Vassar Parents,

Now that our school year is over, please know that your child’s 3rd quarter report card is available through the Parent Portal in Infinite Campus. The link is on the Vassar website. We will not be mailing out paper copies to you this year and the electronic copy in the Parent Portal is only available to you until July 1st.  Due to the stay at home order in March and April, students will not be getting a 4th quarter grade.

In addition, if you have a school or district Chromebook, please plan to keep it until we return to school.  Your child can use it for i-Ready learning until July 1st.  Plan on having your child bring it back to school with them when we return as a whole school community. 

If you are moving out of Aurora Public Schools, and have a Chromebook, please email the school Clerk, Pam Whyte at pwhyte@aurorak12.org or call Vassar and leave a message so we can try to arrange to pick it up from you as soon as possible.

If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message on the school phone or email the Principal, Stacey Stuart.

Stay safe and healthy and enjoy your summer.

Spring photos, class photos and yearbooks are on hold until the stay-at-home order is lifted. More information on when parents may pick up these items will be sent in a voicemail and email to families.
