Good Afternoon,

This is Dr. Doyle, Interim Superintendent of the Vista School Unified District. I am calling with a highly important message.  Tomorrow, Monday, December 11th, all schools in our District will be open and resume their regular schedule including extra curricular and sporting events. All transportation routes will resume normal services as well.

According to CalFire, the Lilac wildfire is 60% contained and the advancement has been halted. All roads into and out of Vista Schools have been cleared of danger and are currently open. According to the Air Pollution Control District of San Diego County, the air quality forecast for Monday, December 11, 2017 is good to moderate throughout the day. Please check our district website for more details.

Vista Unified custodial/grounds crews have been working over the weekend to clean the school campuses and ensure all air filtration systems are clean and in proper working order. For schools located on or near Highway 76, Vista Unified has brought in an air quality specialist (ServePro) to clean the air in all classrooms.

Most importantly, we care deeply about supporting all students, families and staff in our district. The Student Support Services Department is working proactively with counselors, school social workers, our community partners, and the district crisis management team to support any students, families and staff who have been evacuated as a result of the Liliac wildfire. Please visit our district webpage for more details. You can also call 760-726-2170 ext. 92922 to speak to a bilingual VUSD School Social Worker who can assist you with resources for housing, food and counseling.

Again, all Vista Unified schools will be open tomorrow, December 11th for school.

I would like to extend my most sincere appreciation to all of the firefighters, police officers, support staff, and community members who dedicated themselves to helping others in this time of need. I would encourage everyone to continue to reach out to our fellow community members who have been impacted by the wildfires as they begin the process of healing.

Thank you

Please also review our district policy and guidelines. Students not only need to attend school every day, they need to arrive on time and stay the entire day. Every time a child arrives late or is picked up early, it not only interrupts their learning but the learning of their peers.
