    GRADUATION

    We want to honor and celebrate the work of our Vicente and Briones Seniors. While it remains uncertain as to when we may be able to hold a gathering like graduation, we want to do everything we can to prepare for a celebration. We are tentatively holding the following dates for an in-person graduation ceremony...

    June 25 at 6pm

    July 23 at 6pm

    August 6 at 6pm

    We will approach each date with the hope of having the graduation. If it is not permitted, we'll move to the next day we've reserved, and so on. If we are unable to hold the actual graduation ceremony by the last date reserved, then we will use that date for any sort of alternative/virtual graduation ceremony. Stay tuned...

    If you have any questions, please contact Mrs. O'Connor at loconnor@martinez.k12.ca.us

    2020-2021 SCHOOL YEAR!

    For those Briones and Vicente students wishing to return for the 2020-2021 school year, you don't need to do anything at this point! We will automatically save a seat for current students for the upcoming school year. Once we get closer to the start of the school year, families will need to complete the annual online update in Aeries. More information will be provided in August.

    If your child will be leaving Vicente or Briones, or leaving to another school district please contact Principal Lori O'Connor at loconnor@martinez.k12.ca.us

    If you are interested in having your child attend Vicente or Briones, please contact Principal Lori O'Connor at loconnor@martinez.k12.ca.us

    While we don't know what the start of school will look like we will certainly keep you posted as our school district receives guidance on the shelter in place and social distancing orders. We do hope to get to see everyone soon!
