We Are All In This Together

Welcome to School Reopening

The purpose of this webpage is to provide parents, students, and the community access to detailed information about the school reopening structure and procedures that we will be implementing starting on the first day of school.  

Our charge as a district during this challenging time is to fulfill two obligations. Our first obligation is to ensure the health and safety of all students, teachers, and staff. Our second obligation is to provide a high quality and engaging learning environment and experience for all students. We are confident that we can meet these obligations with the support and commitment of all parents, students, and community members. Our best plan of action is to rely on each other to be flexible and nimble in our thinking and our collective action. We are all in this together. 

We have designed the school reopening plan as a webpage in an effort to continue to build out the resources and information. Additionally, the webpage format will better position us to make strategic updates and revisions to the plan in the event that the state and county health orders change. All of our planning was closely aligned with the California Department of Education Distance Learning Guidance

Important Information from the VUSD School Board Special Meeting held on September 29, 2020

The school board members received an update on the School Reopening Plan preparations at a special board meeting on September 29, 2020. During the update, the board members reviewed the current health and safety status in San Diego County. For now, San Diego County will remain in the Red Tier of the California COVID-19 monitoring system, Blueprint for a Safer Economy. This will allow our reopening plan to proceed. During the meeting, the board also reviewed the various types of preparations in place to ensure a successful launch of the Vista Classic learning model. The board provided feedback on the various steps being taken to prepare for a successful reopening. The board reaffirmed that the Vista Classic learning model will proceed as planned for in-person learning starting on October 20, 2020 for all grade levels. The students who chose Vista Virtual will remain in the virtual learning environment for the remainder of the fall semester. It is important to note that while many health and safety precautions are in place for the Vista Classic learning model, all classrooms will have the normal amount of students enrolled. This means that while we will be following social distancing procedures, student seating arrangements will be less than six feel apart.  

The school board approved the recommendations from the Superintendent's Council for Innovative Learning. Details regarding the two models, Vista Classic and Vista Virtual, are listed below.
