Sierra Vista High School

Welcome Sierra Vista Families and Students!

WELCOME BACK 2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR!  Let's make it a great year! Even though we are continuing on distance learning, please know I am checking email and voicemail regularly.   Email me if you have any questions or concerns. We are here for you! Please take care of yourself, remain calm, practice positive self-talk, use healthy coping strategies and together we will get through this!***



My name is Mrs. Allen and welcome to my page! This is only my 3rd year as the School Psychologist for Alternative Education (Sierra Vista and Frontier High School) and hard to believe, my 25th year in the profession! I have a huge heart and dedication to our students and families. My everyday role is working with students, families, teachers, counselors, and administrators in supporting students’ ability to learn.  Teens face challenges from time to time that impact learning such as managing emotions, social relationships, and making tough decisions.  There are many factors that may affect how a student progresses academically, socially, behaviorally and emotionally.  Primarily, I work closely with staff and families to support students with unique learning needs that requiring special education services to make educational progress. 


If your child is a general education student (not receiving any special education services), and you are concerned he/she may require additional supports or interventions at school, please contact his/her school counselor. 


What advice would I give to my "High School Self"?:

Believe in YOU!  Don’t be afraid to make mistakes.  LEARN from your mistakes. Most important - Never give up!

Starting Monday, April 20, the District will shift to a two-day meal service and implement new distribution guidelines:
  • Meals will be distributed to children 18 and younger from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Mondays (which will cover meals for Monday and Tuesday) and Wednesdays (which will cover meals for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) at Cal High, La Serna, Pioneer, Santa Fe and Whittier high schools and the Sierra Education Center.
  • To ensure meals are prioritized for Whittier Union students, families are encouraged to pick up meals at the beginning of the distribution window.
  • It is recommended that all students be in the car. Parents who cannot bring their children must show the student’s ID and will be limited on the number of meals they receive.
As part of the directives issued by county public health officials, members of the public must wear face coverings when picking up meals.
