Hello VAPA Community. This is Dr. Trimis.

Hola, comunidad de VAPA.

Congratulations to our instrumental music groups directed by Mr. Cuevas who performed last Friday in Winterfest. I encourage you to come out for the vocal groups Winterfest this Thursday and dance Winterfest this Friday, both at 6:3-0 pm. Cost of admission is an un-wrapped, new toy donation for our Toy Drive.

Please note all students must be fully vaccinated by the start of the Spring Semester. More info and vaccine appointments may be found at  This week we will have on-site vaccination clinics at Legacy on Tuesday from 12-7 pm and on Thursday. Students must have a signed parent waiver to get a vaccination.

We will have a number of upcoming incentives. Previously, we have given away a Nintendo Switch, Apple Airpods, an electric scooter, and drones. We will have another drawing on the last day of school for additional incentive prizes.

Please note that LAUSD is reassigning students who are not vaccinated to City of Angels Virtual Academy as of January 10, and at that time, these students will no longer be attending VAPA and will not be able to participate in sports, music groups, or activities such as graduation and Grad Nite at VAPA. I want to encourage our students to get vaccinated their safety, the safety of their family and friends, the safety of our students and staff, and for the future of our school. Advisory teachers and staff can assist with uploading vaccination records.

Looking forward to the Spring Semester, Frozen the Musical opens February 17 and we will add some programs and events including the Harmony Project, California Cadet Corps, Key Club, our 10th Anniversary Celebration, original Musicals Showcase, Spring Play,  Springfest, and our original student musical, The Hardest Goodbye. It will be quite a semester!

Please check our website ( and social media, and be on the look-out for messages , emails, and texts from us for important updates.

Have a great week, and, I’ll SEE YOU AT SCHOOL!

Take Care,

Dr. Edward Trimis, Principal
