Mt Diablo Elementary School

  • Dear Mt. Diablo Unified School District Families:


    All schools in Mt. Diablo Unified will be closed tomorrow, Friday, November 16, 2018, due to air quality conditions. The forecasted air quality for tomorrow is projected to be at a more hazardous level; we also are concerned with the cumulative effect of poor air quality.  


    We thank you and your families for your patience during what has been a very difficult time for our Northern California communities, and wish you a restful Thanksgiving.

    From our PFC: Help our 5th graders go to camp! Outdoor Education is a four-day, offsite field trip that is planned each year for 5th graders. The camp teaches a hands-on science curriculum and social skills, and provides a taste of the responsibility and independence students will need when they advance to middle school. Outdoor education is a fun, enriching experience that kids look forward to, and that they will never forget!
