Valencia Counseling Events Calendar





The opening day of the 2016- 2017 school year, Monday, August 29, 2016 is rapidly approaching.  We have set aside five days in August to assist our students with completing all necessary preparations prior to beginning school. Please review the enclosed Back to School Days information for the specific date and time that your student should report. If you cannot come at your assigned time, you must wait until the make-up day.



The Back to School process includes verifying course request schedules, picking up I.D. cards, purchasing P.E. clothing, A.S.B. cards, or other spirit items, processing of requests for senior lunch passes (parent must be present), clearance of debts, etc. All debts must be cleared through the finance office prior to Station 1. As you can see there are many preparations that must be completed prior to your student attending classes on August 29, 2016. It is for this reason that attendance at Back to School Days is strongly suggested.



For those wishing to expedite the purchasing process, please take advantage of our online VHS store to pre-pay for your Back to School items. A link to the VHS store can be found on our school website at Please bring your printed receipt with you to pick up any pre-paid items on your assigned registration day.



Included in this mailer is an emergency card (white) and health card (yellow). Both cards must be completely filled-out, signed by the parent/guardian and returned by your student on their assigned registration day. Please include several responsible adults (18 years of age or older) as emergency contacts.  In case of an emergency your student can only be released to the adult individuals listed on their emergency card. 


Failure to submit the completed cards and/or address change will result in a request for the parent/guardian to submit a Residency Verification Form and Affidavit prior to the continuation of Back to School Days. Proof of residency for an address change must start in the Counseling Office prior to Station 1.



Course Request Schedules will be distributed to your student during Back to School Days. The course request schedule is not your student’s opening day schedule. It is merely a listing of the courses your student indicated they would like to take during the 2016-17 school year.



The Back to School Days process provides students an excellent opportunity to ask their counselor questions regarding their course request schedules prior to the opening day of school.  Students with questions should go to the Career Center after they have completed the Back to School Days process. Due to the high volume of students requesting to see their counselor, please be prepared to wait.  It is important to remember that these are short meetings involving course changes only. Counselors will only see a student on the student’s designated date and time. Counselors will not be available to see students in the afternoon.



Students participating in the athletic program need to be cleared by Mr. McConnell, Athletic Director, the week of August 17th. The athletic packet can be obtained from our athletic website ( under Athletic Files. Students must have all items in the athletic packet completed, including a current physical exam, to be eligible for practice.
