At VCS, we are aware of the challenges many families face when trying to get their children to school and make it to work on time. We have a solution for you!
As early as 6:30 am, we will provide a safe place for students to come to school early to read, study, or work on other tasks. Additionally, from 3:15 pm-6:00 pm, students are welcome to stay after school to work on homework, have some outside time, or play games.
These services are FREE for our K-8 students. Yes...you read that right...FREE!
Regular instructional time will begin at 7:50 am, and will end at 3:15 pm.
Thank you for choosing to be a part of the VCS West Family!
APS is distributing free breakfast, lunch and dinner at 16 locations to ALL children 18 and under. The meals, which include vegetarian options, will be available together for pickup through a grab-and-go system every Monday through Friday throughout the extended school closure.
APS is providing meals at as many locations as possible to reduce travel distances for families. You will notice that the windows for meal pick up are 25 minutes long. Although this may seem short, we believe this window will allow us to provide for a grab-and-go system while also helping us maximize the number of pick-up locations and serve the highest number of families throughout the district. Please note the locations and times below.
The charter process provides an avenue for educators, citizens, businesses, communities and parents to direct their innovative efforts. Charter schools offer teachers a chance to be part of designing and working in semi-autonomous, creative schools under defined philosophical approaches. Each student, parent and teacher chooses to be there.
