PRINCIPAL'S POINTS

Parents,


The UIL six week grade check is coming up next week Friday, September 30th. Any student involved in UIL activities will be ineligible if not passing on this date. Parent portal login is restored, and I encourage students and parents to start monitoring their grades. Please contact the front office if you need parent portal login information. Please be patient with us as we work through the alert system portion of parent portal. We will keep everyone updated through email and future newsletter on the status of parent portal alerts.


School spirit and success is at an all time high and I thank you for all your support and dedication to the students at VAHS.

CHROMEBOOK EXPECTATIONS

There are several issues regarding Chromebooks that students and parents need to remember:

  • No stickers or markings of any kind are to be put on the Chromebook.
  • If you drop the Chromebook, the screen will likely be damaged; it costs $75.
  • If you drop the Chromebook and the case chips, it invalidates the warranty and will result in fines.
  • If you lose the Chromebook, you are responsible to replace it at the district’s cost ($185).
  • If you lose the case, you will be fined $15 to replace it.
  • If you lose the charger, you will be fined $25 to replace it.
  • If you are having any difficulty with your Chromebook, bring it to the library so we can determine what is wrong with it.
  • Bear in mind that the Chromebook is district property, not yours. If you damage it or lose it, you must pay for its repair or replacement.

PARENT PORTAL ALERT ISSUES

Due to a system glitch, the parent portal alert system in not up to function at this time. If a student/parent is expecting an email or text alert, they will not receive it. However, the current login information is still correct when a person goes to sign into the system (either through mobile or web based site).

Everyone will be advised as soon as the situation is corrected.
