Effectively Immediately

  • Masks are optional for all individuals when outside (e.g., outside recess and PE, outside afterschool programs, outside athletics, etc.)
  • Morning temperature checks will only be performed as needed.

Effective June 1, 2021

  • Masks are optional for all individuals for all activities on the VCS campus, including but not limited to, extracurricular and athletics, both inside and outside 

Effective August 5, 2021
