The Week in Snapshots

Come to PACK Tutoring After School

The PACK after school tutoring program is up and running on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. Mission Vista teachers from several subject areas will be on hand to help any interested students, and 11th and 12th-grade students from our California Scholarship Federation (CSF) club will also be available to assist students. Busing will be available each day for students with a valid bus pass.

This Week's ASB Announcements


Changes to Bus Departure Times

Beginning next week, our Transportation Department will be adjusting morning departure times in an effort to ensure students are on campus on time each day. Effective Tuesday departure times will be as follows:

1A Arcadia Ave @ E Vista Way -- Departure time is 7:00am

1B Behind Vista Magnet Middle School @ Flagpole -- Departure time is 6:55am

1C Melrose Dr. @ Live Oak Rd. -- Departure time is 6:50am

Meal Service Adjustment Starts Next Week

Beginning Monday, our cafeteria will stop serving meals/snacks between 1st and 2nd periods. A number of factors are playing into the need for this adjustment, including staffing challenges and the ability to serve students in a time frame that allows them to get to 2nd period on time.

With that said, all students who want breakfast will be served from 7:15-7:45am (later on Mondays) and lunch will be served at the regularly-scheduled time.

Progress Notices Coming out Next Week

The first progress report of the year will be available next Thursday morning. Progress notices are available in the Aeries portal under "grades". Progress report grades are not permanent and do not go onto a student's transcript.

Students and parents who have specific questions about a particular grade or course are encouraged to reach out directly to the teacher of record.

Report School Safety Concerns Anonymously

MVHS and all schools in Vista Unified have an anonymous tipline (PSST World) which allows any stakeholder to report potential behavior and/or safety concerns on and around campus. Reports are entirely anonymous, and District and site level adminstrators are notified immediately and look into all claims.

Click here to go to the tipline homepage.

Social Media Trend

You may have heard of a recent “challenge” on the social media app TikTok where individuals are encouraging others to steal or damage school property. The original video on TikTok now has over 11 million views and many re-creations. Students are stealing items from their campuses which include soap dispensers, toilet paper holders, microscopes,, teacher’s car keys, and damaging drinking fountains, toilets, fire alarms and more.

This is happening all over the country, and MVHS is not immune from such vandalism and theft. Our buildings are meant to be a safe, clean space for our students and staff and we will not tolerate the destruction and theft of school property. Replacing these items is very costly and takes precious time away from other priorities. Beyond this, our custodial team works very hard to serve our students and keep our campuses clean and safe -- especially with the increased risks from COVID-19.

Your student will likely hear about this viral trend, which presents an opportunity to speak with your children about the appropriate use of technology, being socially responsible, and reminding them that this “challenge” is criminal behavior, not an innocent prank.

If you have any information regarding these incidents or questions about this matter, please contact Joshua Jones, Assistant Principal, OR submit a tip via our anonymous tipline (PSST World). Thank you for partnering with us to keep our schools and students safe.

Weekly COVID Cases on Campus

In lieu of sending all-school community updates for every case of COVID on our campus, I will provide a brief update for MVHS in the Wolf Pack Weekly.

During the past week (since last Friday), MVHS had 2 new cases of COVID-19 among students/staff.

School community members can also follow up-to-the-minute data on our District's COVID-19 Dashboard.
