• Graduation Day at VHS

    June 2nd, 2020

    The celebration will be held on Tuesday, June 2, 2020, the same day our commencement ceremony was to take place. However, we will begin with our celebration at 9:00 am. Our early start will allow our graduates and their immediate family members (those whom they have been sheltering-in-place with) the time needed to take a few pictures after students receive their diplomas.  

    The Ceremony*

    1. Students and their immediate family members will drive into the parking lot in front of the school (only one car per graduate) and pull up at a designated area.

    2. The student, in their graduation attire, will exit the vehicle and walk towards a specified space to receive their diploma from the Principal.  Family members are to stay near their car and take any pictures from afar.

    3. Once the student has their diploma in hand, family members can walk towards the graduate who will be waiting for them at a different designated area to take pictures with family.

     *Video recorded messages from the Principal and student speakers will be incorporated into the video pictures taken during this event.
