It is critically important that the Montebello Unified School District is in clear and constant communication with our parents and students to ensure that they know exactly what our plans and goals are at every step of the process. That is why we are pleased to announce several new ways to share your thoughts with us:


  • Quarterly tele-town hall forums where every parent and student has the opportunity to hear from District administrators and ask them questions directly.
  • Enhanced website that will offer more tools for parents, students and teacher to connect.
  • A robust social media platform that will served as an outlet to share the latest events and messages directly from the school district.
