Start of School Documents
In an effort to cut down on our use of paper and the cost of printing, we will not be sending out a full "Summer Mailer" this year. Instead, we would like to deliver most of our "Start of School" information online. Please take some time to view the Start of School Documents. We hope that you will print out the information/forms/documents that are of interest to you. Note that documents may be added to this list in the coming weeks.
Principal's Message - MV Yearbook

For background information regarding the letter below, you may wish to read the related Mercury News Article.


It is with a heavy heart that I am writing to you to ask you to help us right a serious wrong.

In the current yearbook, a student altered the name of a fellow student, using an ethnic name. This is a transgression that cannot and will not be tolerated.

We are blessed to live in a culturally diverse community, and we celebrate and honor all students and families that grace our Monta Vista community. Each and every student is to be treated with respect and dignity and deserves to have their name correctly represented, honoring their family and heritage. We do not and will not tolerate slurs of any kind.

My sincerest apologies are extended to the victim and the victim's family. While we cannot undo this wrong, we can take measures to correct this very unfortunate situation and have the yearbooks appropriately and correctly represent the names of all students.

Professional labels have been made, correctly representing the student's name. I am asking that all students that purchased a yearbook bring it to the Monta Vista main office and our staff will place a label that correctly represents our student. The MV office is open Monday through Fridays from 7:30 am - 3:30 pm (with a break for lunch from 12 - 1 pm) until June 20. You may also have the correction made when the MV main office reopens in August or visit the Fremont Union High School District Office at 589 W. Fremont Avenue in Sunnyvale on Mondays through Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.

I extend my deepest apologies for this incident. Monta Vista administration will work with staff and students to foster an atmosphere of acceptance, appreciation, trust and honor, and develop greater sensitivity, tolerance, and respect.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding. As this school year comes to an end, I celebrate with you the many accomplishments of our Monta Vista students. I especially congratulate our seniors and I look on with pride and joy at their future endeavors.

Sincerely, April Scott, Principal

Summer Vacation - School is out!
School is out of session, and summer vacation is here. The main office will be closed from June 23 until the first week in August (reopening on August 4). We hope that all of our students have an enjoyable and relaxing summer. School starts again on August 18 . . .
Emailing Info Via ZippSlip
In our ongoing quest to improve communications, we will soon begin sending the majority of important and required information to parents and guardians via email. This approach will accelerate the delivery and receipt of this information and it will also help us decrease mailing and paper costs. You will soon be contacted via email by ZippSlip. ZippSlip will ask you to establish an online account and password, which will be needed to access the documents that will be sent via email. Rest assured that your email address will only be used for ZippSlip purposes and will not be sold or shared with other organizations. We understand that we may have some parents and guardians who do not have an email address. In this case, we will provide information in paper form.
