VANDALIA — The following is important information for parents of students in the Vandalia-Butler City Schools:

Open Lunch

Because they tallied the most points during the Homecoming Spirit Week activities, the Senior class at Butler has been granted an optional open lunch on Friday, Nov. 16. Seniors will be allowed to leave school at 11:33 a.m. and must return no later than 1:03 p.m. in order to report to 6th period on time. Disciplinary action will follow for any student who does not return to class by 1:07 p.m. Seniors who have an approved early release during both 6th and 7th periods will not need to return to school. Seniors will be responsible for their own transportation. Any Senior who wishes to take advantage of the open lunch opportunity, must return the parental permission form (click here) to the main office no later than Tuesday, Nov. 13 by 3:00 p.m.
