Good evening Viper families,

Good evening Viper families,

Please remind your student to bring a water bottle every day. All our drinking fountains have been converted to water bottle filling stations, so students need a water bottle every day. Thank you very much for coming to school prepared to stay hydrated and do your best.

This Friday, April 29th is the Big Give Check Presentation Ceremony at 5:30 pm here at Vista Magnet. Everyone is welcome to join the celebration as we reveal the fundraiser total for Vista’s Big Give this year!

During the month of May, Vista Magnet students will take the annual CAASPP state tests to measure learning in math and language arts, and 8th graders will also have a test in science. VMMS students will begin testing during the week of May 9th, and tests will be spaced out over the following two weeks so students test during two days each week. Students will have test sessions in the mornings and attend regular classes in the afternoon, and our school start and end time will remain normal each day.

Lastly, please mark your calendars for our next PTA dine-out fundraiser at Chipotle on Tuesday, May 3rd from 4-8 pm. Please look for more information on our school website soon.


Last week we had 4 individuals at our school who tested positive for COVID-19. Staff members and students who may have come into close contact with the individual(s) have already received a separate communication from school staff. Students who are absent due to a COVID related situation should refer to our Student Quarantine Instructions to stay up to date with their classwork.


COVID testing sites are available at a variety of locations in our school district. Please see these flyers for more information: Testing Centers - English

We encourage everyone who is eligible to get the COVID vaccination, which is available free at the Vista Innovation Center every weekday. Please see these flyers for more information:
