Press Release for September 14th

Vinton County Middle School and Vinton County High School students and staff were evacuated on September 14th in response to a bomb threat that occurred on the campus. A School Messenger call went out to inform parents/guardians and request that they pick up their children. In addition, buses were called in for regular route transport. 

Buckeye Hills students and elementary students remained in class throughout the day. 

Law enforcement and explosive detection canines completed a sweep of the campus buildings. Once the two buildings were determined safe to re-enter, briefing sessions occurred with staff at each building. In addition, all personnel were praised for their teamwork and efficiency in this evacuation and early dismissal process. 

Students were permitted back into the facilities this afternoon to get their items from classrooms and lockers.


School administration and law enforcement are currently investigating the threat. 

School will be in session Thursday, September 15 districtwide.

Per Mr. Brooks, VCLSD Superintendent

This statement is issued in response to the incident at Vinton County High School involving students on August 23, 2022.

The Vinton County Local Schools and its administrators take all incidents that involve students very seriously, and we investigate those incidents thoroughly.  Once facts are determined, discipline appropriate to the offense is issued as warranted.  Discipline may include suspension and expulsion from school, suspension from extracurricular activities, and/or suspension from transportation.

Because this matter involves minor students and issues protected by student confidentiality, the Vinton County Local School District will not provide additional details.

All students need a safe learning environment, and safety is of utmost priority for our school district and its administrators.
