DETAILS: The MVHS Cafetorium Project is one of the latest facilities improvements in EMUHSD, supported by a round of funding from the Measure HS Bond, totaling $190 million, approved by the EMUHSD Board of Trustees in late 2018. The funds have supported a sweeping modernization program that ensures every campus receives several facilities improvements.

Local dignitaries, school officials, students and community members will be present for the ribbon-cutting, which will include a welcome reception with honorary speeches and food prepared by the school’s Culinary Arts program.

Following the reception, guests will be invited into the new facility to enjoy a student showcase.
