Our Pivot to Vista Virtual
The decision to pivot was made at the special board meeting on Tuesday during which the board took action to establish a threshold at all comprehensive middle and high schools: if two COVID-19 positive cases are identified at one individual school, this will initiate an immediate pivot for Vista Classic students and staff to Vista Virtual at the impacted school. MVHS has two positive cases now.
It is important to note that the decision to pivot was made primarily due to staffing challenges in finding available substitutes to cover classes of quarantined teachers as well as staff members who call in absences to work.
As we pivot back to Virtual learning, we remain steadfast in our commitment to provide high-quality, relevant and engaging learning experiences for all students.
Ultimately, the board took action in the following areas:
- Established a threshold at all comprehensive middle and high schools: if two COVID-19 positive cases are identified at one individual school, this will initiate an immediate pivot for Vista Classic students and staff to Vista Virtual for 14 days at the impacted school.
- Established a secondary threshold at all comprehensive middle and high schools: if one COVID-19 positive case is identified at three or more secondary schools concurrently, within the same 14-day period, this will initiate a pivot for Vista Classic students to Vista Virtual for 14 days at all of the impacted schools.
Midterms are Next Week!
