Good Evening, Townsend families, We had so much fun this past week celebrating Spirit Week! Make sure to follow our Vandyschools page on Facebook to see fun pics from the week! With the cooling weather, please make sure to send your child in with appropriate clothing to the weather. Please make sure that jackets and sweatshirts are labeled with your child’s name. Parents: If you have concerns or questions about something that happened during the school day, please reach out to your child’s teacher first before me or Mrs. Mannor. Many times we are not a part of the situation and the teacher knows what’s going on. If you do not feel the situation is resolved via the teacher, then feel free to contact Mrs. Mannor or myself :) Thank you so very much for your support! We value everything you do to support our students and our staff :) Have a great day! Go Jayhawks!

Good Evening, Jayhawk families, This is Jamie Stanley with some announcements. First day of school is this Wednesday at 8:30am with dismissal at 12:05pm. Teachers will be contacting all virtual only students this week to give directions on their virtual learning. If your child is a hybrid and coming Tuesdays and Thursdays, then their first day will be on Thursday, Aug 27. Please turn in your free and reduced lunch form with your student to give to the teacher. Parents: your child’s classroom teacher is working very hard to get everything ready, prepared, and safe. However, they also have families of their own they take care of. Please understand that any communication made to the teachers after normal school hours may not be returned until the next school day. Latchkey: If you are signed up for morning latchkey (6:30am-8:30am), please drop your child off at the west exit. The procedure for latchkey will be: Please call 867-6261 and let the latchkey teacher know you are dropping off in the morning or picking up in the afternoon. They will come get your student outside for arrival or bring your student out to you for dismissal. Masks must be worn in latchkey by all students. Arrival: Please stay in your vehicles to drop off your student. Again, parents will not be allowed in the building at this time. Students will be allowed in the building at 8:15am. Dismissal: Please stay in your vehicles for pick up. K-2 students will exit out of the doors by the gym and 3-6 students will exit out of west wing doors if you have children in multiple grades advise them to dismiss out the exit their youngest sibling is assigned. There will be cones up to help the flow of students. Please be patient as the first few days will be hectic. We will be doing a backward dismissal this year starting with 6th grade. Please be on time to pick up your child/ren as we want to make this as quick and smooth as possible. We will also plan to provide breakfasts and lunches to our remote learners on Mondays and Wednesdays from 9:30-10:15am at the HS. If you are interested and have not already spoken to someone to sign up, please call the office and let the secretaries know. Please remember that all students have to wear masks. We will be providing times for students to be able to take their masks off. We will be handing out masks for every student, a breakaway lanyard for students to hook onto their masks on the first day of school. Finally, we have everything in place to help your child, but we are all learning how to navigate this new way of school. I ask that you please be patient and understanding with our new policies and procedures. We are getting really excited about the new year! As always, thank you for your support. Have a great week! Go Jayhawks!

Vandercook Lake Public School Community: On Wednesday, January 8th, school administrators were informed of a possible threat to the middle/high school.  This report came to the administration after school had dismissed for the day. The administration immediately notified the Jackson County Sheriff’s office and started to conduct an investigation into the matter.    Through a collaborative investigation, the identity of the student responsible for making the statement has been verified.  The district has been notified by the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department that the student who made the original statement has been detained as a precautionary measure as the investigation continues.   With the student currently under the direct supervision of the Jackson County Sheriff’s Department, it has been determined that the Vandercook Lake Public Schools will be open tomorrow, Thursday, January 8th, 2020. Parents and students may notice an additional police presence at the start of school.  The additional police presence was requested by the school district. I want to assure our community that we take these types of threats seriously and that the safety of our students and staff is our highest priority.

A great story to share. A parent whose child enlisted in the Navy was hoping to have banners hung on McDevitt Ave. to honor her son and five other 2019 graduates that are now in the Navy serving our country. When the utility poles on McDevitt were deemed as not an option she asked the schools if she could hang the banners at our school. The banners were hung yesterday through the generous assistance of Johnson Sign (Mr. Jim Johnson) and Mr. Kevin Hull. We hope this will serve as a reminder of all the Jayhawks who are currently serving our country in the different braches of the military. #JayhawkStrong #BelieveAchieveSOAR
