Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I hope this message finds you and your family well. We hope you were able to make memories with your family this summer. Unfortunately, we have been faced with a spike in Covid-19 cases all across the country. We were hoping to be at a different place with our battle against this virus. Please continue to take all precautions to keep you and your loved ones safe.

We are looking forward to this school year and providing as close to a normal school experience for our students. At the present time, we are restricted to hosting large in person events and limiting campus access to VUSD employees and students, and all persons on campus wearing masks indoors. We will communicate updates with safety as they arise.

Our PTA has done an amazing job of hosting drive thru and dinner nights to keep our sense of community. Please join me in welcoming our PTA President, Maureen Shertzer. Maureen is eager to do the important work it takes to build community and fundraise for Will Rogers but she will need help. We hope you consider joining our PTA and consider signing up to help organize an event. Please reach out to Maureen at

As the school year begins, please be conscious about our before and after school traffic. Please remember to practice safety when picking up and dropping off students. This includes parking and using our crosswalks to keep you and your child(ren) safe. Our loading zone areas flow smoothly when they are used for drop-off.  These are located in the front of the school and in the staff parking lot. If you would like to park and walk to drop off or pick up your child, we have parking spots in our staff parking for you to use. Please be courteous to our neighbors and Do Not Block our neighbor's driveways or double park to drop-off/pick-up your children. Please exercise patience so our campus and surrounding areas are safe for our students and families.
