Thank you

The poem below uses the pronoun 'he' but we are well aware the 'he' could be 'she' as many moms and dads serve and deploy to defend our country.

We appreciate your service tremendously!

CLINIC CORNER

The clinic supply of extra clothes is very low with few options. It is highly recommended to pack an extra change of clothes to keep in your child’s backpack in case of an accident, spill, or slip in water/mud or nosebleed. If there are no clothes in the backpack and we can’t find a size from the clinic supply that will fit comfortably we will call you to bring clothes.

VBCPS Updates

You should have received an email from the school division regarding updates for the 2021-2022 school year on Thursday, April 22nd. The most significant information is the introduction for the Virtual Virginia program. For those of you who choose the virtual option for next year, one of the big questions is will you still be connected to John B. Dey. The answer is yes. You would be able to participate in extra-curricular activities, PTA events, SCA, and clubs. Our counseling staff will be your mentor connection between JBD and VVA. Stay tuned for email from the VBCPS Leadership for enrollment dates and FAQs.
