Honored to welcome our WVUSD Superintendent Dr. Robert Taylor and Assistant Superintendent Ms. Diane Perez to campus!

Welcome to Week Two!

Hello Brahma Parents & Guardians,


We hope the first week of school went well. If you are having difficulty with any component of Distance Learning, please let us know. We understand not everyone's experience was without difficulty, but we are committed to providing the best support possible and welcome the feedback.


AERIES PHONE APP

At this time, the Aeries Portal Phone App is NOT working properly and is still connected to Summer School. Apparently, this is a problem that other school districts are also experiencing with the app. The company that provides the product is working to correct the problem. Until then, please go to the web page for fall semester grades.


SPAM EMAIL

Monday, August 17 between 10 AM and 11 AM, our students received unsolicited email messages sent to their school accounts. The original message was unintentionally sent when school district technicians reconfigured one of our online services. The server sent a message to an email group that contained all student addresses. Following that, some students sent a reply to that email group, causing all of our students to receive unwanted messages. That email group has been disabled. We are sorry for the distraction that it caused to Monday's (8/17) instruction.


We appreciate your patience and I will keep you posted on these technology situations.


Best Regards,


Reuben Jones

Principal
