Board votes to phase in return to in-person instruction
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. The Virtual Academy online application can be found on the Return to Learn website www.alexander.k12.nc.us/rtl. The deadline for Virtual Academy applications is Friday, Oct. 16 by 3 PM.
