Welcome Back Message from the Principal
Welcome back to Mission Valley School! My name is Jim Hough (pronounced huff) and I will be the interim principal until a new site administrator is hired to replace Mrs. Mapelli who is now the principal at Forest Park. I am a retired Fremont Unified employee having worked the final 12 years of my career as principal at Niles School. Since that time, I have been an interim principal at a number of elementary schools in the district filling in as needed to support students, staff, and parents.

Staff is looking forward to returning to in-person teaching and having an opportunity to work with students and parents. Although returning to school is the “normal” thing to do, we are anticipating that there will be a transition period for some students as they get accustomed to in-person learning. Be assured that your child’s teacher will teach lessons and engage students in activities that are designed to support students in this area. If necessary, teachers will reach out to parents if they notice that your child may require additional support from adults at home/school. As always, working collaboratively with your child’s teacher will benefit your child.

REMEMBER … If you have not yet gone into your parent portal to update the documents for your child(ren) for this school year, please do so ASAP. If you need assistance, please contact:
