Guide to Communications


Mariposa Upper Elementary has established a number of channels and resources to facilitate communication around school related updates, initiatives, programs, and activities. Follow us on Facebook !



Our website is a one-stop resource for up-to-date school-related information, including staff and teaching contact details, school happenings and events, and PTA-sponsored initiatives. Bookmark our school website:



The Mariposa Newsletter,  the Monarch Memo, will be published every Sunday. It highlights timely school-wide news as well as San Carlos School District, San Carlos Educational Foundation, PTA, and community news that is relevant to the Mariposa school population. As part of the Mariposa parent community, you will automatically receive this weekly newsletter every Sunday to the email address you provided via InfoSnap.



Our school-wide directory is created by the TL/MPA School PTA to make it easy for families to contact one another. More detailed information will be available in the Monarch Memo as the PTA moves closer to production and distribution.



Classroom parents represent each class and play an important role in supporting individual classes and their respective teachers, helping to facilitate class-related events and activities. Classroom parents help with managing parent contributions, purchasing teacher gifts, collating and sharing PTA and SCEF updates, and assisting teachers with class events, parties, and special projects.



In the event of a significant emergency, parents will receive a phone call and email from our emergency broadcast system. Parents also may opt-in to receive a text message during the annual InfoSnap registration process. Please do not try to call the school office during an emergency.
