    Welcome to Simi Valley Schools

    At Simi Valley Schools, we value every family passing through our schools and programs. It's so important to us that we've made it Our Promise to our community, that we will inspire each and every student to succeed in school, career and life.

    Our 28 school sites offer opportunities for every child, starting with preschool at Justin Early Learners Academy and then into one of our 18 elementary schools, three middle and four high schools. Adults seeking continuing education options will find exciting courses and certificate programs at our Simi Institute for Careers & Education. We even have a thriving homeschool/independent study program available through Monte Vista School for Kindergarten through 12th grade. Our Guide to Simi Valley Schools will provide a solid overview of all of our schools and what they have to offer our community. 

    The Simi Valley Unified School District is one of Ventura County's largest school districts, and it serves the city of Simi Valley and the unincorporated Ventura County areas adjacent to the city's borders. Our size gives us the incredible advantage to offer many diverse programs and courses to meet the needs and interests of every student coming to us. Each school is distinctive and while all of our K-12 schools follow state mandated curriculum guidelines, each also offers more, through its specialized courses, programs and/or extra-curricular activities.

    Our website contains pages and links filled with school and program information, as do the websites for each school within our District. All of our friendly, knowledgeable staff are available to answer questions and give tours of their schools for interested families. You just have to call the school you're interested in and ask. 

    We hope we've inspired you to look more closely at Simi Valley Schools, if you're researching opportunities for your family. If you're already with us, thank you for being an important part of our family.

    OUR PROMISE

     

    The Simi Valley Unified School District offers the families of Simi Valley and the surrounding area a vibrant portfolio of educational choices built on a common sense of community, and the common purpose of inspiring each and every student to succeed in school, career and life.

    We believe that the best student outcomes are achieved when we provide:

    • Rigorous academic programs, relevant to a diverse and changing world;
    • High expectations that respect the differences in our students;
    • Exceptional instruction in an innovative learning environment;
    • Opportunities for our students to build confidence and strong character;
    • Participation of everyone in our students’ success.

    We are driven, proud and passionate about the personal and intellectual success of each and every student.

    No matter where the future takes you, the road to success runs through Simi Valley.

    Information & Resources

    Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!
    Dear Simi Valley Schools Community: Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! We hope that this message finds you and your family healthy. Wednesday, August 11, is the first day of school for Simi Valley Schools. This year we are excited to finally have our schools fully open and operating with normal schedules, albeit with some guidelines in place for the continuing pandemic concerns. I want to sincerely thank our families for their unending patience as we sort through the ongoing changes and clarifications to the guidelines. I also want to commend our entire staff for their continued professionalism and dedication to our students. They have performed amazing feats during the most challenging conditions, and they have done so with kindness and compassion.In our last message, we provided a link to the Family Resource Guide (in English and Spanish). This guide provides an overview of what the 2021-2022 school year will look like on our campuses. You can access an updated Family Resource Guide HERE. It is also attached to this email.As of today, we need to remind you of the following (the points that have an * were changed or clarified on last week by the California Department of Public Health, and may be different from what we were told in July). Please understand that we have to follow state and county guidelines regarding wearing masks and other measures.·       Masks must be worn indoors by all people — adults and students — regardless of vaccination status. Those who refuse to wear masks indoors will not be allowed inside campus buildings. Parents of students who refuse to mask will be called to pick up their children. Please remember that Monte Vista School, our independent study school, is an option for families concerned about masking. For more information, go to https://www.montevista.simivalleyusd.org.·       Students will be able to remove their masks when they are outside, for recess or passing periods, and/or while eating. Students are welcome to keep their masks on outdoors as well.·       Schools will still do some social distancing when possible.*·       Visitors on campuses are severely limited. *·       We ask that every family screen their children for possible Covid symptoms (fever over 99.5, vomiting, etc…) before bringing them to school each day. We will not have temperature screenings at the gate this year, but a child who is not feeling well will be sent to the office where their temperature will be taken. Please do not send children to school who have any Covid symptoms.·       If your child stays home because of an illness or a concern about possible Covid infection, our teachers will continue to work with them to get them assignments and classwork.*·       As of now, all sports and extracurricular activities will be conducted with the same mask guidelines as above. There are no guidelines for testing at this time.*·       Schools will take measures to create social distancing as much as possible during mealtimes.As we continue to say, these guidelines can change at any time. We will update our families with any changes as they come in.Even if we are not completely back to normal in terms of masks and social distancing, we are still very excited to have your children back on our campuses. Our teachers and staff have worked hard to create a welcoming, nurturing and fun learning experience for the year to come. We have many additional resources and staff in place to help with any transition issues and also to help “catch up” those students who may need the additional support. It will be a busy year, but it will be a successful year for all of our students.With the first days of school come children walking to school and traffic congestion. I urge all of us to please very extremely careful when driving in and around our campuses. There will be many children who have not physically been on our campuses for more than a year and extra caution is required when driving around them. Please remember that the speed limit is 25 miles per hour in school zones when school is in session. The Simi Valley Police Department will have extra patrols on duty to ensure the safety of our students and other drivers. We thank them for their commitment to our safety.As we have done for the last four years, we want to encourage our families to celebrate their first day of school, regardless grade or age. For those who are willing, we ask that for any pictures of your children that you post to your social media of choice (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram), that you include the hashtag #SimiSchoolsFirstDay2021 on your posts. Also, if you’re willing, make those posts “public” so we can all see and share our amazing children next week. To see other posts, enter #SimiSchoolsFirstDay2021 into the search bar of your social media account to see all of the posts using this hashtag. In this way, we can all enjoy our community’s first day of school through your photos.Thank you for trusting us with your children. We are proud to partner with an amazing community of families. Collectively we have the ability to make this an incredible experience for all of our students. Our students have proven many times over that they are resilient and able to thrive regardless of the limitations placed in front of them. With your encouragement, they will continue to learn and grow successfully.At Simi Valley Schools, our students will go from here to anywhere!Dr. Jason PeplinskiSuperintendentSimi Valley Unified School District
