Beyond the Curriculum

Recognizing that there’s more to school than just lessons and assignments, we will continue to be there for our students in a variety of ways beyond the curriculum.  Among the resources available to students and families at this time:

  • Advising: Our Form Advisors will continue to track student progress and are available for questions from students and parents.  Many Forms have created Google Classroom spaces for announcements and other non-curricular communication, which they’ll be sharing directly with students via email.
  • Counseling: Our counselor, Ms. Stacey Marnell, is available for individual consultations and conversations regarding mental health, whether related to the coronavirus or not. She will be working with the faculty and Form Advisors to recommend resources and create programs for students. Parents and students alike are welcome to reach out to Ms. Marnell at and should keep an eye out for recommended resources from her in the coming days.
  • Library: All students can join the Google Classroom set up by Mrs. Dunlavey (code: vetwjco) with links and information on the many databases and other resources the school subscribes to.  Additionally, our library website is a great resource for students and faculty alike.
  • Extracurricular Activities: A number of clubs will continue to “meet” virtually in the form of online discussions and the like.  Some faculty have already set up Google Classrooms and been in touch with club members, but interested students are welcome to reach out to faculty moderators with ideas - our clubs always rely on student leadership and initiative, regardless of whether we’re meeting on site or at a distance.
