Here’s what’s happening now:

Wake County Public Schools will return to in-person instruction for those not in Virtual Academy, the school board voted on Tuesday night.

The vote came hours after Governor Roy Cooper’s urging to re-open school campuses in a Tuesday public briefing (NC Health News has links to mentioned studies), but coincided with when the district was scheduled to re-evaluate re-opening campuses.

The public school system’s campuses were temporarily closed since the end-of-the-year holidays.

Beginning the week of Feb. 15, those who opted for in-person school will return:
  • Pre-K through third grade: Daily in-person instruction
  • Grades 4 and 5: Three-week rotations
  • Middle and High School: Three-week rotations
  • Special Education Regional Programs, K-12: Daily in-person instruction”
It’s the first time since March 2020 that high school students will return to campus. WRAL has more of the discussion.
