As we continue preparing for our return to face-to-face interactions with students, Vance County Schools is working diligently to ensure we are providing all of the necessary safety protocols for the health and wellness of our everyone, prior to student re-entry.
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.
The North Carolina School Public Relations Association (NCSPRA) has honored VANCE COUNTY SCHOOLS for excellence in communications. Vance County Schools earned a total of 9 Blue Ribbon Awards for outstanding and effective communication. NCSPRA presented the awards during a virtual ceremony on February 5, 2021. A Blue Ribbon Award is the highest honor a school district can receive from NCSPRA.
