VISD Initiates Virtual School for COVID Positive Students
Starting today, September 8th, VISD will launch Victoria Virtual School.
According to the latest VISD newsletter which you can read in its entirety here, Victoria ISD is set to launch Victoria Virtual School, a short-term, night school option serving grades pre-K through 12th for students who have tested positive for COVID-19 or students who are quarantining due to a member in their household testing COVID-19 positive.
How long can VISD students attend " virtual school"?
Keep in mind, Victoria Virtual School (VVS) is a short-term option for eligible students who meet these specific criteria. Students are expected to return to their on-campus learning environment as soon as their quarantine period ends.
Most eligible students will return to school within 10 days.
What about totals for the school year?
TEA guidance has limited each student to 20 cumulative days of participation in programs like this for the school year.
VISD has now reached Level 3 COVID Response
This means that all VISD schools will be utilizing partitions during lunch periods, and campuses will restrict visitors This means that you will no longer be able to have lunch with your student nor will you be able to drop off lunch or snacks for them.
This also means campuses will begin postponing non-essential events where there will be a large gathering of people; as well as campuses encouraging large group meetings of students to occur outside whenever possible;
Athletics will also be affected as athletics will begin to use the attendance and social distancing protocol established by UIL in 2020-2021 for indoor sports.
In addition, Level 3 Response due to widespread confirmed cases within the school community means that VISD will monitor attendance and maintain regular contact with local health authorities; reduced schedules and suspending non-essential activities; as well as limit campus access to only campus staff and students, no visitors will be allowed.
