Wearing the Correct Mask?

The guidelines for masks have been revised. Please send your child to school with a mask that has at least two layers of material and has a wire on the nose area to securely seal air from escaping out the top. Neck gaiters are no longer an acceptable mask for school. We have done school announcements about this for students, so they know that they should not be wearing these. Masks with air vents continue to be unacceptable.


Thank you for your attention to this as we continue to work diligently to keep our schools open for students amidst the pandemic.

We have 3 remaining meetings: January 13th, February 10th & March 10th, all after school at 3:30 pm.


Every year a group of parents, faculty, staff and community members gather to provide input on school improvement topics. This year the Site Council will focus on Family Engagement. If you have ideas/opinions about family engagement strategies and/or your experiences with engagement at Ventana Vista you'd like to share, please apply to join our site council today! The application is attached below. Please return it to the front office or email it to abuick@cfsd16.org.

New Playground Equipment Installed Over Winter Break! So Much Fun!

The Loopy Whoop was installed during the winter break. Students use forces/physics to work together to make themselves spin in a circle. It has been a popular addition to the playground!

Sweetheart Dance

We have unfortunately made the difficult decision to cancel our Sweetheart Dance. The health and safety of our community is our first priority. Should conditions improve, we’ll look into having other community events in the spring.

Deadline is approaching to submit 2022/2023 Open Enrollment Applications
