Vance County Schools will begin Plan A on April 12 for PreK-8th grades. Students who opted to remain fully virtual should check their school email for an invitation to join their Vance at Home class. You can learn more about Vance at Home by visiting our overview video. We are excited to provide opportunities for our PreK-8th grade students to return, while also meeting the needs of those wishing to remain virtual.
Our high school students will continue to operate in Plan B, with two groups/cohorts. There are no changes to their operations.
Beginning April 12, 2021, all Vance County School students in grades PK-8 will return to face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a remote day. Staff and students will continue maintaining social distancing, the use of face coverings, daily temperature checks and other safety guidelines, per NCDHHS and DPI.
Vance County Schools was honored to host a team from the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction, along with NC Representative Terry Garrison, on Monday, March 15. Vance County Schools shared our story, allowing DPI to hear our voices and how we have utilized the last year as a space for opportunities and growth.
Vance County Schools has partnered with OptumServe and Granville Vance Public Health to offer a FREE drive-thru COVID-19 test site for the community, located at Vance County Schools District Office (1724 Graham Avenue). We are excited to support this service and want to let you know this is available should you need it.
The Vance County Schools Board of Education voted at the February 8, 2021 meeting for our district to begin a staggered re-entry for our students, while also providing families the opportunity to remain virtual. Vance County Schools will begin offering a face-to-face option under Plan B for all students, PreK-13 beginning March 3, 2021. Students will be attending school in the building two days each week based upon their cohort assignment. All schools will operate remotely each Wednesday.
The Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program helps families purchase food for children whose access to free or reduced-priced meals at school has been impacted by COVID-19 because students are learning virtually, outside of brick-and-mortar schools. P-EBT is a collaboration between the NC Department of Health and Human Services and the NC Department of Public Instruction.
