Return to School

Today, Governor Ralph Northam made an announcement regarding the phased approach to reopening schools. Below are several links related to that announcement:

These resources will be linked on the main COVID page.

In conjunction with the Governor's announcement, Superintendent of Public Instruction James Lane has issued guidance to assist school divisions as they implement this phased approach. The guidance document, “Recover, Redesign, Restart 2020,” includes recommendations to protect the health and well-being of students, and respond to the impact of COVID-19 on learning, during each of the three phases of the governor’s reopening plan. Recover, Redesign, Restart 2020

There is also a dedicated webpage regarding the phased school reopening on the VDOE website. On this webpage, additional resources such as safety practices, health screening samples, an equity audit, task force reports and executive summaries, entrance questionnaires, and instructional plan guidance have been posted.

Special Message from the Principal

Dear VRES Families,

I reach out to you today to acknowledge the events that have transpired portraying the anger and hurt that exists in our country. Racism and hate have no place in our school; rather, our school is a place that strives towards inclusiveness and compassion for all while providing hope for the future.

We have all worked together to create places and spaces where all are welcome and seen. In our classrooms and within our school community, we will continue to learn about, value, and embrace each other’s differences while working to change the conditions that allow injustice. At our school, we have made a commitment to bring awareness to social and emotional issues within our building through an equity lens. 

For many in our community, these events are recent, raw and understandably quite upsetting. It is important yet impossible to comprehend centuries of horrifying injustice against minorities in this nation, particularly African Americans.

Please know that our school is here for you and we stand with our Black and African American community. It is the diversity of our community that make VRES a wonderfully unique place to live, work, learn and grow.  

We recognize that everyone may be impacted by these recent events differently and we welcome you to come together as a school community on Tuesday, June 9th at 7 pm to begin a courageous conversation about race and injustice during our last PTA Meeting for the school year. 

You can access this meeting via Zoom. I hope this is just the beginning of more powerful and impactful conversations to come as our school community continues to grow as one…#Weare1VRES!

Ms. Bumbrey
