WEEK OF NOVEMBER 23, 2015:
2015-16 VASJ YEARBOOKS: Place your presale order for the 2015-16 yearbooks today. Yearbooks can be ordered online or by check using the form. Get your yearbook for half-price if you order by December 30. All information can be found on our website atvasj.com/yearbook.
AFTER SCHOOL PARKING: THE FRONT DRIVE (FACING LAKESHORE) IS NOT TO BE USED FROM 2:30 P.M. ON FOR STUDENT PICK-UP BY PARENTS OR RELATIVES. This area is reserved for the use of VASJ transportation vans so that students can have access so they can get on the road as quickly as possible.
Parents (relatives/friends, etc.) are NOT permitted to park in the curb lane on Lakeshore Blvd. in front of the school. Please notice that there are NO PARKING and NO STOPPING signs that run from East 185th Street past the school property.These violations cause two issues: the parked cars block the line of site of the VASJ vans exiting the crescent drive and the blocked curb lane forces the two lanes of traffic into one lane, adding to the safety concerns of pedestrians and our students. If this issue continues we will be forced to ask for assistance from the Cleveland and Euclid Police Departments.
