Martinez Unified School District celebrates the home languages of each of our students.  We recognize that families may need interpretation services in order to access services and communicate with school district personnel.  We can provide interpretation services when needed.  Please call Jessica Conkle (925-335-5966) should you require interpretation services.


El Distrito escolar unificado de Martínez celebra la variedad de idiomas primarias de nuestros estudiantes.  Reconocemos que algunas familias puedan necesitar servicios de intérprete para tener acceso a los servicios y comunicarse con personal del distrito escolar. Podemos proveer servicios de intérprete cuando sea necesario.  Favor de comunicarse con Jessica Conkle (925-335-5966) si requiere servicios de intérprete.

CA Physical Education Requirement Accountability

Students in grades 1-5, at all four elementary schools in the Martinez Unified School District, actively engage in the California requirement of 200 minutes of Physical Education every 10 days.  In order to assure compliance with this legal requirement, each site has established “Prep C” protocols for those grade levels that may not reach the 200 minute requirements due to minimum days, teacher prep, and / or assemblies.  These established practices of running laps, dance & movement, and cardio-conditioning outside of the PE class are documented and verified by the site administration on a monthly basis.

Good school attendance equals a good reader!

Research shows that students who are chronically absent in Kindergarten and first grade are far less likely to read proficiently by 3rd grade. 


This holiday season, the best gift you can give your child is a good education. And the best place to get that education is in school. Every day. On time.  


Give your child the gift of attendance and help build a habit of attendance.


Go With The Flow  To promote safety   reduce congestion, please approach JME from the east of campus.  Howe Rd. or Palm Ave.  Use the coned drive-through lane for drop-off and pick-up.
