All of us are facing challenging decisions about how to continue with our daily lives. Below are a few important updates and resources.

AMS Device Distribution

We are still committed to ensuring our students receive the devices they need so that they can participate in online learning. However, with the Safe at Home order, we have had to reevaluate our strategy in this area. We are currently re-evaluating our plan and will distribute devices on a larger scale with a more robust social distancing plan in place. Our goal is to provide more information to you on the device distribution by grade level this week. As we prepare for the distribution, please take a few minutes to read the following VUSD Device Contract.

Please browse the following Family Activity Packets for Grades Prek-12. Please select a packet based on your child's age and/or ability level.

The entire school community takes pride in the reality that, working together, we can succeed and make a difference.
