I have a question about the quarantine email that came out. If teens are vaccinated, will they need to quarantine if exposed in school? They are distanced and wearing masks and should not have to quarantine if exposure is less than 15 minutes and all guidance is followed.
So is it normal for a high school to let a kid just walk out of school? 1st day of 9th grade. New school. New procedures. Kid waits for bus approx 45 minutes at the school. (Route is the 2nd run). Bus leaves school without kid. (Isn’t there a list of who should be on the bus) Adult in the room doesn’t offer any solutions....just tells the kid that bus left already. So kid just walks out!!! Wtf?? Found our kid over a mile from the school in the rain trying to get home. All the adults in that school failed today. First time in 9 yrs in this district my kid has every missed a bus dismissing from school.
Can't access bus information....I have an academy student with no info!
There should be a rule that once a bus stop is established(and used) that it won’t be moved/changed. Shame on you for moving a bus stop that the kids on my street(including my own) have used for years!! 😞
Why is the transportation department so hard to get a hold of. I have no bus info for my son for tomorrow morning...I been on hold on the phone for 45 mins as of now ( 3:50pm) My son's school told me to contact transportation department for help. I need an answer Thank you
My daughter is supposed to take a Gifted bus to VB Middle since she is out of district. She had a bus assigned for orientation day last week, but suddenly has NO bus assigned for the school year. Parentvue has no bus information. VB Middle front desk has no information. I've been waiting on hold with VBPS Transportation for over 30 minutes and still haven't spoken to a human being. WHO AM I SUPPOSED TO TALK TO FIND OUT HOW SHE IS GETTING TO SCHOOL?? I can't make a twice a day commute to take her to school and drop her off everyday - I WORK. Will someone in the school system PLEASE HELP?
After 1 hour an 4 minutes someone finally answered the phone an I got the information I needed, way to go VBCPS Transportation.
where is Karen Johnston? She taught high school English at kellam high school in the year 2009. When I was a freshman she had a personal vendetta out for me, a 14 year old girl at the time, that I was going to end up pregnant, drop out of high school, and end up on a corner somewhere in Portsmouth. Would really like to know where she’s at now so that she can be informed that she was 100% wrong and she’s a terrible educator.
Perfect sense
VB schools please hear us. The numbers are too high and there are too many other schools closing because of the numbers. Give us an option now before our children get sick.
I have conflicting information. Is the first day of school Sept 8th or the 9th?
