      FRIDAY, SEPT 1: Valdez City Schools is currently experiencing a districtwide internet outage due to fiber issues with an upstream service provider in Washington State. Though they are actively attempting to resolve the issue, we do not expect a resolution before Saturday, September 2.


      NOTE TO PARENTS AND GUARDIANS: Due to the outage, all phone lines at VCS are down. If you need to inform the school of any updates for your child, please stop by the front office to communicate your needs.


      We apologize for the inconvenience. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

  • Congratulations to Gretchen Kelly!

    We are very excited to announce we have offered the position of Middle School Principal to Gretchen Kelly and she has accepted pending board approval. Valdez has been very selective in the process and at this time of year it is very rare to find this qualified of a candidate. Gretchen shares in our excitement.


    Gretchen stated, “I’m a long-time Alaskan educator and am excited to accept the position of Principal for Gilson Middle School. I look forward to meeting all the students, families, and staff.”


    Please join me in welcoming Mrs. Gretchen Kelly to Valdez.

    For the 2022-2023 school year, the Child Nutrition Program will be required to charge for meals. For the past two years, the USDA granted waivers that allowed students to eat at no charge. Those waivers have expired. Please click HERE to fill out an application for your student to receive Free or Reduced meals.
