Update September 24: The county board of education met in a special meeting and received a recommendation from Dr. Rob Jackson to open the elementary schools to full-time in-classroom learning starting October 19, 2020.
On September 17, 2020 NC Governor Roy Cooper amended his Coronavirus executive orders to allow elementary schools in NC to re-open to 100% in-person classes on October 5, 2020, and that his staff is still considering primary schools, middle schools, and high schools as they receive updated information from experts.
The governor cited the improving Coronavirus numbers and the likelihood of elementary school aged children becoming infected being low. The governor also said that individual school districts can remain under Plan B or C for elementary schools if they choose, and if a district chooses to re-open fully, parents can still choose virtual instruction.
So, the debate here is, should the Carteret County elementary schools be opened fully, or stay under the current Plan B or C? If the Carteret County schools do open elementary schools fully, will you as a parent or guardian allow your student to return to 100% in-person instruction, or continue to do a hybrid of in-person versus 100% virtual?
Why or why not?
