Dear VHS Parents and Guardians,
We have made many changes to how we have opened and conducted school this year. Through it all we understand that the only constant is change. It seems once we have something set, we find the need to revisit it due to unforeseen circumstances. We introduced a new bell schedule this year and for a variety of reasons we saw that changes needed to be made. Unfortunately, we once again see a need to change our bell schedule for the following reasons:
The bell schedule will be changed to move Breakfast Break to after 2nd period beginning Tuesday, September 8, 2020. This means the first class will begin at 8:10 AM and not 8:23 AM. This will not affect the Jazz Band start time during zero hour as the mitigation plans require students to stop playing after a certain amount of time. The class duration times will remain 47 minutes Monday through Thursday, and 37 minutes on Friday. We will continue to be flexible with tardies the week of September 8 as students and families make the adjustment. We appreciate your patience and flexibility as we continue to refine our program at Valdez High School.
