DoDEA Operations in a "Government Shutdown"

In the event of a lapse in appropriations after September 30, 2023 leading to a “government shutdown”, DoDEA schools will remain open for normal operations, except for sports (including practices) and extracurricular activities which will pause during a shutdown.

Principal's Corner

Dear Vicenza HS Students, Parents, and Guardians,

It as been another great week of learning at Vicenza High School, capped off today with the official ribbon cutting ceremony of our new facility. US and Italian dignitaries braved a light rain to celebrate our amazing school and the student learning that it facilitates. The JROTC Color Guard, the cheer squad, and our combined chorus did a fantastic job in making the ceremony a memorable one. Go Cougars!

Here’s what’s happening at our school:

Tuesday, 19 September, is an early release day. Students will be dismissed at 11:05 a.m. at all Vicenza schools so that teachers can analyze student performance data from the end of last year to inform this year’s instructional planning.

VHS will hold its annual Wellness Day on the morning of the 19th. Students will cycle through sessions led by school and community service providers on the following topics:

Decision Making; Building Connections (grades 9 & 10)/ Sexually Transmitted Infections (grades 11 & 12); School-life Balance; Healthy Relationships; Using DoDEA’s School Links. The

Wellness Day Point of Contact is School Psychologist, Mr. Mark Gillett,
