NEWS FROM NURSE WACK

Our increased mask mandate (Executive Order 181) that was initiated by Governor Roy Cooper on November 25, 2020 has been extended and remains in effect through January 29, 2021.  Please see original letter sent to VCA Community: Increased Mask Mandate

Symptom screenings from home have been effective in keeping symptomatic students and faculty from coming to school. Thank you! We have not had to turn away any students or faculty due to temperatures over 100.4. Combined with this knowledge and updated data from the CDC, temperature screenings will only be conducted on an as-needed basis starting Tuesday, January 19.

THE ACT OF GRACE CAMPAIGN
  We have now raised $492,501.18 -- thanks to our Lord and the generous spirits of the Veritas Community.

Please continue to pray for The Act of Grace!

The Conference Tournament for both teams begins this week. The Varsity Team will play Nebo Crossing Academy on Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. That match will be at Veritas!

The semi-finals and finals are set for Thursday and Saturday at Community Christian Academy. The JV Team will play Nebo Crossing on Thursday at 3:30 p.m. at Community Christian Academy in the semi-finals of the JV tournament. For Thursday and Saturday, Community Christian is allowing fans to attend, provided they are wearing masks. Good luck, ladies!


BASKETBALL
Our Middle School Basketball Teams have begun practice. The Varsity Teams will begin practicing this week. Each coach should be communicating practice times with parents. If you are not hearing from your child’s coach, please email Lee Burgess at lburgess@veritasnc.org
