Additional After-School Information
Age-appropriate students who live in the surrounding VCP neighborhood are permitted to walk home following program dismissal at approximately 4:55 p.m.
Parents, guardians, or approved family members may pick up car-rider students at the front office door. Students will have until 5:10 p.m. to be picked up. Any student who is not picked up after that time will receive a phone call home. After the second time that students are not picked up by 5:10 p.m., they will be removed from the after-school programming roster.
VCP provides 4 buses, each with satellite stops throughout the city, for after-school programming. Please see the list of available buses and stops. For student safety, we ask that students who do not live within half of a mile of an available bus stop not ride the bus home.
Students are expected to remain in their school uniform throughout after-school, unless their club specifies otherwise.
Age-appropriate students are permitted to contact and communicate with parents during after-school programs; however, school-wide expectations for technology usage still apply.
Student expectations for after-school are the same as the normal school day. Students who cause, or are involved in, a behavioral issue will receive a phone call home, a formal referral of the incident, and will not be permitted to participate in future after-school dates for a minimum of one week. Further issues may result in a ban from after-school programs.
In Grades 7 thru 12, students who receive a referral during the regular school day are not permitted to stay after school on the day the referral was received but may return once they have completed their reflection and consequence given by our Student Support Team.
Snacks are provided by VCP; however, students may bring a snack to enjoy after-school. Students are not permitted to order food to be delivered to the building.
