Start of School | Wednesday, September 2
We look forward to re-gathering our community in the safest and healthiest way possible. As we have watched prevailing health trends both locally and nationally, it has become increasingly apparent that adhering to risk mitigation strategies encouraged by our public health officials are important to a successful start to our year together. We know that many of you are traveling toward the end of August, and we ask our families to be considerate of others and to set aside the two weeks prior to September 2 to remain at home so that our community is healthy when students and teachers return to the classroom.
Start of Fall Athletics
Veritas School is a member of the Virginia Independent School Athletics Association (VISAA), the League of Independent Schools (LIS), and the Virginia Preparatory League (VPL), all of which are committed to providing opportunity for interscholastic athletics in the safest way possible, beginning with sports that are deemed low risk. In keeping with their guidelines, we have revised our fall start dates as follows:
- HS Boys and Girls Cross Country - Practice will begin Monday, August 3
- MS Boys and Girls Cross Country - Practice will begin Monday, August 10
- Girls Tennis (MS and HS) - Practice will begin Monday, August 3
- Girls Volleyball (MS and HS) - Practice will begin Tuesday, September 8
- Boys Soccer (MS and HS) - Practice will begin Tuesday, September 8
August practices will run from 8 - 10 AM; once school begins, practices will be held after school as usual. Families with students enrolled in fall sports should log in to the Commons and check the team pages for full details about competitions and practice dates.
