Vance At Home eLearning Information and Support

Although students have at-home learning packets for the next 10 days, we wanted families to have access to online resources. For now, these resources are just supplemental, but know that if we go beyond 10 days, classroom teachers will reach out on how they can provide more instructional support, including virtual solutions.

General Information:

  • If you did not receive your packet on Friday, we’ll have a table set up in the Vance Lobby Monday from 9:30 am - 2:30 pmTuesday from 9:30 am-2:30 pm and Wednesday from 12:30 pm-5:30 pm.
