The Johnston County Board of Education approved a back to school plan on Thursday, Sept. 25. Students will be following plan B.
On Oct. 19, all students in grades 1 and 2 will begin attending school all five days under Plan A. They will have to wear masks, but they will go for five days per week. Students in grades 6-12 will begin attending school on Oct. 19 in Plan B on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday, Friday with Wednesday as a remote learning day.
Some students who choose not to go back to school have the option of the Virtual Program. This means that they will have all of their classes online but follow the schedule like they are at school.
All students will be required to wear masks. They will be allowed to take them off while they are eating and during mask breaks. Students’ temperatures will also be taken every morning before they enter the building. The water stations will have cups for students and will be monitored by adult staff. There are more protocols on the school website.
Everyone in the building will be following all CDC guidelines to help students and staff stay safe. The adults at the schools are going to do as best as they can to keep everyone safe this year.
