A Letter to Parents of Seniors - Jan 7th

Dear Students and Parents of the Class of 2021,

Well, this has been an interesting year!!!!  Everyday seems to present new challenges to overcome.  However, like the mighty Vikings you are, you are overcoming all challenges and we are getting closer to graduation.  When you got here, I told everyone that this time will run fast, and it has.  The next few months will go even quicker.  Please enjoy every minute left as you prepare for graduation and your future after you leave.  Attached are tentative dates for the remainder of the year.  As this year has shown us, all dates and times can change at any time.  We will post any changes on the Website and the Senior Google Page.  

April 13th - April 15th - No School for Seniors.  VHS will be conducting PSAT/SAT testing.

April 17th - Prom  (I will make the decision on March 12th if we are able to precede with Prom.  Once the decision is made to have/not to have Prom we will not change.  We will not move the event back to a later date.)

May 4th - Senior Parent Night - Virtually 6:00 pm.  

May 7th - All Senior Fees Need to be paid (Students will not be allowed to walk at graduation if fees are not paid by this time.  If you have concerns about paying it, you need to communicate with the administration, ASAP.)  

May 14th - ICAP Due - 4:00 pm (Students will not be allowed to walk in graduation if not completed by this time).

May 20th - Academic Awards Night (9th - 12th Grade, this will take the place of Senior Awards Night.  This will be by invite only.  I will make the decision on April 12th if we are able to proceed with Academic Awards Night.)

May 25th - May 27th - Senior Checkout Week (Senior will not receive their cap/gown until all fees paid, computer turned in, all classes passed, ICAP finished.  This will also be the week of finals.)

May 27th - Last official day for Seniors.  

May 28th - 

8:00 am - Cap/Gown Pick Up at the football field.  Students will turn in their Challenge Coin and their Thank You cards at this time. 

8:45 am - Senior Graduation Practice on Football Field - Students required to be in attendance.

May 29th - 

9:00 am - Graduation at Valley Viking Field (Students need to be on the field by 8:15 am)

This will be a limited participation event.  A maximum of ten people per family will be allowed in.  If we have to go inside because of weather only 2 people will be allowed per family.  Seating at the stadium will be determined by lottery on April 30th, students will be told on May 4th, where families will be seated.

The following traditional events will not occur this semester.

Senior Trip

Senior Breakfast  

Like I said, all these dates are subject to time change and location change.  We will do our best to keep you informed.  If you have any concerns please call the office.  We are here to help you all through the next five months.  It is truly a pleasure to work with this Senior Class.
