Keeping you informed while staying green in 2015-2016

As a means to keep our Mako Families up-to-date with information and 'stay green', we provide you with three main electronic communication networks - the school webpage, weekly Listserv messages and weekly School Messenger phone calls. This also helps us reduce the amount of paper flyers in your child's backpack each week.

  1. Our webpage is updated each month to provide you with quick links to important information.  See the left-hand column Quick Links section where you will find information on topics from the 2015-2016 School Calendar and School Schedule to Parking Lot Procedures and School Supply Lists.
  2. If you want to receive weekly e-mails with up-to-date events and important information, please click on the Listserv link on the right hand column of this webpage. Every Friday, you will receive information to help you stay in touch with all the events and activities at Vista del Mar Elementary School.
  3. Every Saturday morning, I will call the main contact number in our student information system to let you know of important events and information.

This is in addition, to our fantastic office staff and teachers who keep you informed about programs and services we provide for your child each day.

Thanks for helping us keep our ocean blue and landscapes green.

Let's go Makos!
