We have had many questions about Governor Cooper's announcement allowing districts to have more flexibility for elementary students starting October 5. After careful consideration, Whiteville City Schools has made the following adjustments for Edgewood Elementary:
-We are still going to maintain 6 feet of social distancing in classrooms and buses. If we did not do this, any time a student or staff member had a COVID symptom or positive test, the whole class or bus would have to quarantine, which would be very disruptive for students and families.
-This continues to limit the number of students on campus, therefore we will continue with the following options:
Plan C (100% virtual for families that choose that option),
Plan B (on campus two days a week and virtual three days a week)
and Plan A (on campus four days a week and virtual on Wednesday) as space is available in classrooms.
The following changes will go into effect on Monday, October 5:
Bus Transportation will be offered (based on need and availability) for students on Plan A. (This must be approved on an individual basis by Dr. Smith or Ms. Hough.)
Third Grade: Plan B will no longer be offered. Families must choose Plan A or Plan C. (Third grade class sizes are low enough to make this possible with social distancing.)
Fourth & Fifth Grade: We will continue with Plans A, B, & C. There is limited availability for in-person spots for families that would like to switch plans before October 5.
Third, Fourth, & Fifth Grade: After October 5, families will not be able to switch back and forth between plans. If your family chooses Plan C, your child will remain on Plan C until the end of the semester- December 22, 2020.
If you completed the form online that was posted last week, you will hear from Dr. Smith or Ms. Hough on Thursday, October 1.
