Hello VAPA Community. This is Dr. Trimis. Monday is a Late-Start Day.

Hola, comunidad de VAPA. Este es el Dr. Trimis. El lunes es un día de inicio tardío.

Senior photos and make-up ID photos are scheduled for October 15 at Legacy. The Senior Sunrise Event, just for the Legacy Class of 2022, will be at Legacy at dawn on 10/16/21. Please see our website and Class of 2022 Schoology Group for more information.

Please note students must be in class by 8:30 am every day. We are still having a number of students arrive late and they are missing the first part of Period 1. We will implement our tardy policy beginning this week. All students must have a time/dated tardy slip to be admitted to class.

Please note outside food and drinks are not allowed in classrooms. Because some students are confronting teachers at the classroom door, we will no longer be able to allow drinks and snacks to be brought in if we see them at the front gate. This is aligned with all of the Legacy Complex schools and the Welcome Center. Please also note students may bring in their own packaged lunch to eat outside during lunch in the covered eating area, if they choose to do so. However, all students are provided lunch from the district. Please do not drop off food at lunchtime or order food from Grub Hub, Door Dash, or other services. This food will not be delivered to students.

There have been several questions regarding the COVID19 vaccination deadlines for students and next steps. Please note all students participating in extracurricular activities and/or athletics must be fully vaccinated by October 31 in order to continue participating.  In order to meet the deadline, students must receive their first dose no later than October 3 and their second dose no later than October 31.

Looking forward, we are thrilled to bring back live, in-person performances VAPA, following all COVID safety protocols including mask-wearing. We will present Frozen the Musical Nov. 18-20 and Winterfest on Dec. 3 for Music and Dec. 10 for Dance. Tickets will be sold online at with a limited number of cash sales out of the Student Store the day of the event, excluding Saturdays.

Be sure to check our website and social media platforms for more information at

Have a great week, and, I’ll SEE YOU AT SCHOOL!

Take Care,

Dr. Edward Trimis, Principal
