The Dragon's Lair

Welcome Back

Welcome Back

Hello Dragon Family,

It is with great honor that I am writing the first Dragon Lair's update as your new Valley Falls High School Principal. The faculty and staff at VFHS have been hard at work this summer preparing for the return of students this fall to ensure the health and safety of everyone in the building. There are a lot of changes which include but are not limited to the following:

-All students will be required to wear masks all day (except for meal time/PE/special circumstances).

-High School students will only be able to gain entrance to the building through the west gymnasium vestibule doors, where they will be required to scan their temperatures prior to entering the main building. Doors to the building will not open until 7:45 am. From the west vestibule entrance students will proceed to the commons area where a grab and go breakfast will be available. After getting breakfast students will immediately go to their first hour classroom!

-If a student’s temperature is 100 degrees or higher, he/she will be re-scanned with a handheld thermometer and sent home if the temperature remains at or above 100 degrees.

-Hallway traffic/passing periods will be managed with directional patterns, fewer transitions, and social distancing floor markings.

-Students will be spaced 6 feet apart whenever possible.

-Classroom sanitation will occur at the beginning of each class period.

-Students/staff will sanitize their hands before and after each class period.

-Water fountains will be disabled; water bottle filling stations will be active.

-No outside shared food items will be allowed in the building and microwaves to heat meals will be unavailable.

-If you are dropping off material to your student you will need to call Brenda in the office and she will meet you at the entrance.
