Greetings! Enjoy our Saints News!
HEAD OF SCHOOL MUSINGS
Spring sports officially began on Monday. Yes, spring is almost here, on March 19th to be exact.

For a school our size, I’m incredibly proud of how many sports we offer (10 varsity girls’ and boys’ teams) and the high percentage of Saints who participate in at least one sport each school year.

For example, this Spring more than half of our student body will be on the track and field team (50+) or girls’ soccer team (20+) rosters. What’s also impressive are the amazingly talented spring coaches we have - Track and Field: Jen and Scott Sticksel, JJ Cunningham, Barry Donoho, and Dan Mysnyk; and Girls’ Soccer: Barb and Rob Wilson.

Apart from VCHS Athletics, I’m also proud of our student athletes (22 as of this week) who will be competing in programs at other valley high schools. Those sports include baseball, boys’ and girls’ lacrosse, and girls’ tennis. 

As we celebrate the launch of spring sports our boys’ basketball team competes on Friday and Saturday for a District Championship title and a berth to the State Tournament.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our best defense against the spread of viruses, including flu and Coronavirus, is prevention. By following these recommendations, together we can reduce the risk of viral infections at VCHS:
  • Keep your student from coming to school, and contact your doctor if he or she is experiencing any symptoms. If your child has a fever over 100.0, keep them home until they are fever free for 24 hours without medication.
  • Practice good hygiene techniques like: 
  • Frequently washing your hands for at least 20 seconds or using at least a 60% alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available 
  • Covering your mouth and nose when you cough or sneeze with a tissue
  • Refraining from sharing food and drinks
  • Avoiding close contact with others who are sick
  • Wiping down frequently touched surfaces
  • We are also routinely wiping desks and common surfaces with disinfectant to provide a clean and safe learning environment
We will continue to monitor the information issued by reliable sources such as the  Centers for Disease Control Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment , and  Eagle County , among others.

If you would like to learn more about the college admission process - The Truth About College Admissions: A Family Guide to Getting In and Staying Together, is a great read with helpful and realistic insights. The book was written by Rick Clark (Director of Undergraduate Admissions at Georgia Institute of Technology and Brennan Barnard (Admissions Program Manager at Making Caring Common at Harvard Graduate School of Education) as a resource for families who, Barnard said, wish to approach the admissions experience in a thoughtful and balanced way guided by unity and purpose, not games and status.
