Principal's Message

Hello Alta Vista Students, Parents, and Staff!


Welcome to the start of the 2019-2020 school year!  I am very excited to start my first full year as the principal of Alta Vista.  It has been a pleasure and honor to serve your community and I appreciate being a part of the Alta Vista community. For the families that are new, AV is truly a special place.  


While everyone is off on summer break, it was time to upgrade and improve our campus.  First, we have some new permanent play structures installed in the kinder/preschool play area.  We now have Butterfly steps and a sound wall with drums installed. There was also turf installed under the entire play area.  We also had 11 AC units replaced. We received nine classrooms worth of student desks and chairs. Finally, we had three bottle filling stations installed throughout the campus.  All of this would not have been possible without our amazing Board of Education, Dr. Keller and our Maintenance Department. 


I look forward to seeing you all and hearing about the great summer adventures.  Thank you for working together with all of us at Alta Vista to ensure academic success for all of our students.
