About VHS

  • Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

    I hope your summer has been great and that you’ve been able to find some time to relax and recharge your batteries with your family.  I want to encourage you to look at this new year with optimism.  Instead of approaching another year of school as something that has to be dreaded, I challenge you to consider a quote I found today--"Sometimes we're all too quick to count down the days that we forget to make the days count."  How might you change the way you are approaching this new year to make it feel like a gift?

    I’m excited about the new year that lies before us with all of its challenges and growth opportunities!  This letter will include several important dates and times that you will need to know.  Students will report for the first day of school on August 17, 2023   Student schedules will be available for pickup from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm on August 7th and from 12:00 pm until 6:00 pm on August 8th at VHS.  During this time, students may also purchase parking permits, rent lockers, and pick up ID's. 

    • If your student is going to drive to school, they will need to purchase a parking permit for $10.00.  To purchase these permits, students must present their current driver's license, their vehicle license plate number,  and current proof of insurance. 
    • There will be no charge for the first ID.  Extra ID's may be purchased for $5.00 each.  

    • The fee for locker rental is $5.00.   

    We will host a Meet and Greet on Tuesday, August 15, from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm.  This evening will give you an opportunity to meet your new teachers and to familiarize yourself with your classroom locations.  I hope you will mark your calendars and make plans to attend that night.

    Until then,


    Ronnie Simmons, Principal

    Vilonia High School
