School Expectations

What We Expect

At Visitacion Valley Middle School, our Falcons are expected to be respectful, safe, and responsible. This makes everyone feel happy and prepares students to learn. We need all students help to keep our school a safe and supportive place.  Students are rewarded for their actions, through falcon claws, honor roll breakfasts, and raffles. Students also can be selected to be the Student of the Month, and their homeroom can win the Homeroom Award each month.

Electronics Policy

  1. Remind the student of the Off and Away policy and allow him/her the opportunity to self correct.

  2. Use P.R.OM.P.T. to allow students time to refocus attention on appropriate classroom tasks.

  3. Contact a parent if the item becomes an ongoing distraction to student learning.

  4. Confiscate the item only if absolutely necessary, turn into counseling (labeled with student’s name) if you do not have a place to secure it in your classroom. No “snatching!”
