CCS Re-Entry Plan
Published by Beth Sizemore on August 4, 2020
.....................................................................................................................................................................................

As the COVID-19 pandemic looms and the start of a new school year approaches on August 17, we are giving you the chance to decide how your child will be educated during the 2020-2021 school year based on what’s best for your family. This week, our Board of Education approved three plans for the opening of schools: Plan A – Traditional Face-to-Face Learning with Minimal Social Distancing; Plan B – Blended-Remote and Face-to-Face Learning; and Plan C – Total Remote Learning. We understand that Governor Cooper will give his official guidance for reopening school next week. Please know that based on his announcement, our proposed plans are subject to change. But, if the Governor selects Plan B — Blended-Remote and Face-to-Face Learning — it will require you to choose one of three options for your child’s learning experience next year. Detailed information about the options are on the CCS Website. Our re-entry enrollment period, where you will decide what option is best for your child, is open from July 13- 19. Again, please visit the CCS Re-Entry Plan for details.
