Return to the Classroom!

On Thursday, September 17, Governor Cooper announced that NC Public Schools will have the option to allow all students to return to school under Plan A as soon as October 5, 2020. This announcement aligns with the current GCPS plan to bring our students back to school physically in a gradual, staggered entry progressing over time. Having the option for K-5 students to return on Plan A provides the next step in our district’s goal of having all students able to return to school when it is safe to do so. Our Board of Education and administration will continue to closely monitor the readiness indicators for our district and community. Currently, GCPS will shift to students physically reporting to school on alternating days of the week under Plan B beginning on September 28 for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten students and special education students who receive instruction in a separate setting, and all other grades will return on October 12. The district will continue to include stakeholders in the planning and decision-making of safely bringing our children back to school. GCPS is thankful for the continued patience, grace and support during this time.
