Sent July 14 evening:
Dear Parents & Staff:
This afternoon, Governor Cooper announced that all public schools should open under the guidance of Plan B with the option for local school boards to offer Plan C (remote learning only). This announcement included updates from the NC Department of Health and Human Services to the current safety protocols and we will now look into those impacts.
A few of the updates include:
1) Face coverings are required for all students from Kindergarten through 12th Grade in school and on buses, and for all teachers and school staff.
2) Social distancing and school building capacity requirements to the extent needed to meet 6 feet social distancing requirements
3) Remote learning options for students who request it.
We’ll have more details on remote learning options soon and will make sure the school community is aware via all our communication platforms.
Now that Governor Cooper has announced which Plan all public schools should use to reopen with necessary safety protocols, Craven County Schools will focus on options for Plan B in our district, including the addition of remote learning options.
Right now, changes/updates to NCDHHS safety protocols, feedback from stakeholders, and additional research on each possible Plan B option are being reviewed.
At today’s Board of Education Work Session, Dr. Doyle presented the Roadmap to Re-Open Learning Plan to the Board of Education with several options under Plan B for the Board to consider.

A decision will be made by our Board of Education at the Monthly Board Meeting on July 16th on the best plan for our district.
We truly understand everyone in the school community needs specific answers as soon as possible and we will provide new information to you as soon as it is available. We will be sending a poll out soon to our families to gather your feedback on your intent for the new school year. Thank you for your patience and understanding as our top priority continues to be the safety and health of all of our students and staff.
