All students (Pre-K – 12) may attend school in-person, four days per week (Tuesday – Friday). Each Monday will continue as a remote learning day to allow for deep cleaning in our schools and to take other precautions that will help us continue in-person learning safely.
Elementary students will move to an extended school day beginning on Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Elementary Schools, including Martin Millennium Academy, will operate from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. Middle and High Schools will continue on their abbreviated schedule. (Middle Schools – 8:30 until 2:30 and High Schools – 7:30 until 1:30). Middle School students at Martin Millennium Academy will also attend school from 8:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
If your student is currently a virtual learner and would like to return to in-person learning on April 14, please notify your child’s school before April 1.
All students at each grade level will continue to have an option for remote learning for the remainder of this school year.
Plan A for middle and high schools requires a submission of a learning plan to the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services for review and collection COVID-19 data for the ABC Collaborative, a group of scientists and physicians working with schools to keep learning safe. This is to make sure safety protocols and conditions are closely monitored with additional students in school buildings.
Many of our staff members are scheduled to receive their second dose of the COVID vaccine on Monday, April 12, 2021. To ensure we have enough staff members to operate school safely as staff members recover from their second dose, Tuesday, April 13, 2021 will be a remote learning day for all students.
There will be no school on Friday, April 2, 2021 in observance of the Good Friday Holiday. Spring Break is Monday, April 5 – Friday, April 9, 2021. Monday, April 12, 2021 and Tuesday, April 13, 2021 will be remote learning days. Students will return to in-person learning on Wednesday, April 14, 2021 unless they are virtual learners.
Many thanks to all students, parents, and staff members for your continued support, patience, and understanding over the past year as we have worked to keep our ECPS family and our community as safe as possible.
