Happy Fall PVSD Families!


Our students had a great week and we hope that you did, too.


If you are looking for something fun to do this afternoon, join me in cheering on Las Colinas, Monte Vista, and PVSEA Cross Country teams at Camino Real Park in Ventura. We have our own Las Colinas teacher Ron Spiker to thank for coordinating cross country competitions for the benefit of all of west county students. Be there by 3:45pm to catch the start of the races.

Please see the important updates below.
