VMMS Weekly Newsletter

September 13

Good evening Viper families,

This week we have a minimum day for staff development on Wednesday, September 15th. All students will be dismissed at 11:30 am on Wednesday. Please plan ahead for transportation so all students are picked up on time.

Parents - please remember our supervised Pick-Up and Drop-Off location is on Eucalyptus Avenue next to our field. Please do not use the staff parking lot on Civic Center Drive for student pick-up and drop-off, and do not park in any local business parking lots. Drivers who park unsafely or illegally may be ticketed or may be towed. Thank you for respecting our neighbors and keeping everyone safe.

All VMMS students are invited to join the after school STEM Maker Club at Vista Magnet. Join college students from CSUSM to participate in design-based, do-it-yourself STEM projects. The STEM Maker Club meets in the VMMS Library on Thursdays from 3:15-4:45 pm starting this Thursday, September 16th. A permission slip is required and space is limited, so please turn in your signed permission slips to the front office by Tuesday, September 14th.

Vista Magnet and Vista Community Clinic are hosting a free COVID vaccination event on Saturday, September 18th. Come to the VMMS gym from 9:00 am - 11:30 am or 12:30 - 3:00 pm on September 18th for free COVID vaccination for everyone 12 years and older. We encourage COVID vaccination for every VMMS student who is eligible. Everyone can also get free masks and safety materials. Please see this flyer for full information: Vaccination Clinic at VMMS

Last week we had zero individuals at our school who tested positive for COVID-19. Staff members and students who may have come into close contact with the individual(s) have already received a separate communication from school staff and San Diego County Public Health. Students who are home in quarantine or due to a COVID related situation should refer to our Student Quarantine Instructions to stay up to date with their classwork. You may also check the VUSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard at any time for information on VMMS and all VUSD schools.

Thank you and have a great evening,

Vista Magnet Middle School
