Dear Families,

On behalf of the staff at Vista Academy, We are happy to welcome you to the Bulldog family! We are looking forward to a productive partnership with you to ensure our children can achieve their highest potential. We recognize that to be successful in school, our children need support from both home and school. We know a strong partnership with you will make a significant difference in your child’s education. As partners, we share the responsibility for our children’s success and want you to know that we will do our very best to carry out our responsibilities.

This newsletter should be used as a guide in regard to enrollment for your child. We will outline next steps as well as provide you with more information about our amazing school and staff members.

If your child is a current VUSD student, currently enrolled at another VUSD school, you only need to complete the Participation Agreement linked below, and we will pull your child's records over to Vista Academy through our VUSD Aeries database.

Once again, Welcome to the Bulldog Family!
