District News & Updates
WELCOME BACK STUDENTS!
I hope all of you had a very relaxing and enjoyable summer break. 

Now it is time to get back into a routine.  With your dedication and hard work in the classroom, Vinton County will produce a District Report Card we can all be proud of at the conclusion of the 2016-2017 school year.

Again, welcome back and have a great school year!

Important Reminders from our Transportation Department
Our goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of each and every student. District buses will only transport students to and from their home address. The only exceptions to this policy are instances of shared parenting, or specific days when your child should go to a caregiver. For these exceptions, we ask that you provide the office of the school where your child(ren) attend with a schedule of these times for the remainder of the school year.
