    Preschool  
     
    On Tuesday, 5/19 you are invited to the VC Parade down Grand Avenue (Elementary Campus) between 10:00-11:00 am. We are asking families to travel down Hacienda St. from Woodruff Avenue. Turn Right at the stop sign and exit onto Artesia Blvd. Feel free to circle around twice. Teachers and staff will be lined up along the street to wave at the children as we close the 19/20 school year.
     
    VCPS Summer Care: As we move closer to Summer, we wanted to share some important information that we have at this time. Under current licensing laws, preschool is only able to open for families of essential workers. We have hopes that the current laws will loosen, and we will be able to open for all families who would like summer preschool for their child. We are looking at different options as we assume that current restrictions may remain in place. Because of these restrictions, we will need an estimate of who would be interested in attending a preschool summer program whether you are considered essential or not. Please let us know by submitting the form through the link and respond to the questions that are asked. If you do not need summer care, you can disregard the questionnaire.
