In conjuction with the NC Department of Health and Human Services and Mako Medical, our district will provide testing at our schools each week. If you wish for your child to participate in this program, you will need to complete the registration information that comes home with your child. Weekly testing is one of the many layers of protection we have in place to keep our students and staff safe. To learn more about StrongSchools NC COVID-19 testing, you can visit

  • August 30, 2021 VCS Update

    Due to the steady increase of COVID-19 cases throughout the region, Vance County Schools will reinstate temperature wellness checks for all staff and students, beginning September 1, with a threshold of 100.0 F. Temperature checks are one of the many layers of protection VCS has to keep wellness and safety as our main priority. 

    Vance County Schools continues to update the district dashboard for COVID-19 data each morning, which shows the cases by school. We continue to be transparent in our communication with our families. Should your child be directly impacted by cases inside of a school, you will be contacted by the school nurse and/or school principal. 

    As always, we advise you to monitor your child's health, follow the CDC guidelines, and contact your primary care physician if you develop any COVID-19-related symptoms. We are vigilant about working with local and state health officials to investigate all reported or suspected cases of COVID-19 in our school community.

    We appreciate your ongoing support of our efforts to continue requiring face coverings, implementing temperature checks and ensuring we do all that we can to provide a safe learning environment for your child.
