Valley City  (VCPS)  City Public Schools Superintendent Josh Johnson has issued an updated statement.

He said “For the past two weeks, our school district has had between 3 to 8 active Covid-19 cases involving our students and staff. Because we do NOT want our students to be excluded (as close contacts) from school, activities, prom, and graduation, we believe it is important that we continue with the current mask protocols.

He said our planning for next fall is focused on returning to NORMAL operations/functioning within our school district. In addition to the elimination of masks and other protocols, we will be excited to welcome back parents and community members into our schools in ’21-22.

Johnson also said, Valley City Public Schools will be celebrating ALL EDUCATORS during the week of May 3-7. In addition to our outstanding teachers, we will recognize cooks, custodians, counselors, paraprofessionals, aides, administrative assistants, and others during this very special week. We welcome everyone to join us in celebrating all educators at Valley City Public Schools.
