L.E.A.P.s 

Vance Middle School offers several after-school activities/clubs available to students through a federal LEAPs grant. LEAP is the acronym for Lottery for Education: Afterschool Programs. In order to sustain funding, students are strongly encouraged to attend at least 30 days throughout the school year.

LEAPs is available to all students Monday-Friday, 3:00-5:30 PM.  On days your student is a remote learner, he/she may check-in to LEAPs by reporting to the VMS cafeteria, door #5 between 2:45-3:00 PM to have their temperature taken or students may select to participate in LEAPs virtually via Microsoft Teams.  To access the Microsoft Teams link, students should open the “VMS Viking Pride” course located in Canvas, then select the Microsoft Teams Link under VMS LEAP.  Transportation will not be provided to and from VMS for remote leaners participating in LEAPs.  For students attending in person, pick-up will be at 5:30 PM.  Upon your arrival to VMS to pick-up your child, please call (423) 534-4211 and your child will be escorted out.
