Dear Parents,

Today, is the end of the 3rd Quarter!  Where has time gone?  We will send Report Cards home on Friday, March 22nd.  This is the quarter that we will report to you any need for summer tutoring, should your child's grades indicate.  As always, please contact your child's teacher if your have questions.

As we approach this long weekend, I pray you find time to do things as a family that are special to you.  Our days are so busy, time just slips away.  Consider redeeming some quality family time!

Blessings,

Dorace A. Lynch

Parent Alert!

~ Help Us to Keep our Students Safe~

While driving on campus, please be aware of the following:

  • Speed Limit is 5 miles per hour
  • Obey all traffic signs
  • Watch for VCS staff directing traffic
  • Refrain from using cell phones or playing loud music
  • Please do not leave your car unattended in carpool
  • NO PARKING in the carpool lanes or in front of the MP

Student Safety is # 1

Please do not drop students off at the front by the elementary office.  This is not an approved drop off.  You may, of course, park and walk your students into the courtyard.  

When participating in carpool for drop off or pick up, please remember to be patient as you proceed. Cutting in and out of the line increases the possibility of accidents.

Please thank and support each carpool worker who, rain or shine, works the traffic on campus.  Your support is so needed!


Helpful Hints!

Personal Electronic Devices

Elementary students are not allowed to carry cell phones while on school grounds.  If a student must bring a cell phone or other electronic device, he/she should bring the device to the elementary office upon arrival at school. The student may pick up the device before going home.

If a student is found with an electronic device while at school, it will be confiscated and taken to the elementary office.  Parents, may pick it up when they pick their student from school. 

To view the policy in it's entirety please check the Parent/Student Handbook, pages 22 & 23.
