K-3 RETURNING BACK TO SCHOOL

Monte Vista is excited to announce that starting Monday, November 2nd we will be able to bring our K-3rd grade students back on campus to meet face to face with their teacher during their weekly one-hour appointments. The choice to meet in person or to keep your weekly appointments virtually is up to you. We plan to support you and your child in either option to the best of our ability. Families that decide to come back will need to meet the district and county set protocols and procedures.

THESE PROTOCOLS INCLUDE

Wearing a face mask at all times while on campus.

Keeping social distance between other students and staff.

Having your temperature taken when arriving on campus.

To help us with the planning process, please take a moment to complete the survey using the link below by Monday, October 26th. We are all looking forward to starting the process of returning back to ‘normal’ and appreciate your support and patience during this pandemic.
