School Attendance

February 2021, as the governing body of VCS, Vance County School Board voted for the return of daily in-school attendance for all face-to-face and online high school instruction.


All remote learning ceased and the school district returned to on-campus instruction for all face-to-face and online high school instruction. In addition to the successful completion of all NCDPI and VCS high school graduation requirements, students are required to meet the daily attendance requirements as stated in VCS Board Policy 4400.


Only grade 11, 12, and 13 students with authorized documentation on file are permitted to leave campus once all high school and college courses are completed. Grade 9 and 10 students are required to remain on campus the entire day. Students are assigned to a study space during online college courses or when face-to-face college courses are not in session.


Parents, we appreciate your support in ensuring students are present and on time to school and classes, daily.

Vance Co. Schools - Vance-Granville Community College Mask Mandate Update

Vance Co. Schools began optional masking for students and staff in all VCS buildings on Monday, February 28, 2022. Due to federal requirements, face coverings are still required on all buses.



Effective March 2022, VGCC's updated Mask Policy for students, faculty, and staff includes the following:

· masks are optional on all VGCC campus

· VGCC reserves the right to modify the mask requirement with reasonable notice

· students will continue to have access to surgical/procedural masks

· VGCC Civic Center and other meeting spaces will continue "social distancing caps" (Contact VGCC Facilities Coordinator Ms. Sita Makowske at makowskes@vgcc.edu for details)

· Students with positive COVID-19 test results are not expected to attend class in person (VECHS students are asked to notify VECHS Nurse Sanford at rasanford@vcs.k12.nc.us, and VGCC College Liaison Miss Kierra Robinson at robinsonk@vgcc.edu)



VCS & VGCC recognizes that students, faculty, and staff reserve the right to wear facemask at any time. Individuals who experience COVID-19 symptoms, a positive test, or exposure to someone with COVID-19 should wear a mask.
