Classic Students Return Five Days a Week!
Happy Spring Break Panther Community,
The Panther Staff is thrilled to announce that upon return from spring break, our Classic students will be attending classes five days per week. With yet, another change, we are going to be returning to the original bell schedule we started the year with. When we return from spring break on April 5th, we will start with single periods on Monday, April 5 followed by block periods Tuesday through Friday. Periods 1, 3, 5 will be on Tuesday and Thursday and Periods 2, 4, 6 will be Wednesday and Friday.
All “Classic” students will return to school on April 5, 2021. If you are a classic student with virtual classes, you will once again have the option to attend these classes on campus in a proctored environment OR you can choose to take these courses off campus by completing the Parent Permission Form click here.
When students return to campus five days per week, it is imperative they follow all COVID protocols including maintaining social distancing (no less than 3 feet), wearing masks at all times, washing hands frequently, and staying home in the event any potential COVID symptoms arise.
We strongly encourage all students and parents to read their email a day or two before April 5th to get updates about our reopening that may arise over the next week. More information about our opening will likely be sent via email to families by Sunday, April 4, 2021.
There are undoubtedly questions about end of year activities including graduation from our community. More information will be provided about activities and events on, and associated with campus after spring break.
Our sincere hope is that this is the last major adjustment for the year. On behalf of the entire staff we offer our great appreciation to all of our families for all you are doing and have done to manage this pandemic and the impact on public education.
On behalf of the entire Panther Community, we wish you all a restful and rejuvenating spring break.
¡Los estudiantes clásicos regresan cinco días a la semana!
Felices vacaciones de primavera, familias de VHS,
El personal de VHS se complace en anunciar que al regresar de las vacaciones de primavera, nuestros estudiantes de modelo Clásico asistirán a clases cinco días a la semana. Con otro cambio más, volveremos al horario de campana original con el que comenzamos el año escolar. Cuando regresemos de las vacaciones de primavera el 5 de abril, comenzaremos con todos los períodos el lunes 5 de abril, seguidos de períodos de bloque de martes a viernes. Los períodos 1, 3 y 5 serán los martes y jueves y los períodos 2, 4 y 6 serán los miércoles y viernes.
Todos los estudiantes "Clásicos" regresarán a la escuela el 5 de abril de 2021. Si eres un estudiante clásico con clases virtuales, nuevamente tendrás la opción de asistir a estas clases en el plantel escolar en un entorno supervisado O puedes optar por tomar estas clases fuera del plantel completando el Formulario de Permiso del Padre yendo aquí click here
Cuando los estudiantes regresen al plantel cinco días a la semana, es imperativo que sigan todos los protocolos de COVID, incluido el mantenimiento del distanciamiento social (no menos de 3 pies), usar máscaras en todo momento, lavarse las manos con frecuencia y quedarse en casa en caso de mostrar posibles síntomas de COVID.
Recomendamos encarecidamente a todos los estudiantes y padres que lean su correo electrónico uno o dos días antes del 5 de abril para recibir información actualizada sobre nuestra reapertura que pueda surgir durante la próxima semana. Es probable que se envíe más información sobre nuestra apertura por correo electrónico a las familias antes del domingo 4 de abril de 2021.
Sin duda, hay preguntas sobre las actividades de fin de año, incluida la graduación de nuestros estudiantes. Se proporcionará más información sobre las actividades y eventos asociados con el plantel después de las vacaciones de primavera.
Nuestra más sincera esperanza es que este sea el último ajuste importante del año. En nombre de todo el personal, ofrecemos nuestro agradecimiento a todas nuestras familias por todo lo que están haciendo y han hecho para manejar esta pandemia y el impacto en la educación pública.
En nombre de toda la comunidad de VHS, les deseamos a todos unas vacaciones de primavera relajantes y rejuvenecedoras.

From now until the end of April is peak Scholarship season. Seniors need to be searching for and applying for scholarships dollars. There is a scholarship for just about everyone. Make sure your senior is checking the Scholarship Bulletin on a regular basis and checking the College & Career Center google classroom. Many local scholarships will be coming up over the following months and local and regional scholarships are ones our seniors win each year.

Students who are looking for a job can join us every other Tuesday after school for JOB LAB online. The next session will be on February 9th at 2:45 PM - please register here.
Students who do get a job and are under 18 will need to have a work permit application signed by one of their parents, the new employer and Vista High School. The entire process is done online via email this year. This is the work permit application that needs to be filled in and emailed to Mr. Soderback (firstname.lastname@example.org).

School Accountability Reports (SARC)
State law requires all public schools receiving state funding to prepare and distribute a SARC. The purpose of the report card is to provide parents and the community with important information about each public school. A SARC can be an effective way for a school to report on its progress in achieving goals. The public may also use a SARC to evaluate and compare schools on a variety of indicators. A hard copy will be made available upon request at the school site.
The SARC contains all of the following:
- Demographic data
- School safety and climate for learning information
- Academic data
- School completion rates
- Class sizes
- Teacher and staff information
- Curriculum and instruction descriptions
- Postsecondary preparation information
- Fiscal and expenditure data
