Teachers will be outside to greet students and staff will help new students find their way. Please take those fun first day photos while at home, in order to facilitate a timely dropoff.

COVID Updates & Reminders


Here are the current OUSD practices (based off the OCHCA guidelines)


  • In order to reduce the amount of people on campus, visitors, including parents, will not be allowed on campus. We are so sorry, but this is necessary to keep our students and staff safe and healthy.
  • Drinking fountains will remain off - Water bottles are available in every classroom. Students are encouraged to bring a reusable water bottle to reduce waste.
  • Masks will be required by all staff and students when working together indoors in classrooms/library/hallways.
  • Masks are not required when outside (staff or students).
  • Student desk plexiglass has been removed. If you would like your child to have a desk shield, please contact Mrs. Ybarra or your child's teacher, and we will have one installed.

Is your child's birthday coming soon?

To keep all students safe from potential allergic reactions, Linda Vista does not have food celebrations for birthdays.


A different great way to celebrate your child's birthday:

Birthday Book Club - If you would like to donate a book to the library in your child's name, we would really appreciate the addition to our library.

Lunch

School lunch will be provided free of charge to all students for the 21-22 school year. If your child would like to bring their lunch, they are welcome to do that as well. Parents, please do not bring lunch for your child through the office, as we are working to reduce foot traffic through the office as much as possible. Thank you for your help in keeping students and staff healthy!

Thank you!!

These new benches were donated by our Class of 2019 & Class of 2021. They are beautiful! and a great addition to the front of our school!
