CDPH and COVID-19 UPDATES

We are happy to announce that we are in full compliance with the new California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and COVID-19 guidelines. One hundred percent of our classic classrooms have successfully social distanced students with 4 feet or more, with many classes having 6 feet or more of distance between students. This of course is in addition to all the health and safety mitigation measures we already have in place, like having stable groups, adding air purifiers in all classrooms, putting plastic shields on all desks, windows and doors remain open all day, and all students and staff wear masks all day, except when eating. You can find the latest information on our website under COVID SAFETY PLAN, please click here https://www.bh.vistausd.org/.


SCHOOL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT CARD (SARC)

Also, our 2019 School Accountability Report Card (SARC) is now available on the district website. Please click here https://www.vistausd.org/our_schools and it is also published on the California Department of Education (CDE) website under Find a SARC, click here https://www.sarconline.org/.

MATH TIP OF THE WEEK- USING TOUCH POINTS

You asked and we heard you! You said you wanted help with math concepts so that you can help your child at home. Here is the first one. If your child is still using his or her fingers to count, touch math points can help. After your child memorizes the touch points, s/he will become faster with her/his computations and eventually it will become a mental strategy. Have fun and be patient. The following short video explains touch points for ADDITION. I will add a video for subtraction next week.
