URGENT Schedule information for FRIDAY 12/14

Dear Viking families,

As you all know, it has been board policy for years to follow the DPS operating schedule related to inclement weather. We are concerned that there may be yet another delay posted for tomorrow, Friday.   In effort tot maintain integrity to our semester block schedule in the HIGH SCHOOL, we will operate on our normal schedule for ALL high school students only.  Please do use your own judgement to determine if your teenage driver is well-equipped to travel in any road conditions or please plan to drop your student at the high school so we can proceed with our final exams.  If you truly have a traffic pattern that is unsafe to travel, we expect you will use your best judgement in arriving.  We are making the exception to our rule in order to provide students the best chance for success in completing all end of semester exams and to have a natural break in the calendar and to return in January to a new schedule.  If you have an emergency, we will accommodate make-up exams as appropriate for those individual cases.

Please note that IF DPS posts a delay, the ELEMENTARY and the MIDDLE School WILL operate on a delay, but the HIGH SCHOOL will open at regular hours to meet testing requirements.

If you are uncertain of this message, please reach out to your building principal. If you have any other concerns, please feel free to email me directly.

We appreciate your continued support and your appreciation for student and staff safety as we navigated this large winter storm.  We will share any other changes to the schedule if it becomes necessary in the Spring, but at this time, we do not have to adjust our calendar as we have plenty of instructional hours built in to meet state requirements.

Thanks again. Have a great night and to all our High School kiddos, good luck on your final exams.

Regards,
Jennifer Lucas, M.Ed

Dear Mrs. Lucas:

I am pleased to congratulate Voyager Academy on exceeding the North Carolina State Board of Education’s academic growth expectations as measured by the Education Value-Added Assessment System for the 2017-2018 academic year. This is an outstanding achievement, and I join your faculty, students, and families in celebrating this milestone.

Education is vitally important to the success and growth of our young people. The impact you are making in the lives of your students is immeasurable. I am incredibly thankful for your dedication in education, and I applaud your unwavering commitment to North Carolina’s youth.

I look forward to hearing of your continued growth and success. My best wishes for your future.

Sincerely,

Two-hour Delay

Good evening Voyager families,

Thank you all for your patience and understanding today off the unexpected inclement weather and our desire to keep families and staff safe.
In an abundance of caution we will continue to follow our surrounding counties’ plans and we will operate on a two-hour delay to allow the sun to rise and to reassess any emergencies if they should come up.
We are aware that some of you may travel further and may have some safety concerns and we encourage you to be safe and to make the best decision for your family in returning tomorrow.  We will excuse absences again if you are unable to transport your children for any reason.
We will not hold early care but we do plan to have aftercare and after school activities if all goes well.
As you know we create a stacked calendar so we do not plan to have to make up any time yet.  We will watch the winter weather carefully and we will adjust instructional time if needed in the future.
Have a good night’s rest and we hope to see most of you tomorrow !
