Hello VAPA Community. This is Dr. Trimis. Happy New Year!

Hola, comunidad de VAPA.  Este es el Dr. Trimis. ¡Feliz año nuevo!

We are looking foward to welcoming back all of our students and teachers for a regular A-day on Monday, January 10, beginning at 8:20 am.

We have some new programs beginning this semester including the new California Cadet Corps, open to any students during Zero Period and 9th and 10th graders during Per. 1 as space allows. California Cadet Corps, a student leadership program similar to JROTC, will support several programs and events at school. We also are partnering with the Harmony Project and will have new classes after school and on Saturdays for elementary and high school students. Please go to our website and social media platforms, call us at school, or e-mail me for more information and how to enroll in these programs.

Congratulations to all students who performed with the LAUSD All-City Marching Band in the Tournament of Roses Parade on January 1 including Greg Enriquez, VAPA Class of 2022.

We will be implementing our revised dress code and attendance policies beginning January 11. Information was sent home and is also avilable on our website.

We continue to encourage all of our students to be vaccinated against COVID19 for their safety and the safety of their families, community, and our VAPA community. Vaccinations continue to be offered by LAUSD as well as required weekly testing at school for all students and staff.

Frozen the Musical opens February 17. Hope to see you there!

Please check our website ( and social media, and be on the look-out for messages , emails, and texts from us for important updates. You can always call us at 323-357-7531 or e-mail me at if you have any questions.
