We are releasing your student today because of the inclement weather approaching. We are currently under a flood advisory. We release your student, under these conditions, for safety concerns; and because our bus does not always travel on paved roads.
In these situations, we normally release at 1:00 P.M., to ensure that your student has made the required minutes for school. While it is not our intention to release early, situations do arise where we may need to.
If you need any more information, please feel free to call the front office. Or friend our Facebook page or check our website. www.vhmschool.org.
