OCS Plan B Reopening Information
On Tuesday, July 14, Governor Roy Cooper announced that schools across North Carolina would reopen under Plan B on August 17. On Thursday, July 16, the Onslow County Board of Education unanimously approved Plan B, Option 1 as the way we will begin the upcoming school year.
The approved local plan for implementing Plan B will have students alternate in-person days within each week of school. Under this option, all students, PK-12, will be assigned a cohort (A or B) which will attend school in-person two days each week and learn remotely three days each week, on an alternating basis. On Monday and Tuesday, Cohort A will meet in-person, while Cohort B participates in remote learning. On Thursday and Friday, Cohort B will meet in-person, while Cohort A does remote learning. All students will participate in remote instruction on Wednesdays to allow time for cleaning, tutoring, and planning.
For families who may be uncomfortable sending their children back to school for in-person instruction, OCS is now offering a fully virtual option through Onslow Virtual School. Registration for OVS is open through Wednesday, July 22. You can learn more about OVS here: Onslow Virtual School.
