Valley Christian Schools | Week of September 2-6
Dr. Michael Tucker, a VCS Founding Father, Called Home
Dr. Michael Tucker, one of the founders of Valley Christian, was recently called home to our Lord and Savior.

Valley Christian is ever grateful for Dr. Tucker's contributions to our school over the years, especially his role in helping found a school that has now impacted thousands of students and tens of thousands of lives over 38 years.

We lift up Dr. Tucker's wife, Nancy, and the rest of his family at his passing - but celebrate with them the promise of eternal life and the tremendous impact Dr. Tucker made for God's kingdom. Praise be to God!
New VCS Volunteer Policy
As we seek to continue to keep our students safe while engaged with Valley Christian Schools - both in and out of the classroom - we have adopted a new Volunteer Policy for all individuals seeking to serve our school with their time and talents.

There are three levels of volunteering at VCS - each with different requirements to ensure student safety.

A Level 1 volunteer is a casual volunteer. They are volunteering at VCS in a supervised capacity, with little to no student interaction, for a specific purpose, and for a limited time.

A Level 2 volunteer is a leader in the High School or anyone volunteering on the K-8 campuses. A volunteer leader is someone who could reasonably be perceived as representing Valley Christian Schools while serving in their volunteer role.

A Level 3 volunteer is a “student-facing” volunteer. This volunteer comes into direct contact with and has the opportunity to be alone with students.

Please visit our website for examples and requirements of each level and the appropriate application forms.
Early Release on Friday, September 6
A reminder that all campuses have an early release on Friday, September 6.

High School and Junior High students are released at 12:30 pm. Our Elementary students are released at 1:00pm.
Transportation Changes for this Week
All buses and shuttles will run Wednesday through Friday at the same times as normal this week.

*LOCATION CHANGE* Please note that the shuttle from the high school to the junior high and elementary campuses will run from CrossRoads Nazarene Church instead of the high school campus on Wednesday through Friday due to Spiritual Emphasis Week.
