Dear Parents and Families,

 

            Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year. The Vaile staff has been working over the summer to make this upcoming school year our best ever. The teachers have been busy attending special training sessions this summer. They are looking forward to educating your children. I am looking forward to working with the students, parents, and staff members in this fine school.

            The first day of school for all students will be Wednesday, August 8th. Breakfast will be served from 7:15-7:45

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday school hours are 7:50–2:40. Students will be dismissed at 1:40 on Tuesday’s. Breakfast will be served from 7:15-7:45.

The only entrance that will be accessible throughout the school day will be the front door on S 14th Street. This door will be locked for security purposes. Please press the door bell and we will let you in. All other doors will remain locked for security reasons. All visitors are to report to the office and will be asked to sign in, sign out and wear a visitor’s badge while in the building.

            The following forms must be on file at school for your child: legal birth certificate, immunization records from your doctor, home language survey, and an enrollment form.

 Vaile is a Title I school. We receive federal funding that supports the educational needs of your child. More information and dates for parent meetings will be forthcoming. Lunch and breakfast are free for every child.

Please make sure to complete a police background check if you are interested in doing volunteer work for Westview. This must be completed every year.      

 

At open house you can meet your child’s teacher and visit the classrooms. Feel free to bring in school supplies at this time.

 

 

General Procedures

 

Students need to be in class and ready to begin their daily activities at 7:50. Our dismissal time is 2:40 on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. We dismiss at 1:40 on Tuesday. We need for all our students to be here daily and on time. Attendance is a priority at Vaile. Please schedule all appointments after school hours. 

Please remember to drive safely especially during drop off and pick up times. We have many wonderful kids and we need your support to help keep our school safe. Parking for drop off is located in the front of the building. Please note that the half-circle drive will be blocked off during arrival and dismissal due to safety. If you need to come into the building to talk with one of us, please park your car in a parking spot.  

            When we have a two-hour delay, school will start at 9:50. A light breakfast is served when we are on a two-hour delay. You can access school closings/delays by going to the Richmond Community Schools web site, listening to the radio, or watching television.

 

  I am excitedly awaiting the arrival of your student(s)!

 

Sincerely,

Mrs. Tierney Stevenson
