Welcome to The Home of The Trojans
Class of 2020 Information from Mr. Rojas
*Strongly Recommended* Chromebook Pickup & Exchange for 9th, 10th, & 11th Grade Students
We are extremely proud of you and your families' commitment to engage in learning during this challenging season of COVID-19. Thank you for doing the best that you can under the circumstances. To support you further, we have decided to accelerate our 1 to 1 Chromebook Program so that you can have a device of your own until you complete your learning journey at Milpitas High School.
This Wednesday and Thursday, we will be distributing Chromebooks for our current students in grades 9, 10, & 11. Below is the schedule:
Wednesday, April 8th, 2020
- 9th grade - Last Name A to M - 2:00pm to 2:30pm
- 9th grade - Last Name N to Z - 2:30pm to 3:00pm
- 10th grade - Last Name A to M - 3:00pm to 3:30pm

For families with students in multiple grades, please come at either pickup window. We also recognize there may be class during the above times. If so, please come during "other" time on Thursday. These Chromebooks will be checked out to our students for the duration of their high school years and we expect our students to take care of their Chromebook. Below are some of the reasons why we strongly recommended that your student(s) pick up their Chromebook now instead of waiting until the beginning of next school year (2020-2021):
MUSD extends flexible learning through the remainder of the 2019-20 school year
Dear MUSD Families and Team Members,
As our community, our county, and our country battle this coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Milpitas Unified School District will extend its EducatEverywhere flexible learning program through the remainder of the 2019-20 school term. We will maximize our efforts to enhance MUSD Educate Everywhere, our flexible learning model for all students, while also furthering the collective effort to flatten the curve and slow the spread of this virus. We know our teachers, support staff, site leaders, and the entire MUSD team are up for this challenge.
Please be clear that while our campuses are physically closed, school remains in session through distance learning. Our educators continue to develop new, creative ways to deliver lessons, assignments, projects, virtual field trips, and other in-home activities. Our Spring Break will remain for the week of April 13-17 with meal service provided for students. Along with our Coronavirus web page with the latest COVID-19 messaging, we also designed a new Parent & Student Resource web page for easier access to essential information for our families.
For our Class of 2020, Milpitas HS Principal Francis Rojas’ message addresses grades and high school transcripts, graduation ceremony and senior activities. We will have graduations for all of our MUSD seniors and adult students in some capacity as we are determined to find a way to celebrate this milestone in our learners’ pathways to their future careers. More information on our programs during the Shelter in Place can be viewed with these links:
We understand this can be a difficult time for everyone, so we’d like to also share some resources to nurture Social-Emotional Wellness. Please be safe, take care of yourself and your loved ones, and know WE will make it through this challenging time Together as One. WE are MUSD Family and Community.
In unity, Office of the Superintendent

Governor waives state testing requirement for 2019-20
With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic forcing school closures throughout the state and across the country, Governor Gavin Newsom issued an executive order today suspending the state testing requirement for 2019-20.
The executive order states: “It is hereby ordered that Education Code section 6064 (a), requiring that all pupils be administered academic assessments in mathematics, English language arts, and science, as provided for in Education Code section 60640, is waived for the 2019-20 school year for all schools in the state for which the United States Department of Education approves, based on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on students and school communities throughout California, a federal waiver of requirements to administer those academic assessments.”
This news allows us to focus on providing our students with the best learning opportunities we can within our MUSD Educate Everywhere program.
