Virgil News and Announcements
Message From the Principal
Dear Virgil Middle School Community:
 
It is a great honor to inform you that I have been selected to be the new principal of Virgil Middle School.  In my new role as principal, I will invest my full attention to serve the best interests of students, build systems to build our collective capacities and continue the pursuit of excellence for Virgil Middle School.
I am eager and excited to learn, lead and contribute to attaining or surpassing the following goals for the 2016 -17 school year:

By focusing our direction, engaging in collaborative cultures, deepening our learning, and securing our accountabilities to each other we can achieve these goals and more. When we work together to support students in cultivating moral character, intellectual stamina, persistence and creativity, we are preparing them to shape the future of this complex world. In the book Coherence: The Right Drivers in Action for Schools, Districts and Systems Michael Fullan writes, “It is human nature to rise to a larger call if the problems are serious enough and if there is a way forward where we can play a role with others.” I am humbled by the opportunity to lead and serve to this end as we Believe, Behave and Become!
 
Sincerely,
 
William Gurr
Principal

 
Please submit a meal application... Applications now ON-LINE!

We are requesting that every student turn in an Application For Meal Benefits, even if they are eligible or not. If parents do not wish to apply for meal benefits, there is a check box on the application to let us know.

Parents may fill out a paper version of the meal application, which is available at the Main Office or the Cafeteria Manager's Office. For their convenience, parents may fill out an online version of the meal application at https://www.myschoolapps.com/Application

With every student turning in an application, Virgil would continue to receive special funding and opportunities for all our students. So, please make sure that you fill out an application and have your child return the application to their teacher as soon as possible.

Thank you!

Did Your 7th Grade Child Get A Current Tdap Booster Shot?

For the Los Angeles Unified School Districtís (LAUSD) 2016-2017 school year, students entering, advancing or transferring into seventh-grade will need proof of a whooping cough (also known as pertussis) booster immunization, known as Tdap, beginning Aug. 17th, the first day of school. Students who have not received the shot will be sent home and not be able to attend classes.  To see a list of free or low cost clinics in Los Angeles County, please click here. District Health Clinics are also open to give LAUSD students the Tdap booster shot during the year.

Pertussis is a very contagious respiratory disease that can be severe and last for months. The immunity received from either early childhood immunization or pertussis disease wears off over time, leaving older students and adults susceptible again to pertussis. Immunization with Tdap can protect students, schools and communities against pertussis.

The Tdap booster shot, which is a state mandate for public and private schools, is recommended for children over the age of 10 to protect them, and those around them, from whooping cough. All students entering or advancing to the seventh-grade will need a Tdap booster shot in order to attend school after July 1, 2016. Please click here to read more information regarding Pertussis and the Tdap shot.
