Materials List

The normal requirements for every class that a student takes are a notebook/folder and writing utensils. It is best to have a separate notebook for each individual class so that they may be turned in to the teacher overnight or over a weekend. Students should also bring a pair of earbuds for use when school-owned headphones are not available. Other required materials are listed below.

It is recommended that all students use a planner for recording important dates and homework assignments. All new students will be given a VLHS planner by the first day of school. Other students may purchase a VLHS planner for $5. They will be on sale in the office through the month of September.
