Attention 8th Grade Families!

ATTENTION 8TH GRADE FAMILIES: It's hard to believe, but in just a few short months our 8th grade students will begin planning for their transition off to high school. For the first time, the entire eighth grade class of Sierra Vista Junior High School will automatically transfer to Canyon High School for 9th grade without any action needed on the part of parents or guardians.  If your student is currently enrolled at Sierra Vista, they may matriculate straight to Canyon High School even if they are on a transfer to Sierra Vista.  If Canyon High School is where you would like your student to attend there is nothing more that you need to do at this point.

If you prefer for your 8th grader to matriculate to his or her neighborhood high school (this means that you are on a transfer to SV) INSTEAD of Canyon High School, please email our Sierra Vista Registrar, Mrs. Diane Hormann at or call her at (661) 252-3113 extension 2027 , and let her know that this is your preference and the change will be made.

(Please note: If your student is enrolled at SV in a regional programs, their student's high school placement will be discussed and finalized during their upcoming Spring IEP.  Your student's Case Manager will reach out to you regarding the time and date of your student's matriculation IEP.  These meeting generally take place in March or April.)

Thanks for all you do to support your child and Sierra Vista. We appreciate you and your family. Although it is super exciting that your child is growing up and moving off to high school, we certainly will miss having them at Sierra Vista and have so enjoyed the opportunity to be part of your family and to have had the pleasure of getting to know your student.  We are so proud of them.
