Dear Panther Families,

WELCOME BACK TO THE VOLINIA 2023-2024 SCHOOL YEAR!

We are hosting an OPEN HOUSE Wednesday, August 23rd 4:30pm-6:00pm. Spread the word, we are enrolling new students!

The first day of school is Monday, August 28. It is a half day. Dismissal is 10:50. 

Your student will be sent home with an envelope of information including enrollment forms which MUST be completed and returned the next day with any other requirements* noted. 

If your student requires transportation to school, or you need to check on pick up/drop off times, you MUST call the transportation office 269-646-5981 before Thursday, August 23rd. 

As always, attendance is key to a student's success! Volinia students attend Monday thru Thursday with some exceptions (see calendar in packet) 7:55-2:40. If a student arrives after 7:55, they are tardy. Because of the shortened day and week schedule, we ask that appointments be made after school or on Fridays. As stated in the handbook, students are not allowed to have their phones in class. We will have a safe storage place for them as they will be turned in each morning. If you need to reach your student, please call or email the school.

 

*PROOF OF RESIDENCY, A COPY OF THE STUDENT’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE AND IMMUNIZATION RECORDS ARE REQUIRED FOR ALL STUDENTS. PLEASE SEND A CURRENT COPY OF A GUARDIAN’S LICENSE OR A UTILITY BILL WITH GUARDIAN’S NAME THAT MATCHES THE ADDRESS ON FILE FOR THE STUDENT.

 

IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER:        
First Day of School: August 28th ½ day 7:55-10:50     
No School Labor Day Weekend Sept 1st-4th
Early Dismissal Tues, Sept 12th 10:50

Looking forward to an amazing school year,
