Governor Allows Full In-Person Instruction For Elementary Students

Governor Roy Cooper announced today school districts will be given the option to bring Kindergarten — Grade 5 students back for full in-person instruction under school reopening Plan A, effective October 5th. Most school districts chose to begin the school year under Plan C, or virtual instruction, but many districts had begun transitioning into Plan B, which requires moderate social distancing. The Governor stated in a press release that Plan A will now be available to districts due to improvements in safety and prevention measures, as well as more promising COVID-19 trends and data.
