Captain B by Brandon Smith
Our very own Behavior Support Specialist, Brandon Smith wrote a children's book entitled 'Captain B'. Mr. Smith shared his inspiration behind the story:
"The thought process for the book happened about five years ago. I wanted to develop something that would be part of the solution to help children who were being bullied, as well as their parents. Many times, children and parents don't know how to address bullying and how to help effectively."
This book is the first book in a series of forthcoming Captain B books. 
For more information, please visit Mr. Smith's website,
Student COVID Testing   
VFES has been given a great opportunity to collaborate and participate in The Children’s Hospital of Pennsylvania (CHOP) Project ACE-IT. VFES is now able to provide weekly COVID-19 testing for staff and a select groups of students, such as our senior high school class and our VTC students. 

Additionally, all students, campus-wide, will be eligible for testing if a student develops symptoms during the school day. Click here to read the email that was sent to parents. 

Click here for access to the required consent form. Please read through the form to give consent for testing your child for COVID-related symptoms. 
New Staff Highlight  
We want to extend a very warm welcome to Ms. Aaliyah Simmons who is working as a classroom aide in the Middle School.
“I love coming to work every day. I love the kids I work with and working with Miss Hansen. I want to continue to get to know my students more and work at ESY this summer.”
