With the chance of increased moisture combined with possible sub-freezing temperatures, VMISD will be having a delayed start at 10:00AM on Friday, February 3rd. This means that buses will run 2 and ½ hours behind their normally scheduled times. A breakfast option will be offered. This delayed start will provide additional time in the morning to allow for safe transportation. Stay safe Eagles!
Out of an abundance of caution, and taking into account the safety of all stakeholders in our district, VMISD will be closing school tomorrow, February 2nd. Although it looks as though the weather will improve throughout the day tomorrow, it would not be safe to run our bus routes in the morning to get students to school. It is with this consideration in mind that the decision was made to cancel school. VMISD will always put the safety and security of our students and staff above all else. We hope you all stay safe and warm and we look forward to resuming classes on Friday, February 3rd.
Due to the ongoing inclement weather circumstances, VMISD will be closed on Wednesday, February 1st. We will continue to monitor weather conditions moving forward in order to make a determination about the status of school for Thursday, February 2nd. Please look for updates as this is a fluid situation at this point. Thank you for your patience, and please stay safe and warm!
While observing the current forecast and future radar for our area, there is a significant likelihood for freezing rain and/or wintry mix this afternoon and throughout Tuesday morning. These possible conditions would make it risky for afternoon transportation for our students, families and staff members. With safety being the primary concern for our stakeholders, we will be having an early release today, January 30th at 1:30 pm. Valley Mills ISD will also be closed Tuesday, January 31st. We will be paying close attention to the forecast in order to make a determination about Wednesday, February 1st. It is our hope that this advanced notice will allow our stakeholders to prepare and make plans for the possible inclement weather. Stay safe, Eagles!

All fire evacuation procedures were followed and no students or staff were in danger. Law enforcement was contacted and arrived promptly to assist the situation. The situation was determined to be cleared, and students returned to their classrooms as normal.
Announcement: Valley Mills Elementary was alerted by our School Resource Officer that there was a possible threat outside of the school at the Backroads Food and Fuel.
