Orientation Information:
There are (2) two required orientations for VHS:

  1. The Program orientation is ONLINE and the link will be included in your enrollment confirmation email - sent to the student email after enrollment is confirmed. If you have previously completed the program orientation with 100% - let your VHS instructor know once the session begins. The goal of the program orientation is to introduce the student to VHS program policies and the learning management system (D2L/Brightspace). 

    The Program Orientation must be completed with 100% by September 9, 2019. Students use their 6 digit PWCS ID as the identifier and can work on the lesson over time or in one sitting. It takes approx. 2.5 hours.

  2. The Course orientation - Face-to-Face Orientation - VHS students (new or previous students) are required to attend the F2F Orientation on Monday, September 9th at Patriot HS.  The Orientation Schedule is posted below.  Please locate your course and teacher.  There will be two sessions; Session 1 will be 5:00pm - 6:45pm and Session 2 will be 6:45pm - 8:30pm.  All sessions begin in the Auditorium.  Students will be released to their designated classrooms after the Introduction session.

THIS SCHEDULE IS FOR REGULAR VHS COURSES ONLY.  IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE BATTLEFIELD HYBRID PROGRAM OR THE OP GOVERNOR SCHOOL PROGRAM.  THESE PROGRAMS WILL HAVE THEIR SEPARATE ORIENTATIONS.

 

If a student cannot attend the course orientation in person they must login on that day and complete the assignments from home and attend a virtual classroom live lesson session on the date/time posted by their instructor.

Any student enrolled in HPE I or HPE II must attend one of two "fitness nights."  This meeting is to issue the heart rate monitor and provide required training on how to use it correctly. Students will not be allowed to take either HPE I or II unless they attend one of these meetings. This does not replace orientation. Students must be fully enrolled to attend.

HPE II Drivers Education Information

Classroom drivers education is a required component of the HPE II credit.  VHS students have two options to complete this requirement:

  1. VHS Saturday Option: We highly recommend students take the classroom drivers education component in person with our instructor (see dates below).  There is no charge/fee for this option. 
  2. VADETS online option: students can take the course online with VADETS.  Registration is on their website. We have no control over the quality or responsiveness of non-VHS drivers education courses. Students in the VADETS course must complete the final exam and receive their DEC1 card at least two weeks before the end of the VHS session.  Parents must find a proctor for that exam. 

Option 1 details: VHS Drivers Education Saturday Sessions with VHS instructor. Absences are not permitted. Patriot High School - room 1312 enter via door 20. Please be on time as doors will be locked for entry once the session begins. In case of inclement weather, the instructor(s) will send you a Remind link sign up so you will receive text notifications of changes:
