State of Emergency

Update on End of Year Grading 4/29/2020: State Board of Education Policy for Grading Practices for Students Grades K-11

Update from Superintendent 4/24/2020: I’m sure by now many of you have heard that Governor Cooper has made the decision that schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year. I’m also sure that decision will cause many questions and concerns. In addition to letting you know about the decision, I also want to let you know that we will begin working on plans for how to continue remote learning, child nutrition services, and closing out the school year next week and communicate with you as soon as we have plans in place. In addition, I know that many of you have questions about grading, graduation, students who need things for going off to college or the military in the fall, and other important details that come with the ending of a school year. We will also be communicating about those things. Please know that principals are working with staff to handle communication specific to the needs of each school building. That will continue. Announcements and information from me will be more big picture items. Thank you so much for what you have done for your children and our students during this unprecedented crisis. I will be in touch soon. Take care and be well.

Update from Governor Cooper’s office 3/23/2020: Executive Order to close K-12 public school statewide through May 15, bans mass gatherings over 50 people, closes some businesses.

Update from Superintendent 3/14/2020: Governor Cooper has just announced that all NC Public Schools will be closed for at least two weeks beginning Monday, March 16. At this time, this is all we know. There is a conference call scheduled for Sunday, March 15 at 3:00pm to provide guidance to superintendents and School Boards. There will be many questions about many areas (how to continue educating students, child nutrition, employee pay, etc.). Please know that we will get accurate information to you as soon as we have it. I ask that you please wait for information and guidance from us rather than relying on information and guidance being offered on Facebook and other social media outlets. This is a time for facts, not fear and misinformation. My promise to you is to keep you informed as I become informed. Thank you for your support and be well.
