COVID-19 Update and VCA in FALL 2020

Update as of June 29, 2020

Based upon guidance and mandates given by state and county officials, VCA plans to open fully for our first day of school August 20, 2020!  We ask for your prayers and patience as we navigate the fluidity of this season with COVID-19. 

The following mandates given by our county will be honored by VCA unless updated guidance is received before the start of school:
  • Social distancing: Student seating in classroom will be adjusted to enable students to maintain 6 ft. of social distancing.  Modifications will be made, as needed, to recess times and other larger group gathering times to allow for proper social distancing. 
  • Face Coverings:  Currently staff and students over 12 are mandated to wear cloth face coverings indoors and when 6 ft. of social distance is not possible.  State and county are still discussing whether students under 12 should be required to wear face coverings.  All of this could change by August, so we ask for your patience as we wait for further guidance.
  • Health Screenings: Parents, please run a brief health screening of your own student(s) before school for symptoms of illness, especially fever over 100 degrees fahrenheit.  Students will also have their temperature checked at school and will require immediate pick-up if they have a fever or clear symptoms of illness.

We are excited to return to campus with you all!  As fall gets closer and we have more specifics with regard to our return to campus, we will keep you updated.  Thank you, as always, for your flexibility.  We trust God's good plans for us all and we are praying for you and your students!

       VCA@Home - our successful answer

VCA launched VCA@Home which was one of the most successful remote learning programs offered. We continued our full curriculum within 1 week of the shelter-in-place order. 

VCA@Home gave students quality education through qualified teachers streaming virtually.  Even from home, we continued to help your students to be grounded in Christ, and ready for the world.

Grounded in Christ. Ready for the world.
