The Pfizer vaccine has been approved for use with anyone 16 years or older.

The Student Vaccination Clinic will be held in the VHS Cafeteria on Wednesday, April 14th from 4-6 PMParents who wish to have their child(ren) vaccinated must complete a Parent Consent form. We recommend a parent attend with their child(ren) if possible. If your child has a reaction, we will have staff there to provide medical care. If you are not in attendance we will notify you immediately. If you have not yet been vaccinated and wish to, you are welcome to sign up at the same time.

La Clínica será en la Cafetería de Valley High School el miércoles 14 de abril, de las 4-6 de la tarde. Los padres que deseen vacunar a sus hijos deben completar la forma de Consentimiento de Padre. Recomendamos que un padre asista con su hijo si es posible. Si su hijo tiene una reacción, tendremos personal allí para brindarle atención médica. Si no está presente se le notificará de inmediato.

Remote Learning and Quarantine Expectations

Parents and Students of VHS,


On Oct 15th and Oct. 16th, VHS had to suspend In-School Learning activities due to a positive COVID Test.  At any time this could happen again.  There is the possibility that VHS could suspend In-School learning activities from 1 day to 14 days.  There is also the possibility, at any given time, VHS might have to abandon Hybrid Learning and return to Remote Learning.  It is  important that parents and students of VHS understand what the expectations for the students are if we suspend In-School learning.


  1. Students are still responsible for school work.  6-8 hours per day.  This is not an off day.  Please do not encourage your students to sleep in or pick up extra hours of work.


  1. It is highly recommended that students maintain a “normal” academic schedule when they are online.     


  1. Teachers will maintain Google Meet hours during their normal class times.


  1. All due dates will still be the same.  Do not expect due dates to change because we have suspended In-School learning activities.


  1. Eligibility will still be pulled for grades during quarantine.


  1. Teachers will still be available to your students for questions.  Teachers will be available from 8:00 am - 3:30 pm.


  1. If we move into permanent Remote Learning, current grading practices will apply.  We will not return to the criteria used during the second semester last school year.



We are rapidly approaching the end of the Fall semester.  We have 6 weeks left.  Please make sure students are taking care of their academic responsibilities.  We will run a normal school schedule until December 18th.  Please do not pull your students early for Winter Break, especially if they are struggling.  As a final note, no decision has been made in regards to Summer School for the summer of 2021.  Please do not count on your students attending Summer School to make up credits.  



If you have any questions, please contact the administrative office, 970-350-4201.




Padres y Estudiantes de VHS,


El 15 y 16 de octubre, Valley High School tuvo que cancelar clases y actividades escolares debido a un caso positivo de COVID. Es posible que esto pase de nuevo y que VHS necesite suspender actividades escolares de 1-14 días. También existe la posibilidad, a cualquier hora, que VHS necesite abandonar el horario híbrido (clases presenciales) y regresar al aprendizaje a distancia. Es necesario que los padres y estudiantes de VHS entiendan las expectativas para los estudiantes si es necesario cancelar el aprendizaje en persona.


  1. Los estudiantes siguen siendo responsables del trabajo escolar. De 6-8 horas por dia. No es día de descanso. Por favor no permita a su estudiante levantarse tarde o trabajar más horas si tienen empleo.


  1. Recomendamos fuertemente que los estudiantes mantengan un horario o rutina académica “normal” cuando estén en-línea.


  1. Los maestros mantendrán las horas de Google Meet durante horas normales.


  1. Las fechas de vencimiento seguirán igual. No espere que se cambien estas fechas debido a las cancelaciones de actividades escolares.


  1. Se revisará la elegibilidad de calificaciones durante la cuarentena como normal. 


  1. Los maestros estarán disponibles para cualquier pregunta de sus estudiantes. Los maestros estarán disponibles de 8 am - 330 pm.  


Si cambiamos a aprendizaje a distancia, se aplicarán las prácticas de calificación actuales. NO volveremos a los criterios utilizados durante el segundo semestre del año escolar pasado.



Nos acercamos rápidamente al final del semestre. Nos quedan 6 semanas. Asegúrese de que los estudiantes sean responsables por sus tareas académicas. Tendremos un horario escolar normal hasta el 18 de diciembre. Por favor, no retire a sus estudiantes temprano para las vacaciones de invierno, especialmente si tienen dificultades. Como nota final, no se ha tomado ninguna decisión con respecto a la escuela de verano para el verano de 2021. No cuente con que sus estudiantes asistan a la escuela de verano para recuperar créditos.


Si tiene alguna pregunta, comuníquese con la oficina administrativa,  970-350-4201.
