Virtual College Fair for your Students with Scholarship Opportunity

We invite your high school students to join our free virtual college fair for the West Region of The United States next week, Jan. 23rd-28th. Students can register now through the end of that week! The students can log in any time during that week and get information from many colleges. There is a question and answer section for the students to get answers directly from college reps during the week. The students must go to to the students tab to register ASAP. This service is completely free and each student that participates is entered to win a scholarship, we would love to have your school and students join. Please have your students register as soon as possible if they would like to participate. This is a great virtual resource. Please let me know if you have any questions or need anything.

Due to the severity of allergies of several students, tree nuts or peanuts are not allowed on campus. If your child brings items with nuts, they will not be able to eat them while at school. Thank you for your support in keeping our community safe.

We love when our students are able to share concerns with us directly, but having an anonymous option is really helpful for some! We have a safety line in place for this.

Where can I park when I come on campus?

When parking on campus, all Vista Oaks staff and families must park in the Excelsior Middle School parking lot.

We are not allowed to park in the lots in front of our school as those are designated for the Byron District Office staff.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation!
