Teachers' workday is from 7:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m.

We welcome communication between teachers and parents. Several mornings each week teachers are in staff meetings with the principal. Please email or call the teacher's voice mail so they can call you to find out the best time to talk or meet. Staff email and voice mail numbers are on the Vassar website.

Gifted & Talented Information

Parents: If you would like to initiate the GIFTED IDENTIFICATION process for your child, please complete this Gifted Identification form. Be advised, you will need approximately 30 minutes to complete the entire document. There is not a way to save your progress in this form. Once this form is complete and submitted, your school's Gifted Education Facilitator will be notified. They will then gather additional necessary evidence/data to complete the process.

Your facilitator will be in touch with you within 30 school days of receipt of this referral to update you on the process.
