Senior Announcements (4/30/20)
April 30, 2020
Dear VAPA Seniors and Parents or Guardians,
We are now in the last month and a half of the school year and I have some updates for you. I’m sure you agree this has been an unprecedented time for all of us and I am sure not the way our seniors wanted to close their last year of high school. We are finding answers to questions as soon as possible and are working on plans to honor our seniors in a few different ways including signs and messages online.
We have been featuring seniors on our social media sites and website. We are asking ALL seniors to send a photo and plans for college or whatever they will be doing after high school. We need these as soon as possible, ideally before Friday, May 1, so they may be featured in the slide show we are sending to LAUSD to be posted on the LAUSD website. Please send photos and information to Ms. Dadrass at email@example.com.
We are planning virtual or online events for Cinco de Mayo, Senior Awards and Recital, and the National Honor Society Induction. Please look for updates and information on these and any other activities on our website at www.vapalegacy.com , the online website at www.bit.ly/vapaonline, and our social media sites. For planning purposes, these events will be celebrated on or near the traditional dates.
We are looking at a few options for graduation and are awaiting for district approval to move forward including a virtual or online ceremony and some other innovative ideas. As soon as they are approved, we will survey our seniors and families to decide which way we will go.
Please note the following regarding senior dues and refunds. Grad Nite which was a PTSA-sponsored event, was cancelled by Disneyland and refund checks have been mailed out to seniors. The Prom and Panorama Picture have been cancelled. Refund checks for these activities are being written, based on what students paid, and will be distributed as soon as possible, probably next week. T-Shirts and Sweatshirts have already been distributed and the Yearbook is still being produced, so there will not be refunds for these items. Yearbooks will not be done until the Fall and we will have a distribution and signing day when they are ready.
We are so proud of our seniors and all their accomplishments. We hope you will do all you can to stay physically and emotionally fit over the rest of the year, through the summer, and into next year. As difficult as this is, especially for our seniors, this definitely will be a year to remember.
