WS/FCS Board of Education pauses student re-entry plan

In a regularly scheduled meeting, the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Board of Education voted to pause the district’s phased re-entry plan for students in grades 2 through 12.

Based on recommendations by Interim Superintendent Tricia McManus, the board voted to bring students not currently in classrooms, back to classrooms in January. Grades 2, 3 and 6 will return Jan. 11.  Grades 4,5,7 and 8 return Jan. 18.  The first high school cohort will return Jan. 21.

Students currently in school, Pre-K through 1, EC, ESL Academy and OCS students, will continue with in-person instruction as scheduled.

The board also committed to continue monitoring COVID-19 metrics and revisit the phased re-entry plan, if necessary or state guidance suggests otherwise.
