School Cleanliness

Over the past three weeks, building experts have assessed every VUSD school site to determine the level of fire related cleaning necessary at each site. Criterion Environmental (our industrial hygienist) has worked with ServiceMaster Recovery Management (SRM) to formulate the scope of repairs/cleaning needed at each site. SRM, in conjunction with assistance from the VUSD Facilities Department has cleaned each site based on the determined scope. Criterion Environment has tested the air quality at each site to confirm it is safe.


Rain is expected this week. Please remember:

  • Stay on walking paths at all times.

  • Do not walk on grass or mud.

  • Spend nutrition/lunch indoors - cafeteria, covered areas, open classrooms.

  • Wipe feet before entering the classrooms.

  • Don’t play with water or push people.

  • Enjoy the awesome rain and stay dry!
