Return to Learn
In light of the significant updates to the Strong Schools Toolkit on July 21, 2021, Buncombe County Schools is working to finalize our Back-to-School Safety Plan. Our administrators will be doing that in the coming days, in consultation with school stakeholders such as our local health department and school board members, and we'll be able to provide more information to our staff and families soon!

As we Return to Learn in Buncombe County Schools, this page will be updated with the latest school and safety information. Our county's primary source of health information can be found at the Buncombe Ready website.
