Important Registration Instructions:

This must be completed through your Parent Portal and NOT the Student Portal. If you are unsure of your status, please log into your Parent Portal and the system will let you know if you have not completed the process.

Drive-Up Registration Details:

  • Registration is primarily drive-through, so please stay in your car, and make sure that everyone in the car is wearing a mask. Face coverings are required for everyone on campus per San Diego County Public Health Orders. AVHS staff will instruct you through the registration process, and instruct students on the process for exiting the car to have their school ID photo taken.

  • When you arrive for drive-up registration, you will be picking up a VUSD Chromebook, charging cord, and a school supply pack, signing required paperwork, and students will be exiting the car to have their school ID photo taken. Chromebooks are available to all students!
