COVID POSITIVE PROCESS

What are my next steps if my student is quarantined? 

VCS continues to work hard to enforce the protocols and guidelines to look out for the health and safety of students and employees. We continue to monitor the situation closely and will make adjustments along the way as things shift. At this time, we are not providing a hybrid or distance learning option. Studies have shown how important it is for students to maintain health by being on campus and in class with their peers and teachers. We desire to provide social and emotional support and learning as well as academic instruction while maintaining a safe environment for them physically. 

Elementary Steps

  1. If any student needs to miss school due to a county-mandated absence, please email Christine Nauck, cnauck@vcs.net, and your student's teacher.
  2. Reach out directly to your student's teacher via email to coordinate a time to pick up school work.
  3. Once the student is released to return to on-campus learning, please email Christine Nauck, cnauck@vcs.net, and your student's teacher.

Junior High Steps

  1. If any student needs to miss school due to a county-mandated absence, please contact Brian Clemons, bclemons@vcs.net. VCJH will notify the quarantined student's teachers to turn on their Zoom room and open the link on the Welcome Page of their teacher website on learn.vcs.net. 
  2. Students can participate at home using an "At Home Listener" format by turning into the classroom via Zoom to watch what was occurring in class. The student may not be able to see and track all classroom learning or ask the teachers questions, but they can watch via the DTEN boards in the classroom allowing the student to hear the lesson and assignments to prevent them from falling far behind. Some classes will not have DTEN boards, such as dance and P.E. classes.  
  3. Once the student is released to return to on-campus learning, please inform Brian Clemons, bclemons@vcs.net, and he will notify the teachers to discontinue Zoom.

Some classes will not have DTEN boards, such as dance and P.E. classes. More information can be found in the VCHS Student Handbook.
