Changes to Plan B

The district announced on Tuesday the delay of bringing students back on campus in Plan B. Instead, all students will begin the school year in online instruction. This decision was made after close examination of current Wake County COVID-19 data. You may view local Wake County Government data here. This site is updated three times per day.

 

The first two weeks of school for all students will focus on orientation, meet and greet opportunities, and distribution of supplies. Students will not be initially divided into groups A, B, C during the first two weeks.

 

Please note the start date for Modified calendar schools has been changed from Aug. 3rd to Aug. 13th.  This date applies to both VA and  Plan B transition students.  The last day of the school year will be June 11, 2021. 

View updated calendars.
