Merced Union High School District After School Program Opt-Out Form
Merced Union High School District has enrolled all current MUHSD students in the after school program for the 2020-21 school year. This includes online tutoring services and fun enrichment clubs and activities, which students may utilize for free whenever they like. There is no minimum participation required. These services will first be offered only online due to public health concerns, but we will be providing services on-site once schools are able to reopen. For
advertisement purposes, students may be asked if they will allow the tutor to screenshot them during their virtual meetings, provided that their parents/guardians have authorized MUHSD to take their photos.
