***On July 14th, Governor Cooper made an announcement regarding the reopening of schools for the 2020-2021 school year. Under this executive order schools will open under Plan B, which will include a combination of in-person and remote learning. Alleghany County Schools has been awaiting this information in order to finalize our plans for reentry for the upcoming school year. Alleghany County Schools will also provide a virtual only option in addition to the combination learning in Plan B. We will be sharing additional information with families and community members as soon as possible. Please know that, first and foremost, our commitment is to the safety and well-being of our students and staff. The current situation is unprecedented and it is a challenging time for everyone. We appreciate the support of our wonderful community and are grateful for our dedicated teachers and staff. We are all committed to doing what is best for our students.***
As we plan for the return of all students on August 17th, Alleghany County Schools is working hard to make our campuses safe. We are currently awaiting further information from Governor Cooper on guidelines for schools. Alleghany County Schools plans to offer a virtual option for students in grades K-12 for any who feel uncomfortable returning to face-to-face instruction in the Fall. Our district will continue to keep sharing updates as we receive more information.
Masks are required to be worn at all Alleghany County Schools campuses, Bus Garage, Maintenance Shop and the Central Office. Thank you for your cooperation!
Due to low or lack of participation at Piney Creek, Glade Creek, and Sparta Elementary meal pick-up will no longer be available at those sites beginning Monday, July 13th. Meals will still be available for pick-up between 11:30 and 12:30pm at Alleghany High School.
Sparta School's mission is to ensure that all students are productive and successfully transition to high school. This will be accomplished by holding high expectations from all major stakeholders--student, parents, community and staff--and providing developmentally appropriate instruction for all students.
It is the vision of Sparta School to promote a safe learning environment where all children can succeed. The ultimate goal is to teach children to be responsible self-directed learners who can adapt to an ever-changing society.
