Hello VAPA Community! This is Dr. Trimis with a few announcements! Tuesday is a shortened day. ¡Hola Comunidad de VAPA! Este es el Dr. Trimis con algunos anuncios! El martes es un día acortado.
First of all, please note our school vision: Legacy Visual and Performing Arts High School is a student-centered, creative learning community that engages students intellectually and artistically, instilling responsible citizenship and academic rigor for college and career preparedness.
It is important to know what our vision is as we continue to add new programs and expand our school so everything is aligned to that vision. I have a meeting with the district tomorrow regarding our application to add a magnet center to Legacy VAPA.
Thank you to all the parents that completed the application for Free and Reduced Lunch. The deadline was extended to tomorrow, October 30. There are still 20 families who have not completed the application, most who are receiving free or reduced lunch. Please complete and submit the online form tonight or tomorrow to continue in the program.
Last week an important letter and survey went out to many of our students regarding a special program and opportunity from Sprint. It is critical that all of the paperwork is signed and returned ASAP before the time runs out.
This week the LAUSD School Experience Survey will be available online. You may complete it online or through the hard-copy paper process in a few weeks. We are striving for 100% for the survey which is completed by all students, parents, and staff.
Lastly, with this week being Halloween. Please note the following:
Students may wear costumes to school. The single largest criteria is that costumes may not be demeaning to any person or group based on ethnicity, race, religion, nationality, disability, gender, gender identity (boys as girls and vice versa), or individual (staff or student) at the school. · Costume may not cause a significant or distraction to the school program; i.e., no revealing costumes (low cut, French maids, nightwear, bathing suites, etc.) · No costumes may include props or equipment that is unsafe · No weapons, or even replica weapons, are to be brought to school. · No costumes are allowed that would impair a student’s vision or movement (ability to climb stairs) · Masks may not be worn during a parade or other specific activity, as determined by the administrator. · All provisions regarding obscene materials or prohibited substance remain in effect. ·
Have a great week and I'll see you at school!
