October 30 Newsletter

Hello VCMS Families!  
    The first nine weeks is over!  We are 1/4 of the way through the year.  Thank you for continuing to support our "No Cell Phone" policy this year.  We appreciate it and it has cut down on technology related issues.  
     Our fall Parent/Teacher conferences are the evening of November 8 from 3:30 - 8:30pm.  Please get in touch with the school to set up an appointment.  

REMINDER: there is no supervision in the morning until 8:05am.  Please do not drop students off until after that time.

ATTENDANCE YEARLY:
6TH: 95.7%
7TH:  95.8%
8TH:  95.5%
OVERALL:  95.7%

Please keep in mind that Excessive absences include BOTH excused and unexcused absences.  The state allows 65 hours of absence in one school year.  Please ensure your child is on time and does not get signed out early.  These add up quickly!  We appreciate all you do for your child and the communication with the school when your child is absent.  Please provide excuses when your child does have to miss.
