OCS Return to Learn 2020-2021

  • This guide presents the protocols and procedures developed to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus that causes COVID-19. All information and plans in this document are based on guidance from the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), Onslow County Health Department, and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI).

    In all our decisions, Onslow County Schools prioritizes the health, safety and well-being of our students, staff, and school community. This document is subject to updates. If and when the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic change, this guidance may also change. To combat the spread of this virus as a community, the expectation is that all employees, students, and families comply with the procedures, protocols and requirements outlined in this document.


    This information is subject to change.

    Please understand that knowledge about the COVID-19 virus and the best practices to respond to the pandemic continue to evolve. The guidance, plans, and policies related to returning to school in OCS will also evolve. This guide is intended to be a living document and will be updated as information changes. Families will be notified of any changes through our district communication system. Please ensure your child’s school has the most current contact information on file, including any home and cell phone numbers and an email address which is checked regularly. Be sure to notify your child’s school should any contact information change throughout the school year.
