District News & Updates

Important notice to our students and parents...

In regard to the recent allegation of a threat made at the Vinton County High School, an ongoing investigation by school officials and the Sheriff’s Department has revealed at this time there is no evidence of a hit list, no evidence of a weapon and no evidence of threats of physical harm made to Vinton County Students.

We will work closely with the Vinton County Sheriff’s Department as we continue with this investigation. Our staff will exercise every precaution necessary to provide a safe environment for all of our students throughout the district.

We urge you, our parents, to encourage your child to report any suspicious acts or threats of any kind to school personnel immediately. If your child sees something, encourage him/her to say something. We ask our school community to come to us before going to social media when dealing with the safety of your child. School safety is and will continue to be a top priority for our district.
