Hello VAPA Community! This is Dr. Edward Trimis, principal of Legacy Visual and Performing Arts High School with a few announcements.
Hola comunidad VAPA! Este es el Dr. Edward Trimis, director de Legacy Visual y Performing Arts High School con algunos anuncios.
Monday is an A-Day with Period 1 starting at 10:05 am, followed by Periods 2, 3, and Advisory H and L. Our theme for this year is VAPA Strong: Into the Light as we CREATE, INSPIRE, UNIFY, and EDUCATE.
This week we have our final textbook pick-up and registration paperwork return days. Please follow guidelines for mask-wearing and physical distancing on campus and be sure to wash your hand before you leave the house and when you return. Please also follow the schedule for when students pick-up books. 10th grade on Monday, 11th grade on Tuesday, and 12th grade on Wednesday. On Wednesday, seniors will also take their senior portraits in the MPR. Again, please follow the schedule from Fotorama and senior boys need to be sure to wear a button-down white shirt to the photo sessions.
This marks our 9th year as a school as we look forward to next year’s 10 Year Anniversary when we will celebrate a decade of providing outstanding education in academics and arts for our community and we greet a team from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges for a full accreditation visit.

This week we are pleased to start our regular online schedule with classes meeting in both synchronous (at the same time, led by a classroom teacher) and asynchronous (students working on assigned tasks at their own pace) including live instruction every day. We appreciate of the support from from the district including additional LAUSD teachers and staff who you may see in virtual classrooms or who may call homes to check in with students and parents.
While most of our students were able to lo into their classes last week, there was a small handful who had challenges. I encourage you to call the Support Helpline at (213) 443-1300 or call us a VAPA at 323-357-7531 for assistance.
Lastly, we continue to need about 10 more students to meet our recruitment goal for this year. We can still enroll new students if their current school releases them, but that window will close soon. Our deadline is September 1.
Please go to www.vapalegacy.net and bit.ly/vapaonline for information and updates.
Have a great week and I'll see you at school, online!
Dr. Edward Trimis, Principal
