Yearbooks:

Hello, VLMS families!

If you have purchased a yearbook this year. thank you for supporting our students! Yearbooks will be coming mid to late June. When they are in, we will post the information on our website, social media pages, and will contact all families who purchased one. The process for getting your yearbook will depend on current school health guidelines.


Update: 4/22/2020 -
Over the weekend Governor DeSantis announced that Florida schools will continue distance learning through the end of the school year. This brings a lot of questions for everyone. The biggest will be how to get the locker items to the students. At this time we do not have a plan in place (as this just happened over the weekend). We will inform everyone of our plans as we formulate them and get all the facts. Thank you for your patience.



We continue to receive updates regarding the Coronavirus (COVID19) and are committed to providing you with updated information as we receive it.

It is vital that you and your family stay informed with the most current information provided by the Center for Disease Control (CDC)

Chromebooks

Parents/Students - In preparation for online learning starting March 30th, 2020, we recommend the following actions.

Make sure your students can log into the Chromebook and access all of their teachers' Google Classrooms.
Have your student test both the microphone and camera to make sure they are working (Cameras may be blocked due to stickers and coloring of the camera. If there are any stickers, they will need to be removed and/or the marker removed before use)

If you are having an issue with your students' Chromebook please call the school and we will try to assist you via phone. If phone support is not possible we will schedule a time for you to come in so we can swap out the Chromebook. Swap-outs will be by appointment only (starting March 24th, 2020) from 9:am - 12:30 pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Starting March 26th, 2020 Tuesday and Thursday will be from 1:00 pm - 5:30 pm also by appointment only. Please call the school to schedule an appointment (If possible please call at least the day beforehand)
