Welcome to Morongo Unified School District


September 2014


Welcome back to the 2014-2015 school year!

We are excited to have started our new school year and look forward to an excellent year. Education is truly a partnership between our families, schools and the community. The process of creating a strong partnership involves the investment of time and passion into reaching a mutual goal. Our educational partnership is based upon creating opportunities for our students to reach their potential in a manner that prepares them to embrace future challenges.
The exuberance and spirit that is felt as we start this year must be nurtured and sustained throughout the year. I strongly encourage our students to embrace the opportunities that are available at each of our schools. Working together, the future is as limitless as our beautiful desert skies. The opportunities to learn are endless and I encourage you to "carpe diem," or seize the day as they unfold.


Thank you in advance for taking the time to spend investing in education. The rewards for hard work and opportunity exist for us all. Working together to create students who thrive on learning new skills and knowledge will ensure that they will be prepared for college or careers of the future. Staying an active participant in this process will allow parents, teachers and students to achieve goals that benefit themselves and society.

New Student Information System

Morongo Unified School District changed to a new Student Information System this year.  A Portal for student access has recently opened for students to view their grades, take online assessments, and view attendance.  The Student Portal can be found at https://musd.illuminatehc.com/auth#tabs-student.  The District is close to completing the Parent Portal configuration for parents to view their child’s current grades and attendance.  We expect this to be completed by Monday, October 13th.  The link to the new Parent Portal can be found at https://musd.illuminatehc.com/auth#tabs-parent.  A link to each portal will be available on the MUSD website as well as on each school’s webpage.  The new parent portal will offer more detailed information about your student’s class progress and assignments.


Parents/Guardians should look for a mailed notification with instructions on how to access the Parent Portal within the next week or two.  An additional notification will be sent home with your student.  The District is working through this migration process.  Staff training, program enhancements/ configurations, and product integration continue to be the focus during this transition to this new Student Information System.  We apologize for any inconvenience this change may have caused.
