Vance County High School Graduation 2022

Vance County Early College Graduation 2022

  • May 24, 2022

    We want to update our VCMS families with information following today’s school closure. With extensive electrical damage to the school from last night’s storms, Vance County Middle School will remain closed for students on Wednesday, May 25, 2022. All staff will report to The Center for Innovation auditorium at 9:30am on Wednesday, while students are encouraged to review and prepare for their End of Grade exams at home. 

    With the VCHS school year having ended, we are able to utilize that campus to resume school for VCMS. On Thursday, May 26, school will resume for all VCMS students and staff on the campus of Vance County High School. Buses for students will follow the same schedule but will be delivered to VCHS instead of VCMS. All car riders should be dropped off and picked up at Vance County High School (925 Garrett Rd). Breakfast and lunch will be provided as usual. Students will begin their End-of-Grade exams on Thursday with staff on hand to support students in getting to their test site. 

    Vance County Middle School will continue reporting to Vance County High School until further notice. We appreciate your understanding and look forward to finishing this year strong.
