  • The Alexander County Board of Education members voted to allow elementary students to return to in-person instruction in phases beginning with PreK – 2nd-grade students returning Oct. 26 to a four-day per week in-person schedule. Wednesdays will continue to be a remote day for students and allow for deep cleaning in the schools. 

    ​The second phase will include third – 5th grades and will be determined by the board at the next school board meeting. The anticipated date to bring third – 5th-grade students back to school is Nov. 16.

  • Below is important information regarding Alexander County Schools' response to Governor Cooper’s recent announcement regarding the ability to open schools under the Plan A option of in-person instruction for all PreK through 5th-grade students effective October 5. As promised, we have been thoughtful and intentional with our plans thus far and will continue to be as we draft these new plans.
    Elementary students will not return to school at full capacity on Monday (October 5). The governor's order stated that schools could start back on October 5 or when school districts are fully ready - we are not there yet. A staff survey was completed, and the results can be found on our district website and social media sites. The parent survey is currently being conducted and is available to complete through Monday, October 5, at 9 AM.

    Data will be analyzed and shared next week. Dr. Hefner and health department officials will meet to discuss the data and COVID-19 metrics within the county as they prepare a recommendation for the board of education which will be presented at the meeting on Tuesday, October 13. The earliest anticipated possible start date for elementary students at full capacity would be October 19. We encourage you to tune in to the board of education meeting on our YouTube channel. A link will be posted on our district website and social media after 3 PM on October 13. The school board meeting begins at 6 PM.

    Thank you for your continued support and patience, as this decision is made. As always, our students' and staff's safety and well-being will be at the forefront of this decision.

  • Message from the Superintendent

    Alexander County Schools is committed to educating and empowering every student to become a responsible and productive citizen. We believe it is our responsibility to provide a safe and healthy environment for students to learn. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted our community and our school system; however, it has not changed our commitment to our students. Through the end of the 2019-2020 school year, we provided opportunities for students to continue learning remotely and have access to nutritious meals while doing our part to limit the spread of COVID-19.  

    We are in the planning phase of our Return to Learn for the 2020-2021 school year. This new, temporary website will serve as our primary location for the most up-to-date information about re-opening schools.  Please continue to check our district site for on-going information, directories, and other useful information.

    Let’s get ready to Return to Learn!
