Vista Charter Middle School will give admissions preference in the following order:
(1) Siblings of students currently enrolled in the school, or wards of their parents.
(2) Students who currently reside in the Los Angeles Unified School District
(3) Children of current employees and developers, not to exceed 10% of the school population.
For the current school year, and all future years, all students entering, advancing or transferring into 7th grade will need proof of an adolescent whooping cough booster immunization called (Tdap) for school in the fall.
The new school immunization law affects all students in public and private schools.
Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools, and communities against pertussis.
