Expectations for Distance Learning

Onslow County Schools

Learning from Home


Student/Parent Guidance



As we work together to educate our children in this time of challenge, we have established some guidelines to support the remote learning process. While there is no substitute for a nurturing, relationship-driven classroom, we believe, that with your assistance, we can continue to provide students with quality instruction and meaningful learning opportunities. Students in grades 3-12 have been learning in a blended classroom in Onslow County for almost six years. Students will still work, turn in assignments, and access instruction in Microsoft Teams just as they have been doing in their classrooms. By working together to support our students, we know we will be able to overcome the challenges we face. The following information is provided as general guidance as we begin the remote learning process. You will receive additional school/class-specific information from your child’s school and/or teacher.

Internet Access Free Pass by Spectrum

Spectrum to offer free internet to students during Coronavirus outbreak


By WECT Staff | March 15, 2020 at 1:08 PM EDT - Updated March 15 at 1:08 PM

(WECT) - Charter Communications announced today that the company will offer its Spectrum Internet services to students amidst the current Coronavirus epidemic.

Beginning on Monday, March 16, Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access will be available to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription.

Currently, this promotion is scheduled to last for 60 days after March 16.

Additionally, Charter will reach out to school districts in order to raise awareness in communities that their tools and services are available for free use so that students have the option to learn remotely from home.

A post on the company’s website explains, “As the country works collaboratively to contain this pandemic, broadband internet access will be increasingly essential to ensuring that people across the country are able to learn and work remotely, that businesses can continue to serve customers, and that Americans stay connected and engaged with family and friends.”

To enroll, call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.

Packets vs. Digital Teacher Instruction

There have been questions about the packets that we provided. Some people are under the impression that the students are to complete both the packets and digital assignments. Others assume that either is acceptable. Just to be clear, the grade-specific packets that were provided by the school(s) are not a replacement for the teacher's digital instruction.



The district is moving away from packets. If packets are required, they will be made available electronically only. This is for the safety of our families and our staff. Please contact your teacher if you have any issues accessing them.



Again, free internet access is provided by Spectrum for households that have a k-12 student and do not already have internet access through Spectrum.
