Vista, CA — 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

Middle School Return to In-Person Learning One Day per Week Set for March 1, 2021

The School Board met on Thursday, February 11th to review options for returning middle school students who chose Vista Classic to in-person learning. During the meeting, two possible options were presented based on recommendations from the Superintendent’s Council for Innovative Learning and alignment to the most recent revision to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirements for social distancing. The school board approved option one, which calls for one day per week in-person instruction, three days per week synchronous virtual live learning with the teacher, and one day per week asynchronous learning (without the teacher). Each middle school will be organizing the grouping, schedule, and communication plan for students and parents in the coming two weeks. Our administrative team will be working with teachers and staff to address appropriate impacts and effects so that our staff is supported as we implement this new structure. We anticipate all middle schools will start on Monday, March 1, 2021.

High School Vista Classic Return to In-Person Learning Set for March 8th

The School Board met on Thursday, February 18th to review options for returning high school students who chose Vista Classic to in-person learning. During the meeting, four possible options were presented based on recommendations from the Superintendent’s Council for Innovative Learning and alignment to the most recent revision to the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) requirements for social distancing. The board voted unanimously to return all Vista Classic secondary students (middle and high) on March 8, 2021 to in-person learning 5 days a week if the district is in the Orange Tier and the state approves the exemption (called CDPH Safe Schools for All Specific Safety Review). If the exemption is not approved or if Vista Unified is not yet in the Orange Tier, all comprehensive high schools will open on March 8, 2021 with the same stable group model as middle schools, which calls for one day per week in-person instruction, three days per week synchronous virtual live learning with the teacher, and one day per week asynchronous learning (without the teacher). Middle schools will open on March 1st using this model, as planned.

Each secondary school is in the process of organizing the grouping, schedule, and communication plan for students and parents. Our administrative team is working with teachers and staff to address appropriate impacts and effects so that our staff is supported as we implement this new structure. Each school will be shifting to one asynchronous day – February 26th for middle school and March 5th for high school – to prepare for the transition back to in-person learning. The board directed the district administration to collaborate with the Vista Teachers Association in an effort to bring simultaneous teaching opportunities to secondary students in Vista Unified. Please note that in the event of inclement weather (defined as 30% chance of rain 48 hours before the day) all middle and high schools will pivot to virtual synchronous learning for that day or days depending on the forecast. This is a health and safety measure outlined in the Guidelines for Quarantines and Instructional Pivots approved during the December 15, 2020 board meeting.
