Keeping U Safe overview image

    On July 14, Governor Roy Cooper announced that all students would return to school for the 2020-2021 school year with options for in-person and remote learning. At a special called Board of Education meeting on July 14, Superintendent Dr. Houlihan shared an executive summary of Keeping U Safe: 2020-2021 guidance for instruction, health and safety. In this plan, UCPS outlines information for hybrid of face-to-face and online learning plans. 

    As information is released about COVID-19, and federal and state guidelines are updated, UCPS will continue to make adjustments to its plan and operations. We will continue to be flexible and nimble as we navigate this unprecedented time in our school system. We commit to provide our employees, parents, students and community with accurate information and timely information.

    All official information about reopening schools will be posted here.
