Current Information on Schools Re-opening (Update July 15, 2020)
Yesterday, North Carolina Governor, Roy Cooper announced that NC Schools may choose to utilize Plan B to reopen schools on August 17. Ashe County Schools leadership are currently finalizing what Plan B (https://www.asheschools.org/Page/6185) will look like in our schools. We know Plan B could present challenges for our families and we are exploring ways to better serve all of our students in grades Pre-K through 12.
Protocols will be in place under this plan for social distancing, facial coverings, and extra cleaning of facilities. As always, our number one priority will be the safety of our students and our staff.
We are excited to offer a Virtual Academy option to those parents who would like their children to learn from home. We will have more information available soon and will be in contact with those parents that indicated this choice on the survey.
We appreciate everyone’s patience as we finalize our plan and we are excited about the opportunity to have our students back in school both in person and virtually.
