VCA OPEN HOUSE

This year our Open House is unique in that instead of having an evening where all families are encouraged to "drop-in," we are requesting that families sign-up to visit campus over a couple of days.

During this time, Grammar and Logic families can meet their teachers, drop off school supplies, decorate lockers (Logic), shop the clothes closet, and enjoy a sweet treat! Families with 3+ children, feel free to sign up for 2 slots back-to-back.

No matter where your children have classes, please come to the main front door so that we can provide a health screening before entering campus. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Please read this letter from our Hot Lunch chef, Angela Esmond, regarding food safety and our new food line processes.

Parents, We are so grateful to be able to continue to provide our Hot Lunch service at Veritas! Please refer back to the instructions here (also in the July mailer) on how to set up your account.

The August*/September Hot Lunch order window will close at 11 p.m. on August 24th. We recommend setting a reminder on your phone so that you don't miss it.

*Please note, Hot Lunch is only served for one day in August!

If you have any trouble, please notify cpritz@veritasnc.org or kcoots@veritasnc.org

GRAMMAR SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS


1) Due to the influx of applications received in the last several weeks, grammar school class lists have not yet been finalized. We know that this impacts your signing up for Hot Lunch and hope to have them finalized by next Monday, August 17. 

2) We know that finding the face covering option that is best for your grammar school student can be a challenge. We encourage you to try several types and find one that works for your student. In addition to masks, gaiter-type coverings that secure around the neck may be a good option since they are hard to lose and easy to wash.  
LOGIC SCHOOL PE ANNOUNCEMENT

PE classes will look a little different as we start the new school year, but will still be a great chance during the week to enjoy exercise and fun together! All grades will be meeting outside as much as possible and social distancing measures will be employed as we engage in activities. When meeting in the gym, students will be engaging in activities in spaces more than 6 feet apart from each other.

Logic School students will not be changing into PE clothes as the locker rooms are not usable under current restrictions. Students will participate in their school uniforms or are welcome to wear a VCA t-shirt under their uniforms and remove uniform tops during PE. We will communicate when and how PE uniforms will be required as circumstances change.

Please contact Coach Chris with any questions!
