Stay Connected!

In addition to communication to you via our websites- http://olivevistams-lausd-ca.schoolloop.com and https://sites.google.com/site/ovsteammagnet/ , we send important updates and information through parent meetings, Blackboard Connect phone messages, letters, and flyers.  You can also follow me on Twitter @Mr_Wright_11 where I will post updates and articles for parents, teachers, and students.

Much of our communication depends on you providing the school with accurate and updated contact information.  This allows us to communicate with you and your designated contacts in case of emergency and to share with you important information about your child’s academic progress.  Please contact the school immediately if there has been a change of phone number or address and to verify that we have your current contact information.  I also encourage you to list an active email account as many messages are also sent via email.

Our ability to stay connected greatly increases the web of support that is provided to each Olive Vista student.  I hope you will consider stopping by to our next Coffee with the Principal on Thursday, September 7, 2017.
