Notes from the Office
Is there a day your student-athlete doesn't have training?

IF your child does not have on hill training and their coach is not meeting them at VSSA in the morning,  please do not drop them off at the school before 10 o’ clock study hall.  They will be unsupervised.  If they are planning to come to study hall because they have a day off training please make sure they have school work to do or a book to read. There are no video games or movies allowed in study hall.  If your student says they have no work to do please
email their teachers and ask if there are any assignments that they could be working on doing the morning study hall. Any questions please click here to email Ms. Suplizio at

Now is the time to start thinking about your summer plans.  Can you attend a pre-collegiate program, get college credit while spending time on a college campus of interest?  Participate in an internship or get a job?  A shared doc is in the works to help you explore and plan.
