    EHS & VTVLC/VHS course drop guidelines: Even though VHS & VTVLC have their own drop procedures, students can drop one of those classes up to 10 school days after Quarter 1 ends (or Quarter 3 for a semester 2 class) with no impact on transcript (nothing will show up at all). If the course is dropped after the 10 day mark, a grade of W (withdraw) with no GPA bearing will be added to the transcript.Talk to the EHS VTVLC/VHS coordinator Aaron Mason with any questions.
