At Vance County High School, we believe in nurturing and empowering young minds to reach their fullest potential. Our dedicated faculty and staff are committed to providing a stimulating and inclusive learning environment where students can thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. We strive to foster a culture of excellence, curiosity, and collaboration, encouraging our students to become lifelong learners and responsible global citizens. We understand that education is not solely confined to the classroom. That is why we offer a wide range of extracurricular activities and opportunities for personal growth. From sports to the arts, clubs to community service, there is something for everyone to explore their interests and talents. We encourage you to embrace these experiences and make the most of the holistic education we provide. As a community, we value open communication and strong partnerships between the school, parents, and students. We believe the education journey is a joint effort, and your involvement and support are vital to your child's success. We encourage you to stay connected, participate in school events, and engage with our dedicated team of educators.
Parents, please acquaint yourself with the districts's attendance policy. Policy Code 4400 D.- If a student is absent from school for five or more days in a semester, the principal or a committee established by the principal shall consider whether the student’s grades should be reduced because of the absences. The principal or committee shall review other measures of academic achievement, the circumstances of the absences, the number of absences, and the extent to which the student completed missed work.
Class attendance and participation are critical elements of the educational process and may be taken into account in assessing academic achievement. Students are expected to be at school on time and to be present at the scheduled starting time for each class. Students who are excessively tardy to school or class may be suspended for up to two days for such offenses.
