We're Having a VFES Parade!

In an effort to wrap up the school year, Vienna-Finley faculty and staff members are hosting a drive-thru parade in the VFES car line from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 21st. Parents/guardians, students, and their family members are welcome to drive through the car line to wave at the teachers and other school employees.

We will be modeling the current expected practices by using social distancing and not exchanging items with students. Please do not exit your vehicle or bring items for VFES employees.

We look forward to seeing you Thursday evening!

Continuous Learning Plans for May

Our final round of non-traditional instruction runs through Wednesday, May 20th.

If your child has been completing work digitally, the final three days of lessons will be available via Canvas by 2:00 p.m. on Friday, May 15th. Please make sure you are using your time wisely during this final few days of school because we are collecting iPads on May 21st and 22nd.

Teachers will continue to be available to answer questions for all students via phone/email from 10:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. from May 18th through May 20th.

Meals are also available every Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. until noon at each of the six Scott 2 schools. Food is also available from 11:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. at 13 remote sites throughout the county. A map is located on the Scott 2 website as well as the Vienna-Finley Facebook page.

Please call the VFES office at (812) 752-8925 if you have any questions.

Continuous Learning Grades

Scott 2 students in grades K-8 will be graded on a pass/fail basis for the last quarter of the school year. Teachers will enter a weekly score for each subject area from their continuous learning work. Students will earn a 10, 8, 6, or 0 based on the amount of engagement they demonstrate related to completing their assigned tasks each week.

Scores will be entered in Harmony each week for students who are completing work digitally.

Scores will be entered in Harmony the week after packets are released to the teachers following our periodic packet pick up/drop off for students who are completing work via paper/pencil.

The VFES Walk-a-thon has been postponed until a later date (possibly in the fall).

If you have collected money for the Walk-a-thon, you can hold it until registration dates prior to the 2020-2021 school year. PTO representatives will have a table at registration and will be available to collect the money at that time.

PTO officers are in contact with the online donation company to get those funds rolled over to the new Walk-a-thon date.
