PLEASE CALL US AT (434) 447-8134 TO LET US KNOW IF YOUR STUDENT(S) WILL ACCESS SCHOOL VIRTUALLY ONLY THIS FALL BY 4:30 PM THURSDAY, JULY 16. Our summer office hours are Monday through Thursday from 7:45 to 4:45.
Mecklenburg County Public Schools believe we can safely open schools with face to face instruction four days a week and one day a week virtual learning. We will take precautions to prevent the spread of the virus. Students will be required to wear face coverings for at least some portion of the day, and we will practice proper hygiene. Adults will wear face coverings when they need to be closer than six feet to a student or other adult. We want to minimize transmission and we believe face to face instruction may be done in this manner.
We understand there may be families who do not want their student(s) to attend school in a face to face model for any number of reasons. We offer to engage with these students through a virtual/computer-based model of instruction.
We know you may still have many questions. We are working to share more information about this plan on our website and social media.
We need your help in planning. IF YOU WANT YOUR STUDENT(S) TO LEARN VIRTUALLY THIS FALL, we need you to call us and let us know. If you do not call us, we will assume your child(ren) will be returning for face to face instruction.
CHANGES TO THE 2020-2021 RETURN TO SCHOOL PLAN:
On July 7, 2020, the MCPS School Board voted to change the Return to School Plan. Families will now have the option for their student(s) to return to school Monday-Thursday every week OR do virtual learning.
Changes were also made to the 2020-2021 School Calendar. The new calendar that was approved tonight is attached. The start date for students has been changed to September 8, 2020, and the last day of the school year was moved to June 16, 2021.
