Students and staff should report to schools on Monday, Jan. 30, 2017, on a regular schedule. Originally designated as the semester break (with no student attendance), this day now will be used to make up for a weather-related closures. Schools will be in session.
To minimize lost instructional time during the first semester, VPS has extended the semester.
In addition, the district is requesting a waiver from the state for four of the eight snow days that have closed schools thus far during the year. The district ensures that it can meet the statutory requirement for an average of 1,027 instructional hours if the waiver is granted.
