Westside Pedestrian & Bicycle Improvements

Does your student walk to and from school? The City of Ventura is working with Granite Construction to improve the Ventura Avenue bike and pedestrian routes. There will be periods between 11/13/17 to 2/6/17 when sidewalks, access ramps and driveways will not be accessible. Be SAFE DATA Navigators and be ready and willing to use the nearest available crosswalks. Use ways to walk to school that you are not used to even though this may mean needing to walk out of the way.

Remember, crossing Ventura Avenue illegally (jay-walking) is absolutely not permitted.

Box Top Collection

Please support DATA by collecting Box Tops. See below for two easy ways to collect.

Saturday, the 18th is Garden Serve Day AND Saturday School

Please help us create the next phase of our garden learning environment and gain community service hours. We will be installing our native plant and butterfly garden and need help laying weed cloth, installing pathways, and planting. Sign up on this form (CLICK HERE) or turn in the Saturday School permission slip. Students must have a permission slip on file if they’d like to make up an absence.

Saturday School is from 8am-12:30pm
