Good evening Viper families,

Good evening Viper families,

Make-up pictures for the school yearbook and ID cards will be taken this week on Thursday, October 7th. If your child does not have an VMMS ID card, your child will report to the gym to take a picture and get their ID card.

The PTA would like to invite your child to participate in our school site PTA Reflections Contest. Your child can submit an entry in the following categories: dance choreography, film production, literature, photography, visual arts, and music composition. You can find entry forms and contest rules on the school's website. Paper entry forms will also be available at the front office. Entry forms and submissions should be emailed to VMMS2021Reflections@gmail.com no later than October 25th.

VMMS and VCC are hosting a COVID Vaccination Clinic on Saturday, October 8th from 8:30 am to 1:30 pm. Come to the VMMS gym for free COVID vaccination for anyone12 years and older, as well as free masks and safety materials. Please see this flyer for full information.

Vista Magnet is resuming our Ballet Folklorico club for students interested in joining our dance group. The club will meet once each week after school for Ballet Folklorico dance instruction, and performances will be scheduled in the spring. No experience is necessary, and we encourage all interested students to join. Please come to the front office to sign up on our interest list. We will share information about upcoming parent meetings and club meeting dates soon.

Last week we had 4 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 and San Diego County Public Health. Students who are home in quarantine or due to a COVID related situation should refer to our Student Quarantine Instructions to stay up to date with their classwork. You may also check the VUSD COVID-19 Case Dashboard at any time for information on VMMS and all VUSD schools. We encourage everyone who is eligible to get the COVID vaccination, which is now available free at the Vista Innovation Center every weekday. Click here for COVID vaccination clinic information.

Thank you and have a great evening,

Vista Magnet Middle School
