In accordance with the Indianapolis Mayor’s Office new health mandate and in consultation with the Marion County Health Department, we are announcing a shift to virtual learning for all Victory College Prep students (Grades K – 12).  Through this plan, all students, K-12, will complete online virtual assignments beginning Monday, Nov. 23rd.  The last day of in-person learning for students will be Thursday Nov. 19th.  We understand this is difficult and will continue to monitor the health climate and county guidance to get students back to a full return to school as soon as we are able.

 

Planning for this school year is evolving daily and we may need to make further changes to our school plan as the health climate in Indianapolis changes. Additional changes related to this situation will be made and communicated via our school website, social media pages, our web app, and via phone/text.  

 

While we know this school year will be a very different one for our students and our staff, we remain committed to making it a special one for everyone in our school community and we intend to offer a comprehensive online and in-person experience. 

 

Please contact your school leader with questions or concerns.
