Back to School Night, 9/13/2023

Back to School Night will be on Wednesday September 13, 2023 from 5 - 6pm. Come attend to hear more about the VATC program for you as a student, or as a parent of a student from the teachers, and tour the campus.

The purpose of Back to School Night is to learn about your/your child's educational program. It is not an individual conference.

We look forward to seeing everyone.

*Please remember pets from home are not allowed on campus, and cannot be at Back to School Night.

Heat Advisory

We are continuing to be forecast to have hot days this coming week. Please make sure students have a water bottle with them daily. We have a water refill station they can utilize to refill water bottles throughout the day.

Meet Jenny

Meet Jenny, VATC's newest member. Jenny is a two year old lab mix, and is full grown. She is a trained facility dog through Canine Companions with Jeremy Nolan our speech pathologist as her handler. She primarily interacts with students who want to outside. We are already seeing the benefits of having her on campus.
