How to Communicate

We know that students are most successful when we communicate and work together. We encourage you to email the person who is most directly responsible for the answer to your question. Because our work during the day is concentrated around our students, our goal is to get back to you within 48 hours on school days.

Please see the staff list at http://vlc.rths.ca/our- staff/staff-list/ for emails and links to staffs' learning management systems.

First Contact - Connect Teacher
