2020-2021 School Update
July 30, 2020
Dear Vanguard Vikings, 

This is a challenging time for families and schools. Together we are Vanguard, and I wanted to keep you informed with an update from my last email. 

With the latest development regarding the Waco-McLennan Heath District, please know that we are on schedule for returning to campus with the phase-in schedule starting August 14, 2020. Our Vision 2020 | Transition Team has met and we feel confident in the plan to open campus with Health and Wellness as a top priority.

Phase-In Opening - 2020-2021:
Thank you for your patience with phase-in days.
This will allow us to work in smaller groups and ensure that all protocols are clearly understood.

As Vanguard receives additional guidance and requirements from the State of Texas, TEA, and TAPPS, we will continue to update our plans, if needed. As always, the Health and Safety of our Faculty, Students, Families, and Community is of the utmost importance. Please know that when students come to campus, social distancing and all VCPS Re-Opening Campus Health and Wellness Guide apply. 

We encourage all families as we prepare to open to have their students practice wearing masks, understand social distancing considerations, and even start thinking about washing their hands often.

Detailed information pertaining to activities with returning to campus will be sent to our families with the weekly Friday update from our office. 

I am holding the fourth Wednesday Viking Support Line next week on August 5th, 11:00 am - 12:00 pm. Join anytime during this hour to ask questions.
