An eye exam is required for all students entering the public school system or the Illinois public school system for the first time. A dental examination is also required for incoming 9th grade students or students new to the district.
At registration, it is required that all parents provide the school with an emergency phone number where they may be reached during the day.
The Department of Public Health shall establish a waiver for children who show an undue burden or lack of access to a dentist. Each public, private, and parochial school must give notice of this dental examination requirement to the parents and guardians of students at least 60 days before May 15th of each school year.
The school’s photographers will be present on August 15th, 2013 to take pictures for the yearbook and student identification cards. There is no charge for these pictures.
It is important that all students be present to have pictures made on this date. All seniors are required to get ID photos taken at no charge. Substitute photos (3 copies) may be given to the yearbook sponsor by February 1st or the ID photo will be used in the yearbook.
A senior picture must also be submitted to the superintendent’s office by February 1 for the Vienna Times’ senior class issue.
If a student wishes to purchase a picture packet, flyers with prices will be available at this time.
Students must carry their plastic student ID card every day. The first ID card is free, subsequent replacement cards are $5.00 each.
Bus routes will follow the same patterns as last year. If you are new to the district, please call or stop by the high school to determine which bus route and estimated time of pick-up.
All parents are asked to complete a free and reduced lunch application during registration. The goal is to provide all eligible students with free or reduced breakfast and lunch.
Students, who qualify, are also eligible for the $40 book and locker rental fee waiver.
Money may be placed on account at registration or the first day of school for lunch and breakfast. Lunch is $2.25 and breakfast is $1.50. Student’s identification cards are scanned to deduct money from their account.

There will be a $50.00 class fee for driver’s education during the school year for all eligible students, payable to Vienna High School on registration day. This fee must be paid when the student registers for class.
At a later date a $20.00 fee payable to the Secretary of State will be required to take the learner’s permit test. State law requires students to maintain a minimum grade point average to be eligible to get a learner’s permit.
Prior to attending classes, a completed registration form and affidavit or residency must be on file for each student. The school administrator or designee will require at least two documents that prove residency in the district’s boundaries.

Copies of these documents will remain in the student’s temporary file and are required prior to school attendance.
Students who are not residents of the district may attend Vienna High School upon payment per capita tuition.
For further information please see Vienna High School District 13-3 2013-2014 Student-Parent Handbook.
Providing false information to a school district regarding the residency of a student for the purpose of enabling that student to attend school without the payment of nonresident tuition is a class C misdemeanor.
