Dear Viera Families,
I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! We are looking forward to welcoming back our students and staff in the next few weeks. I wanted to reach out to make you aware of some important upcoming dates as we transition back to the start of the school year.
All students must be CLEARED through the Athletic Department prior to tryouts! Please see the link to our athletic packet which you can drop off at the front office or email to Mrs. Davis at firstname.lastname@example.org

We will hold an in-person Registration for all students (new and returning) on Wednesday, August 4th from 7:30 AM – 3:30 PM. Families with completed registration packets will receive a green FAST pass to get through the line very quickly and complete the registration process. If you have not yet turned in all of your registration materials, please contact our guidance office with your student’s registration packet and proof of residency. Failure to do so prior to August 4th will result in significantly longer wait times for families.
Items to Bring to Registration:
- Please bring with you two proofs of residency and $4 for the cost of fees.
- If your student intends to park a car or golf cart on Viera High School’s campus, the fee is $20.
- We accept cash or check only. Credit/debit card payments are not accepted.
To limit lines, we encourage students to come during the below times by grade level.
- Freshmen – 7:30-9:30 AM
- Sophomores – 9:30-11:30 AM
- Juniors – 11:30 AM -1:30 PM
- Seniors – 1:30 PM – 3:30 PM
We are pleased to host a Freshmen Orientation on Friday, August 6th from 9 AM -12 PM for students only. Parents, please drop off your student at the gymnasium entrance at 8:45 AM. Your student will be given a campus tour, meet other students, and learn about all Viera High School has to offer. We will brief them on our school processes and Hawk traditions! We hope this assists our students with having a smooth first day of high school.
1st Day of School
The first day of school for all students in Tuesday, August 10th. School hours are 8:45 AM – 3:30 PM Monday through Thursday and 8:45 AM – 2:15 PM on Friday. We will be transitioning back from the block schedule to a 7 period day.
Communication Throughout the Year
If you are new to Viera High School, I am thrilled to welcome you to our school community. Viera High School offers excellence in academics, athletics, and activities in order to prepare our students and equip them for success during and after high school. We have an incredibly supportive community and an incredible staff. If you are returning to Viera High School, we are thrilled to welcome you back. Communication with families is a priority for our school. I send weekly email updates to families through Blackboard Connect. In addition, I encourage you to follow the Viera High Facebook page. It is updated regularly throughout the school year with important information for you and your students to be aware of.
We are looking forward to soaring to new heights this year with our students, staff, and families. It’s going to be a great year for our Hawks!
