GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) - Martin County Schools announced during a board meeting Monday night that schools will transition to Plan C beginning Jan. 11.

The transition to virtual/distance learning will span two weeks, and was decided based on the impacts of COVID-19 following the holidays. The board says it will monitor the pandemic and extend the virtual/remote classes beyond two weeks if necessary.

In-person students who want to transition out before next week will be allowed to without any attendance penalty. The board says teachers of in-person learning students will begin to contact families, but parents should “not expect the same daily schedule during the time of transition and/or during the time students are at home.”

Families, please review the following information from tonight’s school board meeting, as shared by Dr. David Fonseca,...

Any family who needs repairs or a new laptop, tablet or other electronic is asked to do so prior to Jan. 11. Families in need of “hot spots” or “devices” are asked to contact their home school for more information.

MCS teachers and staff will continue to report to their assigned school, office or job on a regular schedule while students work under Plan C. Parents and students who choose to continue to attend Pre-K will be allowed to do so, and teachers will contact families to confirm attendance and transportation options.

Martin County Schools will continue to follow the state’s High School Athletic Association for continued participation in athletics during this period. Drivers education classes will also continue. Students will be contacted by their instructor with additional information.
