School’s back in session for students and staff at Plaza Vista, Vista Verde, Westpark and Woodbury


And we’re back.

Today marks the first day of the 2014-15 school year for nearly 4,000 students enrolled at IUSD’s four year-round sites.

Plaza Vista School, Vista Verde School, Westpark Elementary and Woodbury Elementary all start up in July but take three lengthy breaks during the year. The idea is to give families the choice of an alternate calendar, but Irvine’s year-round schools still offer the same number of instructional days as IUSD’s other campuses.

Speaking of which, the first day for students on the traditional calendar is Tuesday, Sept. 2, which also marks a new chapter for IUSD with the opening of Cypress Village and Portola Springs elementary schools.

And by that time, our year-round students and staff will be looking forward to their fall recess, which starts Sept. 22.
