Principal's Message

Welcome to Vejar Elementary School!   

On behalf of Vejar Elementary and Walnut Valley Unified School District, I would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year.  We recognize that 2020 has been a unique time for all of us, especially as we start through distance learning.  I know that it is going to be different, but remember, this will not be forever.  It may be tough and frustrating at times, but it will get better, and through it all, I, along with our incredible Vejar teachers and staff, will be here to support you and our students.  While we want nothing more than to be back on campus with you face to face, we will continue to do our very best to stay connected and provide all families access to high-quality instruction and the resources to engage in learning from a remote location.  As you participate in your learning this year, we know it will be different, but we are here for you.  Please reach out and we will do our best to get you the tools, resources, materials, instruction, and support for your success.  

Remember, daily student attendance is the key to student success. It is important your child is in school every day to ensure a successful school year. Help us to have all of our students be at school on time, every day! If you miss school, you miss out and we miss you! 

The key to #stayingconnected will be open communication with us, your teacher, and each other.  We will provide electronic newsletters, recorded principal videos, website updates, Twitter notices, phone calls, and text messages to keep you abreast of current events at school.  You can also check this website, follow us on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter.  We have opportunities for family engagement and parent involvement in School Site Council, Community Club, English Language Advisory Committee, and district resources as well.  Be sure to take note of important people, dates, and different ways that you can become involved in your child’s education at Vejar. Please be sure that we have your correct email address at all times. I look forward to our time together throughout the year. 


Stay safe, stay healthy, stay well!    #stayingconnected

We are- VEJAR!

Vejar Values, Every Student, Every Day!
