Forms to select your time slot will go out to students this week. Seniors will receive the form on Thursday at 8 a.m. and juniors will receive the form on Friday at 8 a.m. If you are bringing a guest who is a current VHS or WCC junior or senior, only one person will need to complete the form to reserve your time.

Our After-Prom committee has been working with our PTO and Student Council to make Prom 2021 extra special. Door prizes will be given throughout each time slot. All ticketed VHS and WCC students will be automatically entered into the prize drawing! You must be present at the time your name is called to win.

Prom is just two weeks away. We are still in need of many more parent chaperones! This year the dance will be divided into two sessions on Saturday, April 17 between 8:00-11:00 p.m. Please sign up to help chaperone by clicking here! If you have any questions or would like to sign up by email, please contact Jennifer Hayes at Thank you!
