Superintendent of Schools
October 15, 2021
I hope all of you had a great week! I know our students and staff were very busy during the four days of in-person school.
Diagnostic testing started this week for students (with parent approval) who are exposed to a positive COVID case or have minor symptoms that may be COVID related. This process is enabling students to stay in school if they test negative. Parents who do not give permission for COVID testing will need to have their children quarantined or sent home if they have symptoms.
If you would like to sign up your children for diagnostic testing please click one of the parent permission links below: These links can also be found on the COVID page of our website.
Specific details of how the test is administered are on our website on the COVID page in the Q & A section. In addition, you can utilize the following link:

We were also busy this week recognizing some important groups for their accomplishments and service. First, October is Principal Appreciation Month. We certainly appreciate the leadership of our five building administrative teams and their continued dedication to our children. In addition, October is also Board Appreciation Month. We recognized our Board of Education at last night’s Board meeting. As I said at the meeting, the VCS Board’s exceptional leadership along with their dedication to our students and their overall humility and selflessness is second to none and has had a major impact on the success of our District.
Finally, we also recognized our Victor Indoor Percussion Ensemble (VIPE) at last night’s meeting for being named NY State champions with the highest overall competition score in the last four years! It was fantastic to recognize the VIPE members at the Board meeting and celebrate this incredible achievement.
We have much to be proud of at VCS! Please let me know if you have any questions and enjoy the weekend.
