Welcome to Vista Verde
Vista Verde K-8 School is a wonderful place for students to learn and grow. Our school community values positive academic and social growth, believes in a rigorous well-rounded education, values diversity, and looks out for the best interest of children.
In Irvine Unified School District, we promise to provide the highest quality educational experience we can envision. We evaluate our effects on student learning and achievement by focusing on evidence of student learning. IUSD educators acknowledge the importance of many different types of assessments, or multiple measures, as part of a balanced assessment system in determining our effect.
Ultimately, our work is guided by four essential questions:
- What do we want students to know and be able to do?
- How will students demonstrate that they have mastered essential learning and developed the essential capacities?
- How will we intervene for students who struggle and enrich the learning for students who are proficient?
- How can we use the evidence of student learning to improve our individual and collective practice?
We invite you to learn more about our program by visiting the tabs at the top of the page and the links on the left. Thank you for entrusting your child's education to us!
Parking Lot Protocol and Drop-off /Pick-up Procedures
Please take some time to read and review our comprehensive parking lot procedures. We encourage you to share this information with grandparents and other care givers who may come to school to either drop off or pick up your child. Please embrace our S.T.A.R. philosophy by being Safe School Community members to others while driving in our parking lot. We work hard to keep kids safe at all times while on campus. Thank you so much for your assistance in ensuring that all families follow these guidelines to keep our students safe.
City of Irvine Suggested Routes to School
Each year, City of Irvine prepares a Suggested Routes to School map for schools in Irvine to develop uniformity in the use of school area traffic controls, and to serve as the basis for a traffic control plan. The Suggested Routes to School map consists of the attached drawing showing area streets, the school, existing traffic controls, established school walking routes, and established school crossings. Information regarding the safe operation of bicycles is also included.
We are hopeful that you will find this information beneficial. We believe that the Suggested Routes to School map is a helpful guide for school pedestrians and bicyclists on the appropriate routes to travel to and from school. Safe travels!
Our teachers, administrators and support staff are committed to academic excellence and quality service for our families. As such, we hope to make the enrollment process as quick and convenient as possible. Enrollment for the 2018-19 school year began on March 9, 2018. Please see the link here for more information https://iusd.org/about/iusd-enrollment . To schedule an enrollment appointment, or for additional information or questions, please contact our Office Assistant, Heather Ashworth at email@example.com
Volunteer Sign In System
Vista Verde K-8 School is pleased to announce that IUSD will begin using the Raptor Visitor/Volunteer Management System in all of our schools to build on the district's program of campus safety for students and faculty. Part of keeping students and faculty safe is knowing who is in our building at all times. Raptor allows us to do that. Raptor will better allow us to track visitors and volunteers in our schools and provide us with a safer environment for students and staff.
