Social Media class for parents: Wednesday, June 1st, 6:30 PM at Educational Services Center, 401 Nut Tree Rd. Vacaville in the Board room.

VUSD and the Vacaville Police Department are hosting a free class to help parents learn about current trends, aps, devices capabilities and dangers that face our kids. 

RECENT  NEWS: A New York state man was arrested by federal authorities following an investigation by Vacaville police that included a then 12-year-old victim in Vacaville. Homeland Security agents arrested Robert J. Garneau, 21, of Warwick, New York on charges of online child exploitation.

As social media trends change day to day and technology advancements do the same, keeping up with devices and social media can be challenging for parents. Even parents who are up on social media might be surprised about what aps are now available and what kids can be exposed to.


Vacaville PAL and Vacaville Community Services can help!

S. P. I. C. E. Parent Information Meeting for Potential New Families

Markham's Two-Way Immersion Program has been developing bilingual children for more than 20 years. If you are the parent of an incoming kindergartener and are considering giving your child the gift of a second language, plan on attending this vital informational meeting held by SPICE Coordinator Luci Del Rio and Principal Manolo Garcia, TUESDAY, APRIL 26TH, 6 P.M. at Markham Elementary School.  Our program offers children in Vacaville the opportunity to learn to read, write, and communicate fluently in both Spanish and English.  Children that complete seven years in the program become bilingual and biliterate in a rigorous academic environment that challenges all learners.
