Dear Mattos Community,

Our entire team is excited to welcome students back to Mattos when school begins on Wednesday, August 18, 2021. I am very glad we will be returning to in person teaching and learning and I’m anticipating another successful year with our caring students, staff and community. I know parents and students may have questions about schedules and supplies and these can be easily answered by referring to our website at .


As always students are expected to attend on time daily arriving by 8:15 a.m. for our 8:25 start time. The playground  will not be open for morning play and designated line up areas will be in place for students to wait quietly for their teacher to let them in. We will expect everyone to screen their child at home including an at home temperature check prior to coming to school. By bringing your child to school you are assuring us that they are in good health. The Daily COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire can be on our website under “Helpful Links”. It will direct you to a Daily-COVID-19-Screening-Questions.pdf and will give you clear directions on screening your child. Please note you do not need to print this out and turn it in as our expectation is that all community members will utilize the honor system.

 All people are also expected to wear masks on campus and maintain social distancing. We are requesting that parents send students to school with a reusable water bottle filled with only water so students can stay hydrated. Thank you in advance for adhering to these important safety procedures as the health and safety of all is our top priority.

This year all Kindergarten classes are AM classes  and as always our first week of school for students K-5 follows a short day schedule. Please plan accordingly.

Everyone should have already created an Infinite Campus Parent Portal account and filled out MAZE Day forms for student enrollment. If you have not done so please go to The Mattos School website at  and click on Maze Day Forms where comprehensive directions are given. If you have difficulty registering please contact our wonderful new Mattos secretary Jennifer Ochoa at : 510-793-1359 Ext 65100 or at  Jennifer will be happy to help you or if needed will set up a time for you to come in during our in-person Maze Day on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 from 8am to noon in the Mattos Multiuse Room. Please be aware that only those parents that still need help signing up online should make an appointment with Ms. Ochoa to get help in person on Wednesday. Everything that can be done online without person to person contact should be done.

Please be aware that the first three days of school will be minimum days. August 18th, 19th and 20th will be as follows: 


Kindergarten will have regular instruction from 08:25 am to 11:45 am.

First grade through Fifth grade will have instruction from 08:25 am to 1:25 pm


While we had expected to have class placements available through the Parent Portal on Wednesday, August 11, 2021 due to some recent changes, placements may not be finalized until Friday, August 13th. Thank you for your understanding and patience and welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. I look forward to working with all of you.
