School Policies

ATLAS Progressive Discipline Policy

Teachers work hard to re-direct student behavior when necessary and keep students in class at all times. Unfortunately, at times, a student’s behavior may be so disruptive to themselves, the class, the learning environment, or the school that further steps must be taken.

Step 1– Behavior redirection in class or on playground

Step 2– Clip down or behavior warning notice sent home

Step 3– Parent contact

Step 4– Teacher, parent, student meeting

Step 5– Principal Referral

Step 6– Parent meeting with Principal


In rare circumstances the behavior is so disruptive or harmful to other students that the child will be sent to the principal, prior to Step 5. Decisions are made at the discretion of the Teacher & Principal.

General School Reminders

Please be reminded that bringing personal items, balls, toys, or anything of value to school is not allowed.

We encourage you to send your child with a healthy snack and lunch. Please do not include candy, soda or hot cheetos.


Traffic & Parking Reminders

Safety First! We love our little school tucked back in our neighborhood, but sometimes due to its configuration, safety concerns arise. Please be sure to follow the below guidelines to ensure all students can arrive and depart safely from school.

·         When picking up children at the end of the school day, adults are asked to wait outside of the blue double doors in front of the school. The teachers will be walking students out to you.

·         Student car drop off and pickup area is along sidewalk, in front of the main entrance to school.

·         Let students out only when parked next to curb—do not Double Park.

·         Parking lot is for staff use only, do not pull in the parking lot under any circumstances.

·         Only drop students off on the side of the street nearest school. It is unsafe for students to cross in traffic, even with an adult. Use the crosswalks at end of street.

·         Please do not make U-turns on Jazmin, it is not only unsafe it backs up traffic and increases the likelihood of an accident.

If you want to walk your child to class, you must park along the fence.

A recent lawsuit against the California Department of Education (CDE) is impacting all public schools across the state, including those operated by the Ventura Unified School District.

In April 2012, two organizations, the Morgan Hill Concerned Parents Association and the Concerned Parent Association, filed a lawsuit against CDE regarding compliance with special education laws. As a part of this lawsuit, the United States District Court ordered CDE to release all data it has collected on general and special education students statewide since Jan. 1, 2008 to attorneys for the plaintiffs in the lawsuit. No data is being released to the public and extensive precautions are in place to keep the data secure. Additionally, the parties are required to either return or destroy the data at the conclusion of the lawsuit.

VUSD schools were not involved in the lawsuit and are not the subject of any of the suit's allegations. VUSD will not be disclosing any student data.

Parents and guardians who want to object to CDE's release of their child’s data to the plaintiffs' attorneys may do so by submitting a form by mail prior to April 1, 2016. Links to the form and additional information about this case are on the district and individual school web sites.
