'Return to Learn' Update #8 (12/03/2020)

From December 14-18, all students remain under Plan B but the school day will be on regular school hours instead of the one-hour early dismissal. This plan will continue when students return from Winter Break and begin the second semester on January 4. It will remain in effect for a minimum of four weeks. 

Our schools will follow up with families to clarify what the new school hours will be beginning on December 14. 

February 1

-All K-4 schools will remain under a Plan B schedule with adding alternating in-person instruction on Wednesdays.

For example, Week One- Group A attends Monday,Tuesday, Wednesday; Group B attends Thursday and Friday

Week Two- Group A attends Monday, Tuesday; Group B attends Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday.

-Grades 5-12 and Buncombe Co. Early College (BCEC) will remain under a Plan B schedule with regular daily hours and asynchronous Wednesdays

The intent of the board is that on March 1:- K-4 transitions to Plan A, 5 days a week.
