Enjoy the holiday break with family and friends, then come back refreshed for the last three weeks of Semester 1 before Holiday Break!

Reminder: Online Classes must be 70% or higher at the end of the semester to not be billed $300 for the class.

If a family paid for an online class and it was agreed that VSSA would reimburse for this class $300 if a grade of 70% or higher is achieved, an email to Holly Beavers is required. Please include via a parent email: your request for $300 reimbursement due to VSSA agreeing to reimburse the family, proof that class has been completed with 70% of higher (which will be given to Charlene Whitney, the Counselor to add to their transcript), your mailing address and social security number (this is needed to give to the District Office to write a check out to a parent). If you are uncomfortable putting your SSN in an email, please feel free to call Holly or give it to her in person.
