Enrollment at Vista
How can I enroll my student at Vista Fundamental School?
Waiting lists are maintained for students of school age currently enrolled in grades kindergarten through grade 6. Applications to be placed on the Vista Waiting List are available in the school office during regular school hours. Placement of students is not done during the school year, only during the late spring and summer months. Requirements for attending Vista include that the family must reside in Simi Valley.
Students who will be 5 by September 1, 2014 are eligible for Kindergarten. Siblings of current students should come into the office during the month of January to complete kindergarten enrollment. All remaining openings are filled through a lottery for kindergarten age students. Applications for this event will be available February 3 – 13th, 2014. Parents must come into the office to pick-up and sign for an application packet. This is a true lottery …. not based on “first come, first served”. A mandatory parent meeting will be held on February 12th, 2014. The lottery will be held on Friday, February 14th, 2014 with notifications mailed on Tuesday, February 18th, 2014. Those applications not selected through the lottery will remain on a waiting list in the same order as drawn for future openings.
The SVUSD has two fundamental schools Vista and Hollow Hills. Parents can only participate in ONE LOTTERY and be on ONE WAITING LIST (not both schools). Lists are faxed back and forth to check for errors.

MESSAGE FROM THE S.V.U.S.D.

Dear SVUSD Community
This message is to inform you that at the November School Board meeting the Board of Trustees voted to return all furlough days for the 2013-2014 school year.
With this instructional time returned for students, the school year will now end on June 6, 2014. Please be advised that February 28 and April 21 will also be returned as student free days due to Staff Development. Graduation for high school seniors will remain as scheduled on May 29, which will also be the last day for seniors. Middle school promotion will now be held on June. 5th.
Please contact your individual school with any further questions regarding site specific events or questions. We hope that you enjoy the rest of the school year.
KEEPING STUDENTS SAFE AT VISTA
Student safety is a big concern for everyone at Vista, especially at drop off and pick up times. Please remember that the red curbs are for unloading / loading ONLY in the parking lot. Drivers are NOT to exit their vehicles and students should be prepared to exit the car on the RIGHT SIDE OF THE VEHICLE ONLY with their belongings. You MAY NOT leave your vehicle unattended while in the drop off zones on Wisteria and/ or Madrone. It is also imperative that students not be dropped off in the street or parking lot when a car is "double parked" or in a drive through lane, as this is a serious safety hazard. If you see unsafe driving in the street, please contact the Simi Valley Police Department with a license plate number. If you see unsafe driving in the school parking lot, please report it to the office. We must all work together to keep our students safe!
VISTA LOVES OUR VOLUNTEERS!!!
