FROM THE NURSE'S CORNER

  • Starting Monday, November 9, Logic School will begin to rotate classes throughout the day’s schedule and teachers will remain in their classrooms. Students will remain in the same assigned cohort as they have throughout the school year. Please see this attachment for more information: Logic School Rotation
  • If someone living in your household is being tested for COVID-19 due to symptoms, please have all students in the household remain home until PCR test results are confirmed negative. 
  • If someone in your household is confirmed positive for COVID-19, please keep all students living in this household home until a return-to-school date has been determined by a combination of the health department and the school nurse.
  • It will continue to be difficult to discern potential COVID-19 symptoms from common colds, flu, allergies and various viruses- especially busy mornings getting children to school. Remember to keep your child home when in question and allow time and/or physician advice for further guidance. See: Symptom Guidance 
THE ACT OF GRACE CAMPAIGN

    We have now raised $460,594.00.

Please continue to pray for The Act of Grace!
NEW BLOG POST

"Every Thanksgiving rolls around and you will read it or hear it at least once, 'for the Christian, Thanksgiving cannot be relegated to only one day.' We then generally respond with an amen and maybe a day or two of additional thanks. This year, we can do something about it..."

Dr. Woods has a new blog post to share, "Giving Thanks ALL Month."

It was a busy day of service on Friday!
The entire VCA community worked on various projects to support the non-profits and organizations we are pledging to serve this school year. It was a beautiful sight to see Pre-K through 12th grade students serving together to better our community and school.
