This is a reminder for parents of PreK through second-grade students that we are excited to have all of your children back in our buildings beginning on Monday. The new schedule will be as follows: Students in grades PreK through 2 will attend school in person on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Wednesdays will continue to be remote learning day for all students in the school system. As we make this transition, I encourage everyone to be diligent with the 3 Ws… Wear your mask, Wait 6 feet apart, and Wash your hands frequently. Our commitment to these protocols in school and out in the community will play a role in the success of this new schedule. Please do your part to stay well! #StopTheSpread
The Alexander County School System is in the process of reviewing its website to ensure compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. If you have questions or concerns regarding the accessibility of the website or if you are unable to access a page or document on the website, you may contact the Communications Department via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 828-632-7001.
Parents...please plan to use multiple communication sources for weather-related information over the next few days. The school system will continue to use the automated call system to alert parents of school delays, dismissals, and cancellations. In the event you do not receive a call, you should also check the district website, district social media, WACB AM 860 radio, or Breaking News with the Taylorsville Times.
The likelihood that all surrounding school systems will also be making calls during the same timeframe is extremely high. This could overload phone lines and cell towers.
Thank you for your cooperation.
