Kinder students must turn 5 before September 1, in order to be enrolled into Kindergarten.

T/K students must turn 5 between September 2 and March 1, in order to be enrolled into an MPUSD T/K program.

It is the intent to offer TK at all school sites based on enrollment projections.  If enrollment projections do not reach a certain threshold at each school site, your child will be registered at a site closest to your residency.

All immunizations must be current including the 5 year immunizations.   All incoming Kindergarten physicals must be dated after February 5, 2016 to meet first grade admittance guidelines.

An Oral Health Assessment is also required.

message from the principal.jpg



Olson School is located on the northern border in the city of Marina. Surrounded by pastures and an established neighborhood, Olson is less than a mile from the Pacific Ocean. A part of Monterey Peninsula Unified School District's Marina Learning Community, we join the Seaside and Monterey Learning Communities in providing a standards based education program.

Every day at Olson School, wonderful partnerships of students, staff, community volunteers and parents provide an outstanding, well-rounded, education for all students. Academic and behavior expectations are high, yet achievable. The school vision is to be a place where adults assist students to be committed to learning, exploring and developing in responsible citizens who celebrate and accept all culture. 


Our current newsletter, with additional upcoming events, can be viewed by clicking the Newsletter tab at the top of this page.

Olson Orcas are Organized, Respectful, Caring, Always Responsible and Safe.

August 07, 2017 District Office Message

Parents and Guardians,

This summer, the district's Facilities, Maintenance and Operations department discontinued the use of Round Up and Truflon Ester for weed abatement. A new product called Natural Horticultural Vinegar that does not contain glyphosate is now being used. 

Please note that our 2017-18 yellow Emergency Cards were printed in June 2017 prior to the discontinued use of Round Up, Truflon Ester, and/or glyphosate products this summer. On the back side of the yellow Emergency Card parents were asked to check the line "I understand that the herbicide "Round Up Pro" or "Truflon Ester" may be applied on school grounds." This statement no longer applies.

This message is informational in nature. Should you have questions, feel free to contact our Facilities, Maintenance and Operations team at 392.3912.

Attendance Image.jpg

Regular attendance is vital to your child's success. Please make every effort to send your child to school every day and on time. 

Olson has a dedicated staff who teach "bell to bell", making every minute count. When you pull your child out of class early, it disrupts his/her learning and interrupts the instruction in the classroom. 

Our goal is for every Olson Orca to graduate from high school and be career or college ready . Attendance counts!

All visitors and parent volunteers must sign in at the office when coming onto the school site.  Additionally, while on campus you must wear a visitors badge.

(Parents only need to check in during the school day, not at pick up time.)
