Since Governor Roy Cooper has announced that North Carolina public schools will be able to reopen under either Plan B or Plan C, each county is working to create a detailed plan for its students and staff.
Pitt County schools will be reopening on August 17th under Plan B, a hybrid between virtual and in-person learning. The school boards of Carteret, Craven, and Onslow counties have all decided on a Plan B opening for schools.
Under Plan B, schools will reopen at 50% capacity. Every week, each group of students will receive two days of in-person instruction; either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a cleaning day when no students will receive in-person instruction. Virtual education will be provided on the days in which students are not physically at school. All parents have the option to enroll their children for virtual learning only. School-provided breakfasts and lunches will be available for students Monday through Friday, for remote and in person instruction.
Pitt County is asking that parents register their students for either the A/B schedule under plan B or 100% virtual learning by July 27th. Wayne and Lenoir County schools will also be reopening under plan B, but both counties are still working on a detailed plan
