Rancho Vista Elementary

2019/2020 School Year

Rancho Vista Families,

I would like to share with you how the Districts most recent Corona Virus Update on March 11 impacts Rancho Vista. As was shared in this update, there are no confirmed or reported cases of coronavirus in PVPUSD at this time. Our school will remain open and we continue to look forward to teaching your children every day. Changes that are in effect immediately at Rancho Vista, based on the guidance of the California Department of Health include the following:

In an effort to limit the people on campus to staff and students only, volunteering in the classrooms is suspended until further notice.

Any scheduled Art at Your Fingertips Activities are postponed until further notice.

Parent conferences/parent meetings scheduled for March 12 are not canceled as children will not be on campus.

The Battle of the Books event on Saturday, March 21 is postponed until further notice.
Your childs teacher will be letting you know of any previously scheduled activities in March, specific to their classroom/grade level, that are impacted by the recent changes.

Because we are given new information, daily, as a school, we are only looking at those events on our calendar through March 27.

I will update you as new information becomes available.

As we discuss these changes with your children, we can acknowledge any disappointment but reassure the children that we expect these practices to be temporary, and that by making these decisions, we are focusing on keeping school a safe place to learn.

Dr. Salvatrice Kuykendall

Battle of the Books Prep Meeting - POSTPONED. Stay tuned for more information.

Battle of the Books at Soleado - POSTPONED. Stay tuned for more information.

America's Battle of the Books is a reading incentive program for students in 3rd thru 12th grades. Students read books and come together usually in groups to demonstrate their abilities and to test their knowledge of the books they have read. The student competitions are usually similar to the TV series Family Feud or Whiz Kids styles of competitions. We will be battling with other schools from Palos Verdes.

The reading schedule can be found here.
