Welcome to Valley Center Public Schools
Embracing Today. Preparing for Tomorrow.


Hornet Happenings

    Beginning Monday, April 6,
    and continuing throughout
    the school closure, the
    District Office has modified
    its hours. The official hours
    are from 9:00-3:00, Monday
    through Friday. Staff are
    available by phone/email
    during those times. Please
    do not hesitate to contact us.




    Hornets: Friday, April 10 has been a No School - Holiday on the district calendar since the beginning of the year. Because we know families and staff may have made plans, we will be observing this Friday as originally scheduled. We will not have school nor serve meals. However, Wednesday’s meal will include a Friday lunch. All offices will also be closed. Monday, April 13, originally planned as a No School - Professional Development day will now be a school day. Teachers will be getting information out to their students soon. We understand some may have made plans for the day, and teachers will be flexible regarding tasks. The last day for seniors is still May 8, and the final school day for all other students has been moved to May 19.
