Volunteers at Vienna-Finley
Volunteers are important to the success of every school in Scott 2, such as helping with classroom activities, chaperoning field trips, or even just having lunch with your child. If you'd like to volunteer or visit our schools, we ask that you help us keep our school safe by submitting the required background check. The DCS portion of the check can take some time, so please make sure you submit all paperwork by September 14, 2018, even if you don't plan to help at the school until next spring. Completing all background check requirements by Sept. 14 will ensure the process can be completed in time to participate in a school activity. Any submission after Sept. 14 may delay the process and delay participation in a school school activity. Thank you for your planning and assistance.
Let's Talk Safety!
All morning car riders should be dropped off on the west side of the building by the doors that lead into the gymnasium. Our doors open at 7:30 A.M. Students should not be dropped off in front of the building. At the end of the day all car riders should be picked up on the west side of the building. Please do not come into the office at the end of the day unless you are signing your student out early for an appointment or if you have made prior arrangements with the office. Thank you for your cooperation in helping to keep our students safe and making the drop off and dismissal process run smoothly.
Please be sure to contact the school early with any schedule or transportation changes and always have the car tag visible in your windshield. This helps the line rum smoothly and ensures that your child get into the correct vehicle.
Let's Get Connected!
We like to send home communication, newsletters and reminders often via email. Please call the office and have Mrs. Napier add your email address to your Harmony Family Access account if you haven't already. If you do not have an email address and would like help setting one up, we would be more than happy to assist you. Many people have email on their smart phones and that works great for home/school communication too! Just let us know how we can help. We would love to share the great things happening at VFES with you!
