• Important Information Regarding Picking Up Chromebooks, Materials, & Student Belongings

    Good afternoon Valle Crucis School Families, 

    Thank you for your cooperation and understanding during these uncertain times.  We are working very hard to plan instruction for our students, provide materials and assistance as needed. 

    Be sure to frequently check the Watauga County Schools and Valle Crucis School website for updates, instructional information, meal plans and other information. 

    Our teachers will be in frequent communication with you in regards to your children and their instruction  

    Tomorrow we begin our 3 day deployment of devices and learning materials for our students. 



    • A staff member will get your student information and will radio inside for their items to be brought to your car.

    • Only parents or legal guardians will be able to pick up student instructional materials. 

    • Please have your car tag with you if you have one to help with identification. 

    • Please follow the time assigned to your child’s grade level (see schedule at the bottom) and try to space your arrival time to help reduce the amount of traffic on campus. 

    • Students in grades 3-7 will have the option of checking out a laptop for instructional use.  Information will be included on our social media accounts and websites for review. This is not a requirement.  Parents or guardians will have to sign for these devices. Be sure to review this information. 

    • Thank you in advance for your patience as we work hard to get items distributed. We have worked very hard to make this deployment as efficient and safe as possible and we appreciate your help in making this happen.

    NC Check-Ins Information

    NC Check-Ins are interim assessments developed by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) that are aligned to North Carolina grade-level content standards (for reading and mathematics) and North Carolina Essential Standards (for science). 

    The main purpose of NC Check-Ins is to provide students, teachers, and parents, with immediate in-depth action data and a reliable estimate of students’ current performance on the selected subset of content standards. Both the end-of-grade (EOG) tests and the end-of course (EOC) tests share a common item bank with the NC Check-Ins, which then exposes NC Check-In students to similar item types and rigor found on the EOGs and EOCs.

    The NC Check-In administration dates are as follows:

    NC Check-In 1:

    • ELA 4-8 and G4 Math: 17 Oct- 1 Nov 
    • G5 Math: 7-20 Nov
    • G5 Science: Oct-Nov

    NC Check-In 2: January-February
    NC Check-In 3: March-April
