Rancho Vista Elementary

Announcements

The opening of our 20-21 school year will certainly be different than any opening we’ve experienced in the past.  With orders from our Governor and Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, all class instruction must be through distance learning for now. All students will start with distance learning on Monday, August 10th.

Welcome to our new school year.  We are excited to have you as part of Westside Union School District.

On Friday, July 17th, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered all school campuses to remain physically closed in counties on the state’s monitoring list due to spiking COVID-19 cases. This includes Los Angeles County. Schools cannot re-open until their county has come off the state’s monitoring list for 14 consecutive days.

Our Board held a special meeting on Monday, July 20th to listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and determine how the 20-21 school year will open for our students given the Governor’s Order. Read more in this post.

The celebration of our nation’s independence provides us an important opportunity to reflect on the events of this past spring. In forging our nation, our Founding Fathers laid out lofty principles by which the nation should be established.

 

Rancho Vista school can best be described as a caring, supportive environment focused on student learning across the curriculum. We recognize the impact that good school attendance, positive character choices and respectful behavior have on student achievement and work to make the connections with student achievement for our students. We strive to inspire each child to reach their potential in all areas of the curriculum. Rancho Vista Elementary School is located in the southwest portion of the Antelope Valley in the community of Palmdale. It serves kindergarten through sixth grade students, with an enrollment of approximately 680 students. In 2006 Rancho Vista was named a California Distinguished School, the first in the Westside Union School District.

Rancho Vista is operating as a permanent school site, although the school is mostly relocatable. There are currently 33 classrooms, a multi-purpose building, a library, and an administration building. Twenty-seven classrooms are currently being used as regular general education classrooms. Others include a computer lab, a staff workroom, a Resource Specialist/Speech classroom, TK-2 Special Day Class, 3-4 Special Day Class and a 5-6 Special Day Class.
