Welcome to VRES – A place where we Show Pride every day!
Our school has the privilege of working with over 650 students spanning from prekindergarten through grade 6. The school day begins at 8:15 a.m. and ends at 3:15 p.m. The school day for our prekindergarten students will end earlier at 2:30 p.m. Parents dropping off their child(ren) may do so no earlier than 8:00 a.m. Please understand there is no supervision for students before that time. For parents in need of before or after school supervision, please contact the Rensselaer Boys and Girls Club for information about their programs.
