Board of Education adds more in-person instruction days for all students

The Union County Board of Education met Monday, March 15 to discuss Senate Bill 220 (Session Law 2021-4). 

The Board of Education voted to increase in-person instruction for elementary, middle and high school students.

Beginning, Monday, April 12, middle and high schools will transition to Plan A, with in-person instruction five days a week.

In addition, elementary students will add one more day to the Plan A schedule and attend school in-person five days a week.

Under the new plan, schools will operate in person and virtually Monday – Friday.

The virtual academy option will continue to be made available through the student’s assigned school.

In the coming weeks, principals and administrators will follow up with parents to provide additional information about health and safety guidelines, school operations, etc.

Please note: Monday, April 12 is no longer a Remote Learning Day. All students on Plan A will report to school.
