Good Evening Mariposa Families,
Due to current information and working in collaboration with County partners, all Mariposa County Unified School District (MCUSD) school sites will observe a 2-hour delay, tomorrow, Wednesday, November 9, 2022, to allow for anticipated road conditions to resolve and allow for the safe travel of students and staff.
This decision has been made out of an abundance of caution and concern for our community and means buses will be running 2-hours later, and classes will begin 2 hours later. ​
