This school year is almost over, but we are always planning for the next year. This includes enrolling our newest students, our incoming Kindergarteners. If you, your neighbor, or anyone else you know living in our district has an incoming Kindergartener (who hasn't been in to register for the 2021-2022 school year), we would like to get all of these students registered by 5/26. Visit HERE to complete the Online Registration and then visit Sign Up Genius to make an appointment to come in and finish the registration in person. This is very important for our incoming K's as we will be planning our Summer Ignite/Camp Kindergarten for the end of July and want to make sure we include all of our newest students!
As always, call the VPE office with any questions!

Patriot Place Information
Registration for 2021-2022 School Year: Please note that Patriot Place openings for incoming Kindergarteners is now on a lottery system. Therefore, once a family officially registers they can be placed in the lottery system. Families will be notified by the end of May if they have been randomly selected for a spot after both spring registration windows have closed. Please note families with older siblings will be given priority to keep families together. Families who have been enrolled in the program prior to closing for Covid will be contacted to re-enroll this spring for registering for the 2021-2022 school year. As spots open for the older grades we will contact families from our waiting list.
Patriot Place Remains Suspended & Refund Checks: Patriot Place will remain suspended the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. Families who have current fifth graders who will not be returning next school year will be mailed a refund for their balance.
Vaccinations are an important part of keeping our students healthy and ready to learn. If you have not had a chance to get your child's immunization record updated at school, please find time as soon as possible to obtain certificates for your student from your healthcare provider. Students not in compliance may be excluded from attendance, especially in the event of widespread illness. If you are unsure if your student's records are up-to-date, please check with our school nurse Deddie VanBussum or the front office staff.
