Good evening Viper families,

Good evening Viper families,

This week we begin the second semester of the 20-21 school year. Students who had Art class in the first semester will now have Spanish class, and students who had Spanish will now have Art. Also, students who have selected a different learning model (Virtual/Classic) for the second semester will have updated class schedules. The new schedules are visible on the Parent Portal and on Canvas, and students will attend all new classes starting Monday, February 1st. If there are any questions or concerns please contact our counselors: https://vmms.vistausd.org/departments/counseling.

This week is also Counselor Appreciation Week at VMMS! We are so lucky to have two outstanding school counselors who provide incredible support for our students and our whole school every day. Students: please take some time to send a thank you message to Mrs. Anderson and Mrs. Carrio this week to show your appreciation for their dedication and care.

This Wednesday, February 3rd is a minimum day for staff development at Vista Magnet. Students will be dismissed from classes at 11:29 am, and will continue asynchronous learning until 1:30 pm. Please see our minimum day schedule for full information: VMMS Learning Schedule 20-21.

Please mark your calendars for our next Materials Pick-Up Days coming next week. On Tuesday, February 9th we will invite our Virtual students to come to campus to pick up materials from your teachers, and on Thursday, February 11th we will invite our Classic students to come pick up materials. We will provide appointment times and a materials list this week, please look for more information soon.

Lastly, please be aware that all California public schools create a School Accountability Report Card (SARC) each year to share detailed and current school information. The Vista Magnet SARC document is available on our district website at https://www.vistausd.org/our_schools, and a hard copy is available upon request at our school office if you are interested.

Thank you and have a great evening,

Vista Magnet Middle School
