Principal's Welcome Letter
Welcome to a brand new school year at Vista Verde!
I look forward to working closely with you to provide an educational environment where students learn and thrive academically and socially! To open the school year smoothly, I would like to bring to your attention the following things. The first is the return of the emergency packets. Please return them as soon as possible to the school. We also need your help with two reoccurring problems; Dress Code and Tardiness. You can help us by taking a look at what your student is wearing in the morning before they leave the house. White t-shirts, sports team apparel, ripped jeans, and anything red are not permitted.
Our main focus is on maximizing opportunities for students to access high quality instruction. To this end, it is important that students arrive on time to school and are ready to learn! We continue to have students late in the mornings; we would like to ask you to bring the students before the first bell: it rings at 7:55 a.m. and the student should be in class by that time. We will begin to assign detention to students that arrive late to school.
Students may bring lunches with them from home if they choose to do so. In order to diminish interruptions in the educational environment and to maintain maximum health and safety, we request that you do not bring lunches to the school for students. I thank you for your support and I look forward to our partnership.
Yours in Education,
Back To School Night
