and notify Maranatha's Covid Exposure Management Team by email at The information you provide will remain confidential.
Guests who are attending one of the performances of Bye Bye Birdie in our drive-in movie theater this weekend are reminded to follow all health protocols and instructions, including remaining in their vehicles, and wearing a mask when speaking to people outside of their vehicle. We also ask guests not to honk their horns or make excessive noise. Thank you for helping us be respectful neighbors.
Lastly, parents of athletes should be aware that there are spectator protocols for each sport and are asked to contact their student's coach for details regarding those rules.  
We look forward to celebrating the resurrection of Christ our Savior this Easter, and hope that the break from school affords you and your family time to rest and reconnect.
