Using the Student Handbook - All students were issued a student handbook and planner, or "agenda". Students are urged to use this handbook for a variety of reasons. Students can keep a day-to-day list of homework, projects, test, and quiz assignments in their handbook. The handbook contains a school calendar with major events listed. Important information about school activities, dress code, the merit/demerit system, and the VMS disciplinary guide are in the handbook. Students are urged to keep a record of grades in the spaces provided. Lost handbooks can be replaced for a fee. Students should inquire at the school store for replacement handbooks.
Student Identification Cards - Each student is issued an ID card with photo. There are several purposes for these cards. Our cafeteria cash registers are computerized and students may establish an account by submitting a check to the cafeteria. Subsequent charges will be credited to that account, using the ID card. Parents can also access this account to check on what their child is purchasing and or to check on the balance. ID cards are required in the cafeteria, and students with merit stickers will be called first to purchase lunches. Student ID cards also serve a purpose in emergencies, and may be vital during an emergency. All students are strongly urged to carry an ID at all times. Lost ID cards can be replaced for a $5.00 fee at the student's grade level office. Occasional ID checks will be held, and students lacking an ID card may be assigned a demerit.
VMS Discipline Guide. Information on disciplinary policies and procedures is available in the student handbook. Students and their parents were asked to review these policies and submit a signed statement acknowledging the rules and procedures at the start of the school year. Questions about the discipline guide may be referred to Mr. Winsett.
