We are excited to announce that the Board has approved Matsumoto's Kindergarten Expansion. We will be renovating Rooms 4 and 5 to expand the classrooms to meet school compliance and also to add a new Kindergarten playground, tables, and awning structure. From now until May 15th, our school will be under construction. Since the fence area is tight between Room 7-12, we ask that parents wait at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot for students to exit. Please ask your child to meet you at the top of the stairs in the front parking lot or a different location of the school. If you need to walk down the stairs to find your child, please wait until foot traffic has lessen. Thank you in advance for your patience as we get this project underway.

Attention All Grade 3-8 Parents! Student CAASPP Score Reports will now be accessed electronically through the Parent Portal on our student information system. ● To access reports, sign in at . If parents have not yet created an account, a unique access ID and password will be sent with the child's report card. ● Student Score Reports are being made accessible to families as soon as student exams have been scored by the State. This means that some students may already have access to their 2019 test results in their Parent Portal while others may not. Tests are scored and released in batches and the process will be finalized over several weeks. The State does not notify us of each release. ● Parents should contact the Karen Wevers in the Instruction Department ( or 408-270-6827) if they are unable to access their child's report, have any additional questions or need technology assistance.
