News Flash: Vista del Lago High School at Capacity

Posted on: March 22, 2019

vista del lago

The Folsom Cordova Unified School District sent out a bulletin this afternoon stating that enrollment at Vista del Lago High School is at max capacity, and any new students moving into the Vista attendance boundary will have to enroll at Folsom High for the 2019/2020 school year.

Students may be placed on a waitlist, but there is no guarantee they will be cleared to go to Vista.

The problem is that Vista del Lago was built for a smaller population, and there is no room for growth.

Folsom High, on the other hand, has plenty of slots for enrollment, and as it sits on 65 acres, there is room for development and/or temporary classrooms as needed.

Note that Folsom High is rated 10 out of 10 by Great Schools, and has an outstanding record for academics (2018 Academic Decathlon Champs), sports (4 time state champion football team) and the Folsom High Jazz Band has been consistently ranked among the best in the country. So, the kids won’t lose anything by going there. It just may be a little further for some.

To enforce the new policy, the district will be verifying addresses to make sure that kids are going to the schools they are supposed to go to.

There is talk of redrawing the boundaries for next year, but nothing concrete thus far.

Heard Around Folsom… Car Show, Wine Tasting and more…

Posted on: March 22, 2019

It’s been a while since I’ve done a ‘Heard Around Folsom’.  Let’s not waste time. Here are some random and cool events coming up in and around Folsom… Cars and Coffee returns to Palladio for their weekly car show. See everything from Model A’s to muscle cars, from 8 to 10 every Saturday… Visconti’s Restaurant is going to be honored as Folsom’s Family Business of the Year at the Folsom Chamber of Commerce‘s annual awards luncheon. Visconti’s is the place where everyone is treated like family, and the food is great. Come celebrate and honor our community leaders at this annual event… The current exhibit at 48 Natoma, Folsom’s public art gallery, is called ‘3 Women Photographers’. See the unique perspectives of these three, featuring their best wildlife and nature shots. Perhaps stealing the show, the community gallery will feature artwork created by the animals of the Folsom Zoo Sanctuary. The public is invited to celebrate both exhibits at the free opening reception on Friday, March 29, 2019 from 6:00 to 8:00, with refreshments, wine and live guitar music by Gabe Becker. As an added treat, we also anticipate that several smaller animal artists from the zoo (perhaps the Funk the skunk and Boss Hog the hedgehog) will be present at the reception for visitors to meet and watch them in-action painting during the reception. The painting will then be available for purchase!.. Got the need for speed? Head over to the Prairie City SVRA March 22 and 23, for the  Metalcloak Ultra 4 Stampede. Over 100 drivers are expected to compete over a 2 mile lap course, completely visible to spectators, filled with rock obstacles, tight turns and go-fast sections. This is a great, family-friendly spectator event. If you’ve ever wanted to see ULTRA4 racing in person, you won’t want to miss this unique event!.. for something a bit mellower (earlier in the day anyway)  Sip into Spring on the Placer Wine Trail. On March 23 and 24, your ticket gets you a souvenir glass, and complimentary food and wine tastings at participating wineries on the trail…  That’s it for now. That ought to keep you busy. Look for my podcast in the near future. Have a topic, tip or event we should know about? Drop me a line.
