Good evening Viper families,

Good evening Viper families,

Daylight savings time began today, Sunday, March 13th. Please remember to set your clocks forward one hour.

This week we have minimum days for Student-Led Conferences on Wednesday, March 16th and Thursday, March 17th. Students will be dismissed at 11:30 am on both Wednesday and Thursday, and all families have a conference with your student’s Advisory teacher on either Wednesday or Thursday. If you have not yet scheduled your Student-Led Conference, please contact your Advisory teacher as soon as possible.

Please be aware that CDPH mask-wearing requirements at schools have changed. Starting tomorrow, Monday, March 14th, masks will no longer be “required” indoors, instead they will be “strongly recommended.” Please see the VUSD Community Update 2/28/22 for full details.

While this change may be welcome news for some students, staff, and families, others could be uncomfortable or have concerns about removing their masks indoors. All students and staff continue to have the choice of wearing their masks indoors and outdoors. We expect all members of our school community to respect each individual student and staff choice.

Looking ahead, Spring Picture and 8th Grade Promotion Picture Day is coming up on Wednesday, March 23rd. All students will take their picture that day, look for a picture order form coming home with your students soon.


Last week we had 0 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. Students who are absent due to a COVID related situation should refer to our Student Quarantine Instructions to stay up to date with their classwork.


COVID testing sites are available at a variety of locations in our school district. Please see these flyers for more information: Testing Centers - English

We encourage everyone who is eligible to get the COVID vaccination, which is available free at the Vista Innovation Center every weekday. Please see these flyers for more information:
