    What is your passion? What do you want to do for a career? Do you know what it means to be College and Career Ready? Can you have a successful career without college?

    If you have arranged a doctor's appointment or other meeting for your student, the attendance office requires your help so that you may pick up your child with no disturbance to the classroom they are leaving. 

    Call the Attendance Office ahead of time, up to 9 a.m. the day of the appointment.  Your student then must come to the front office before school, at brunch, or lunch to obtain an off-campus pass based on the information you leave on the attendance line. 

    To arrange an early pick-up provide information as follows: 

    • student’s legal name (please spell it out) -- no nicknames, please
    • student’s ID #
    • grade
    • reason for absence
    • date(s) of absence
    • the time you will pick up your student
    • your name and relationship

    Your student will show their pass to the classroom teacher, exit the class at the designated time, and then sign out in the front office before leaving campus.  Students cannot leave their classroom without a pass.  If a student leaves campus without signing out in the front office, it is considered a cut.  

    Dear Monte Vista High School Families,

    With a student population reaching 2500 our goals are to continue positive Safety Efforts and to adhere to civic codes.  Please Review the following Safety Rules:

    BY-LAW:  Fire Lanes Must Be Clear At All Times.  Not to be used for pick-up, drop off or parking.  This is considered a civil code violation.

     

    NEED TO KNOW TRAFFIC TIPS:

    • We have closed off the parking lot by off the horseshoe to all drop-off traffic. ONLY VEHICLES DISPLAYING A CURRENT STAFF PARKING PASS will be allowed to enter this area.  This is not a visitor parking area or drop off zone.  
    • Visitor parking spots are located in the front 2 rows of the lot by the large gym.  
    • To park, students and visitors should enter the school at the signal.  
    • Additionally, parents and students should not be using the fire lane blocking the exit lane(s).   This fire lane is meant for emergency vehicles and quick exit of traffic from the lot.  

    REMINDERS FOR DROP OFF:  

    • Pedestrians should always use a crosswalk to cross streets and driveways.
    • Students should remove headphones and listen and look both ways before crossing streets.
    • Vehicles should follow all posted traffic rules, including speed limits, no cell phones, and turning prohibitions. 
    • After drop off, Vehicles should continue to move through drop off zone allowing others to move in to drop off their students.  
    • PEDESTRIANS Always have the right of way.
    • U-Turns are illegal from the exit to entrance of horseshoe.  
    • PLEASE KEEP THE INTERSECTIONS AND ROADWAYS ON AND OFF CAMPUS CLEAR SO TRAFFIC FLOWS SMOOTHLY.

    Our main goal is to ensure safe travel for students to school each day whether that be on foot, by car or via bicycle.  THANK YOU for your attention to these details as you visit Monte Vista High School.  Have a wonderful day and Happy New Year!
