Message from the Principal

Dear Virginia Lake Families,

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We are preparing for a few fun activities at Virginia Lake. On February 2, 2022 we will have a twin day to celebrate 2-2-22, the day of 2’s, which only happens every 100 years. On this date, students will be encouraged to dress like a twin with another student at our school. Students can also be twins with the Virginia Lake staff, by dressing in spirit wear.

This year on Valentine’s Day schools can allow 1-2 room parents per room. Our wonderful PTA will coordinate parties in a bag for each classroom. Volunteers will be invited to help classroom teachers coordinate the activities during the party. Our room representatives will coordinate volunteers for each classroom. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact your child’s teacher.

We will follow the typical check-in process and provide a state ID/driver’s license and go through the RAPTOR process within the front office. Parents and visitors need to self-certify that they are COVID symptom and fever free. Per guidance, if you are a volunteer, you must either show proof of vaccination or a negative test to enter the building. Volunteers must follow the Executive Order and wear a mask in the building at all times. We thank you in advance for your cooperation. We are looking forward to celebrating with our parents again!

Let's make it a great week!

With Kindest Regards,

Patti Van Winkle, Principal

Family Collaboration Survey- Midyear Check-In

We are seeking your input to follow up on our initial survey from the beginning of the year, to gain valuable insights into how things have been going at Virginia Lake this school year. The initial information that families shared was analyzed and several adjustments have been made at our school. We are asking you to complete this brief follow-up survey. Results from this survey will be analyzed by our Family Collaboration Team. We will work together to improve the climate and culture of our school community to create an optimal learning environment for all of our students.
