Panther Press Special Edition

Weekly Newsletter - Mar. 3, 2021

Dear Panther Families-

We hope this newsletter finds you all doing well. Now that people are beginning to receive vaccinations (teachers and educators are among the latest group to receive vaccines), we are seeing signs of recovery and a return to normalcy. We are very excited to announce that all of our classic students will be returning to campus one day per week starting next week! This special edition newsletter is designed to provide information that will make this transition more understandable.

We also understand that there have been numerous changes to student schedules during the past year. The VHS staff sincerely acknowledges the potential issues caused by another change and will continue to work with our students and families to navigate this challenging time together. In the meantime, please continue to keep the lines of communication open with teachers and other staff members. Thank you and take good care.
