 Family Portal

By clicking the link above, parents and guardians can enter the Family Portal where they can view student lunch activity, make credit card deposits and check student balances.  

First time users will have to create an account. You will need the following information handy in order to access information about your student: Student ID Number and Student Birth Date. Note: If the student ID number begins with a ZERO, delete that zero.

Also in the Family Portal is the 2022-2023 free and reduced price meal application. By filling out the current application, this will help ensure a smooth transition for the new school year. It's a brief application that is needed every new school year.

Note: Free and reduced meal applications are used to determine funding for several VCS programs.

Fill out the application here.

Athletic Physicals 

Athletes can not participate in MHSAA sports unless their digital forms are complete. This includes practices that begin in August for Fall sports in both the high school and middle school.

New for 2022, physicals must be uploaded online to VCS is no longer accepting paper copies.

To upload the documents, an account must first be created with the student's login info. Students login with their school email address and the password is: bigteams.  Then parents/guardians must create a separate account using their own information and link the two. Parents click 'Sign up' and follow the directions. Parents then select ‘link account’ from their menu options. If your student's email is not working or says it is invalid, try a phone number and the password bigteams. 

Note: The program works best from a computer, rather than a tablet or a phone. As of now only the high school is listed. Middle school students should select high school to complete their sign up process.  Each student has to create their own individual account.
