Parents and Guardians of Preschool Students,

When the 2019-2020 school year began, we were filled with great anticipation.  We could not anticipate the unprecedented challenges from a global pandemic that resulted in statewide school closures or the transition to learning from home.  Despite the unanticipated challenges, I encourage our staff, students, and families to focus on the growth that each student made this school year and the positive memories that we made before any of us even heard the words Coronavirus or social distancing.  

Although we are not able to hold a large ceremony in the school gymnasium for our graduating preschool students, we will mail a Preschool Graduation Diploma and small gift to each of our students that will attend kindergarten next school year.  As we conclude this school year and plan for the upcoming school year, I ask that you review the important information below:

We will not hold a traditional Preschool or Kindergarten Round-Up this year.  We will mail registration packets home for each of our current 3 year old students for the 4 year old program and our current 4 year old students for kindergarten.  When your child’s registration packet is mailed back to Mountain Vista, a welcome kit filled with surprises, activities and small gifts will be mailed to your child.
We will gladly mail “new student” registration packets to any incoming children that are not currently enrolled in our preschool program.  If you know of a child that is interested in enrolling in our preschool program or will be 5 years old by September 1, 2020 and needs to register for kindergarten, please encourage their parent/guardian to email Barb Frost, School Secretary at  
We are committed to providing tuition-free, quality preschool programming to our community.  In order to continue to invest in early childhood education and cover the rising costs of operating our preschool program, Mountain Vista Preschool will be a 4 year old program for the 2020-2021 school year.  Any 3 year old students currently enrolled in our preschool program will be given priority placement in our 4 year old program for the upcoming school year.
If you have a child that will be 3 years old during the 2020-2021 school year, we look forward to registering your child when they are 4 years old for the 2021-2022 school year!  

I thank you for choosing the Oracle Elementary School District and Mountain Vista Preschool for your child’s early childhood education experience.  I encourage you to follow Mountain Vista K-8 School on Facebook for regular updates this summer and I look forward to seeing you and your child when the 2020-2021 school year begins.
