Welcome Upper Elementary Families,
On behalf of the staff at The Vanguard School, we would like to welcome you to Upper Elementary. Whether you are a returning or new family, we are thrilled you have chosen Vanguard as your partner in your child’s education, and we look forward to the 2020-21 school year. To assist with the transition back to school, we have assembled all the information you will need for the upcoming new year on this page.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
As a result of a recent USDA policy announcement, beginning Tuesday, September 8, all students in grades 4-12 at The Vanguard School will be offered free school lunches, regardless of “Free and Reduced” lunch qualification. This policy will continue until further notice, and these lunches will be provided as “Grab and Go” sack lunches.
You do not need to fill out a form to take advantage of these free lunches, however, if you would like to continue receiving free lunches after this temporary policy expires, please complete District 11’s Application for Free and Reduced Price Meals.
If you have any questions regarding this policy or our lunch program in general, please email [email protected].
Our K-6 students will begin the year in a full-time, in-person learning posture. Please see below for our updated school day schedule times.
8:00 A.M. – 3:15 P.M.
7:45 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.
Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, all classes beginning in June will be offered in an online format. The format for classes scheduled to start in July will be determined by mid-June. Due to the uncertainty of the pandemic and restrictions that could be in place, the school may need to offer these in an online format or cancel classes altogether. We will continue to provide updates and answers as they become available.
Please visit our Summer Semester webpage for a full list of courses and a link to registration!
If you have questions about offerings or registration, please email our Summer Semester Coordinator, Joseph Simboli.
Please fill out the following forms as applicable and return to Nurse Robin Smith. If you have any questions, please contact Nurse Robin Smith.
