Message from the Principal

We, the VSAA teachers, administrators, counselors, and staff, are eagerly awaiting the beginning of school. While we may begin virtually, it is our intention to do verything we can to maintain our sense of community, artistry, and the palpable joy that can usually be felt when we walk through the doors of our school. To that end, we will have advocacy, concerts, performances, and clubs and activities, though they will be virtual, at least for now. We will have theme activities, and ASB is planning virtual spirit days and other ways to keep us engaged and connected.

Please be flexible, patient with us and yourself, and let us know your needs and suggestions. We will also continue with our academic support. This will include teacher office hours and enrichment. We have also added some communication tools, including drop in Zooms with administrators and office staff. It is our hope that our students will find joy in the arts, connection in our community, and confidence in themselves as we all rise to meet this challenging time.


We are providing hard copy planners for students to organize their work. However, you may find it helpful to use the electronic schedule template, and insert the Zoom Links for
your classes.

Optional Weekly Planning Template

For the month of September, we will have an open Zoom for students or parents to drop in each Wednesday, between 11 and 1. Either the principal, associate, or both will be available
for student or parent questions and/or concerns. Please use the following link below. We will utilize the waiting room feature in Zoom when questions or concerns are confidential.
If you log onto the zoom and are in the waiting room for a period of time, it is likely the result of this. We will make every effort to limit time in the waiting room.
