Good day,

SCHOOL CLOSURE: Below is the presentation given to my students during our first session (April 6th) via video link. Also, I posted the calendar for each week according to the VRMS block schedule. I hope the information provides clarity regarding your child's responsibilities. Please contact me via email regarding questions or concerns. Thank you for your support through this ordeal. - Mr. Ricks
