VBC Information for Seniors

Seniors will report to the East Hall of the VBC by 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday, May 24th and return to the same East Hall by 2:00 p.m. that afternoon. You should enter the front of the building, and you will be required to walk through the metal detectors. We will line up in the East Hall and then process over to the Arena at 2:30 p.m. Do not leave any belongings behind in the East Hall. When graduation is over we will exit out the Skate Lobby doors (between rows 218-221) to pick up diplomas, and you will not be allowed to return inside. There will be no videos sold of the ceremony, but it will be live streamed and remain available after. You will be directed to the site for viewing. Make sure to review the dress code for graduation, as it will be strictly enforced with NO EXCEPTIONS. As always, if you need assistance with clothing needs, please see a staff member BEFORE arriving at the VBC. We will not have options there.

Graduation Live-Streaming Information

Graduations will be streamed live on the district website, and the recording will remain on YouTube afterward. Click HERE to access the MCSS website.

Yearbook Distribution Update

The yearbooks are estimated to arrive in late June. Once the books are delivered to campus, a distribution event will be organized and advertised.

Check-Out Procedures:

*Please go to door #44 at the back of the school (near the Trojan statue and courtyard) for all check outs. No check outs are done through the front office. Remembering this will save you some time when you arrive to check out your student.

  • Students drop check-out notes in the basket on the attendance clerk’s desk before 8:30 in the morning.
  • Notes will be verified by the attendance clerk prior to the time of check-out.
  • Check-out notes need the following information:
    • Student’s first and last name (printed)
    • Time of check-out
    • Reason for check-out
    • Parent’s signature
    • Parent’s contact information

Without a parent note, no student will be allowed to check out unless a parent/guardian comes to the Attendance Office to check out the student. Parent notes must be turned in to the Attendance Office before 8:30 a.m. No phone or email checkouts will be allowed. The only exception will be if the school nurse determines that a student is sick and needs to go home. The school nurse will then contact the parent/guardian and the Attendance Office.

*Please remember that we do not allow walk-in check outs after 3:00 p.m.
