My School Bucks is the way to pay online for your student's lunch. You can also pay the cafeteria manager in person. Please note: If you are going to pay using my School Bucks, you need to allow 24 hours for the system to apply it to the account. Your student's account will follow them to each progressive school they attend in Vacaville Unified. For example: Cooper to Vaca Pena to Will C Wood. Also, My School Bucks will notify when your account balance is below $10.00. It's a great system! Call the office at 453-6210 to get your student's permanent id. number, you will need it to sign up for our school lunch program's automatic payment system: Click for MySchoolBucks



August 21 Eclipse Resources!

On August 21 all of America will experience a solar eclipse. Some areas will witness a total eclipse (when the moon entirely covers the sun); other regions will witness a partial eclipse.

The Bay Area will experience a 76% eclipse, with the moon beginning to cover the sun at 9:01 am, reaching maximum coverage at 10:15 am, and then moving away from the sun at 11:37 am.  

Some schools have made plans for students to go outside and watch the eclipse using special solar eclipse glasses and/or cards for pinhole viewing. Please check your school's website to see what kinds of activities are planned.  

If you want to send your child to school with glasses for viewing the eclipse, please be sure to provide designated solar eclipse glasses. Staring at even a sliver of the sun without adequate protection can cause permanent eye damage. (You can find more information about choosing safe glasses on the American Astronomical Society's website.)

The following websites have lots of layperson-friendly eclipse information to share with your families and friends:
