    Vance County Schools Moving to Plan A for PreK-8
    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.

    Parents have two options, as indicated below:

    Option A: My student will return to face-to-face instruction for 4 days per week (Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday) with Wednesday being a remote day.

    Option B: My student will enroll in a fully virtual program with an assigned learning guide.

    Please note:
    * All students in grades 9-12 will continue on the current Plan B with no changes and should not complete this survey.
    * V3 students do not need to complete this survey, as their school remains virtual with no changes.
    Plan A
    All families with students in PreK through 8th grades must complete the Plan A form indicating the option being chosen for their child. Parents will need to complete a form for each child in grades PreK through 8th grades. For a visual look at the two options in English and Spanish, visit

    If you need to change your child's instructional model, you must contact Mrs. Somerville.
