As we prepare for the phased in reopening starting on October 26, 2020, we are aware that there are families who had a change in their circumstances affecting the learning environment they chose in August. We are surveying families so they can indicate any change in circumstance. Please note: we want to be clear that filling out the survey does not guarantee a change in placement.

We have updated the contact information for our District Office and all school sites. Please check your school's website for the new phone number and update your records. The new District Office phone number has changed to 805-389-2100.
The PVSD School Board approved our Safe Reopening and Recovery Plan for fall 2020 at the special board meeting held on July 30, 2020.
The purpose of the Local Plan is to: (1) Outline the special education policies/procedures and services that are offered throughout the SELPA. (2) To assure access to special education and related services for all individuals with exceptional needs residing within the geographic areas served by the plan and (3) To assure compliance with all Federal and State codes and statutes.
The Monte Vista Office is open 9am to 1pm, Monday thru Friday. You may contact the office at (805) 383-5335 to make an appointment outside of regular office hours.
On Monday, Oct. 26th, we will start Quarter 2. Your student's Q2 Schedule will be viewable Friday, Oct. 23rd in Parent Connect. Remember that on the 3 x3 schedule, Q2 is three different classes and three new instructors. Your child’s schedule will be viewable in Q on Friday, Oct. 23rd. Due to this year’s numerus scheduling abnormalities, the numbering system for periods is a bit confusing. Please use the chart: Q2 schedules to read your child’s Q2 schedule.
Q2 teachers have invited students to thier Google Classrooms. Google Classrooms will be labeled as Periods 1, 2, and 3A/3B to help avoid confusion and make it clear to your child at what time the class will take place. Please remind students not delete current Q1 Google classrooms, as they will need them again in Q3.
All parent onboarding information will be available on teacher pages by the end of the first week of classes, Friday, Oct. 30th, by 4pm. Please contact our office if you need assistance with your child’s schedule.
Quarter 1 report cards will be viewable in Parent Connect on Friday, October 30th. If your child has an IEP, progress towards goals will be emailed to you directly from your case manager via a SIRAS link. Hard copies will not be printed or mailed home of either document.
In order to continue to help with child care needs during Modified Traditional instruction, Monte Vista will be offering on site Child Supervision for students who attend Monte Vista only. If you need child supervision on days your child is not scheduled to attend school, please click here. When you register, you will need to click on the cohort your child is assigned to attend school in-person. (You can find this info on Parent Connect/Student Connect under the “class cohort” tab). This will ensure you are signing up for Child Supervision on the opposite cohort days. (i.e. if your child is assigned Cohort A, you will click on the Cohort A link. This will sign you up for Child Supervision on the days your child will not be attending in-person classes).
Who is eligible? The children of Essential Workers and District Employees grades K--8th
What is the cost? No cost. PVSD is covering costs of the program and partnering with Camarillo Boys and Girls Club.
When do the students attend? Students attend on days they are not scheduled to attend school in-person.
What are the hours? Elementary schools 8:10-1:40, Middle School 8:30 am - 2:15 pm
Who is facilitating the group? The Boys and Girls Club staff. They are not teachers nor tutors. They are youth development staff providing a safe space for our students to engage in studies.
Monte Vista Child Supervision is first come, first serve. Space is limited due to COVID19 saftey procedures. You will be contacted to verify your enrollment prior to starting.
Questions? Please contact Kayleigh Kelp, email@example.com, or call 805-383-5335 if you have any questions about the PVSD Supervision Program.
Monte Vista welcomes back two small cohorts of students on Tuesday, Nov. 3rd. The campus will open for all students on Monday, November 16th, using our A and B attendance groups. As we prepare for students to return, we are taking steps on our campus to direct student traffic in one way patterns to minimize students crossing over one another. We are also working to devise drop off and pick up patterns, locations and procedures to keep students appropriately spaced. One of our first parent tasks to prepare for the return to campus is the Parent and Student Daily Self-Assessment for COVID-19 Agreement. This form must be signed by all families prior to a student returning to campus this school year. Even if you are considering not sending your child to campus until later in the year, this form will be required so please take care of this now. The Daily Self-Assessment for COVID-19 Agreement certifies that each day before the start of school, a parent/guardian will assess their child(ren) for COVID-19 symptoms and comply with the terms of the agreement to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Although you are only signing this form once, your signature affirms that you will assess your child’s health every day before school and not send a child with symptoms to school. Our office must have hardcopies on file for every student. There are three ways to accomplish this:
More information will be shared about reopening as we get closer to our campus' reopening date.
Monte Vista is pleased to be able to provide after school math tutoring and homework assistance for our students. At this time services will be virtual via Zoom, but students have the opportunity to work with a math teacher two days a week after school and/or receive general homework support one day per week. In order to access the services, you must reach out to Mrs. Burchell and indicate in which session(s) you would like your child to participate. At that time, a Google Classroom link will be shared with your child to be invited to the session. Zoom links and practice materials will be shared via Google Classroom. Sessions will run from 2:15pm – 3:15pm and will be available through the end of May. Here is the schedule:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in any of the above sessions.
Monte Vista ASB is sponsoring a Socktober Drive, to collect new pairs of socks for adults and children to donate to the Rain Project, a local agency that supports homeless families in our community with a safe place to live as they transition to own home. ASB will post donation boxes outside of our school office throughout the month of October for families to drop off donations. Please drop of donations in a plastic bag with your child’s name written on the bag. Students making donations will receive a raffle ticket for each pair of socks donated and will have a chance to win fun MV prizes.
As you aware, Monte Vista lost an amazing educator. Many current and former families have reached out to inquire how best to honor Mrs. Postal and celebrate her life and impact in our community. The Postal family has reached out to CSU Channel Islands and is setting up a scholarship fund for a future educator. If you are interested in donating to the scholarship fund, you may do so at this link: https://www.gatheringus.com/memorial/mary-postal/5231 . If you are in communication with former MV families, please feel free to share the link with them as well. Our school is still working on memorial ideas for our campus and will keep you posted once a decision has been made.
