Principal's Welcome Message
Dear Valley View Families,
Welcome to the greatest elementary school in the world! We are eager to spend this school year with you.
Safety is always a priority. Our district has provided each school site with the necessary safety and sanitation resources needed. Our classrooms and our entire campus are equipped with air purifiers, water bottle filling stations, and each evening the campus is sanitized using Clorox 360 machines. Valley View will continue to have the support of the Riverside Police Department and our assigned School Resource Officer.
We will be communicating through ParentSquare. Using this tool helps to create a clear path of communication for families and all district and school staff. Please accept the invitation emailed to you and login via the Parent Square website or the free app for your phone or tablet.
Because of your positive presence and strong involvement, and the commitment from our staff, we continue to make Valley View the Greatest Elementary School in the World! We are looking forward to a continued partnership with our amazing Viking families as we work together to educate, empower and prepare all scholars for college or career!
We are looking forward to a rewarding and memorable school year!
Mrs. Vaughan Principal & Mr. Anaya, Assistant Principal
