Looking for a Locker?
Lockers are assigned to students during the first weeks of school. It is the student’s responsibility to provide a lock and to maintain a clean locker area. Monta vista HS is not responsible for lost or stolen items. Since the lockers are located outside of secured areas, items left overnight and on weekends may be subject to theft or vandalism. Lockers may be subject to search by school personnel. Students who do not follow the process of applying for a locker will lose their locker privileges; locks will be cut and contents removed from lockers that are not officially assigned.

Please fill out the chalk school locker form and your locker will be assigned to you. If you have any questions please see Mrs. Mandac in the ASB office.
The PSAT test is scheduled for Saturday, October 14, 2017 (students should plan to arrive by 7:45 a.m. for 8:00 a.m. testing).

PSAT testing is for Juniors and Sophomores only. Freshman may not take the PSAT test at MVHS. Cost for the PSAT test is $28.00, payable by cash or check (please make checks out to FUHSD). Registration and payment for the test will be handled at the ASB desk with Mr. Wong in the main office.

Registration dates are as follows:
  • Juniors – September 5th thru September 22nd
  • Sophomores - September 18th thru September 22nd
