2020-2021 School Year Re-Entry Plans
2020-2021 School Year Re-Entry Plans 07/15/2020
Gov. Roy Cooper announced on July 14, 2020, that N.C. public schools would return to school for the 2020-2021 academic year utilizing a mixture of in-person and remote learning (Plan B), but also allowing school districts flexibility to utilize remote learning as an option for all students.
Cabarrus County Schools has plans in place to facilitate the blended learning approach, as well as plans for remote learning exclusively. Students will begin the new school year attending school one day each week for in-person learning and spend the remainder of the week utilizing remote learning. Under this plan, students will be divided into groups to stagger their attendance, optimizing social distancing in buildings and classrooms. Per the governor’s orders, students and staff will be required to wear a face covering and will have temperature screenings each day they attend school in person.
We are looking forward to the start of the 2020-2021 school year and welcoming everyone back to school, but we know we must make decisions that protect the health and safety of our students and staff. CCS will continue to rely on guidance from the health professionals at Cabarrus Health Alliance and will use their guidance to inform our decisions as we prepare to return to school.
As we have since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, we will continue to be nimble and flexible – knowing that our plans may change based on changes in the current health situation. We may begin the school year under one scenario and have to pivot and adjust a few months or weeks in. Our promise to you is that when adjustments or changes are required, we will be timely in our communication about the changes. We will share more details about our return to school in the days ahead as we finalize our plans for the new school year.
