When schools resumed in August, students, teachers, and staff had to combat the ongoing safety and health concerns of the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic.

At the beginning of the school year the state forbid schools to allow students to return to buildings full time, but in early September North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper announced it was time to all elementary students back into classrooms.  The announcement means school districts are allowed to open full time for students beginning October 5. 

In South Carolina, Governor Henry McMaster called for schools to open for in-person learning five days a week over the summer. However, some local districts preemptively announced other plans for their own communities.

 As school districts continue to announce their updated plans, WCNC Charlotte is committed to providing you the latest in the evolving details. Details will be added and updated as information becomes available.
