The campus and surrounding areas are all clear. If you have questions, please contact the school office in the morning, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

ALERT!! Today at 3:09 PM, the Tulare County Sheriff's department put our school on lockdown to investigate reports of gunshots near the Westside of our campus. By 3:14 PM all students still on campus were accounted for by Administration, office personnel, and CHOICES staff members. At 3:24 PM, TCSO notified Alta Vista's school office that the investigation resulted in no findings. This means that there is little evidence of the event except through initial reports from residents. REMINDER: Tomorrow begins the hunting season for dove. There will be gunshots heard early in the morning as hunters kick-off the season. TCSO often increases patrols during this time to support safety of those hunting, residents, and the school community. Thank you for your cooperation in keep our students safe!

Here is an opportunity for all of us to support our students in a different way. Porterville College Foundation has made a deal with the newest Panda Express near Dutch Bros./Walmart. Fifty percent (50%) of the profits for meals sold today with the app/paperwork in the link below go to students that start their college careers at Porterville College. We have many students that benefit from this program. In fact, I started my college career at Porterville College. I am thankful we had a place for me to grow up a little. If you are interested, I have provided the link. https://www.portervillecollege.edu/event/pc-foundation-panda-express-fundraiser
As the year continues, many changes are on the horizon. I am interested to know what our families are thinking. It is very important for me to understand your concerns and I speak with legislator, the board, and other county agencies about the changing requirements, recommendations, and mandates.
