Principal's Announcement
Posted 8/5/20





Although we are in the midst of a pandemic, and surrounded by uncertainties, I am still so thankful and incredibly honored to open another school year at Volcano Vista. I understand that many things are unclear, but what is crystal clear is our ongoing commitment and dedication to our students, staff, families and community. We are still HAWK STRONG!


As you may know, Gov. Lujan-Grisham has mandated that all schools in NM start with remote learning until at least Sept. 7. As we get closer to this date, additional information from our state will dictate if we continue remote learning or move to a hybrid model. Volcano Vista is currently preparing for both remote and hybrid models. We will share information about remote learning now. We will share information about hybrid learning when we are preparing to transition. 

Remote Learning Schedule:

Ontime attendance/participation is required (not optional). Assignments and assessments will be graded (not optional). Advisory will take place every Monday, and attendance/participation is also required (not optional).



First day of school: Aug 12 (C Day – all classes)

Aug 13 (Evens – periods 1, 2, 4, 6)
Aug 14 (Odds – periods 1, 3, 5, 7

NOTE: Teachers will communicate with all families via email to share class access information.

I want to please let you all know that I understand much of what you are feeling and much of what you are thinking. As both a parent and educator, I am moving through this pandemic with you. I want you to always feel free to ask me anything as often as needed. I will not feel bothered, and I am happy to support you and your families in any way that I can. I do not have all the answers, but I will always respond. I will lead VV with grace, strength, courage and a sincere focus on service. I may not always get it right, but I will always get after it until I can make it right. Please know that you all are not alone in this. Volcano Vista stands with you, and together we will make this a safe, productive, memorable year for kids.


Yours in Partnership, 


Dr. B
