    Public Announcement:

    Governor Roy Cooper Delays Reopening NC Schools Plan

    Governor Roy Cooper announced this afternoon at 3 pm that no decision regarding the reopening schools will be made within a couple of weeks.  He has encouraged school districts to continue to work on re-entry plans with the goal of starting school face-to-face. 

    A source with knowledge of the discussions had heard that Cooper is still grappling with conflicting demands related to the spread of the coronavirus and the need to get students back to school.

    Our focus is on developing our plans with an emphasis on the health and safety of our students and staff. I will keep you updated as I learn more.

    Take care and Stay Safe,

     Dr. Barry Williams


    *Please take the time to fill out the survey on the district's website regarding School Reopening.  Your input is important!
