  1. IMPORTANT READ****First Period Detentions: VSHS is dedicated to improving course academic success and feel that the first step in doing so is to focus on student attendance.  As we attempt to prepare our students for a career or college life after high school we here at VSHS feel that every day on time attendance is a vital component to being prepared for either pathway.  Starting third trimester we are going to begin monitoring student tardies and attendance even more closely.  Our efforts to hold our students more accountable for their attendance is simple preparation for life beyond VSHS.  Students coming to school tardy to their first period class will be assigned an after school detention when they have exceeded a third tardy.  Each tardy thereafter the third will result in an after school detention.  Tardies occurring between periods 2-7 will be managed and supervised by the classroom teachers for the classes they are tardy to.  Detentions will be 30 minutes in length and served on Tuesday and Thursday of each week.  Students that miss the assigned detention time will be assigned an hour detention for the next available detention day of the week.  Students that miss their assigned second detention will be turned into administration and required to serve in-school suspension and still be required to serve the one hour after school detention that was assigned. First
