We, the undersigned community members, demand that the Vista Unified Board of Education Trustees modify the return to Vista Classic in a continuing effort to keep our students and communities safe and healthy.


Under the current Vista USD plan, class sizes will be at MAX capacity

Elementary Ratio: 1 to 34 students
Middle School: 1 to 34 students
High School: 1 to 38 students

This is in direct opposition to the mitigation agreed to in the Memorandum of Understanding and the statement by Tom Coleman, the Medical Director for Maternal, Child, and Family Health Services at the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, “Children 10 years and older should be considered adults and treated as such.  It is not safe to be in a classroom with less than 6 feet of spacing.” 


The undersigned wants the district to immediately modify the October 20 classic return in the following way:


Classic teachers may postpone their individual return and remain virtual until at least the end of the semester.  Their students would also remain virtual for this class.


Classic teachers who choose to return may split their classes so 50% of the class would be in class 50% of the time. Students would work asynchronously on days not scheduled to be in-person. 


Classic teachers are welcome to return to full classic following the current district plan if they choose.

COVID-19 disproportionately affects low income communities, thus the health and safety of all students and community members is our top priority.  Vista will be jeopardizing the health and safety of all districts and communities across the county as districts are forced to open unsafely to compete with Vista.
