JCPS transitions to Plan B for all students

The Johnston County Board of Education voted to return all Pre-K and EC-Self Contained students to Plan B, four days per week, beginning on Tuesday, Jan. 19. These students will participate in face-to-face instruction on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, with Wednesday serving as a remote learning day.

All other students in grades K-12 will remain on Plan C until Monday, Feb. 1. At that time students in grades 6-12 will resume Plan B. K-5 students will return to school on Plan B. K-5 students were previously on Plan A prior to Dec. 14 when all students moved to Plan C.

Plan B for our district’s K-12 students follows a two cohort model. Each cohort attends face-to-face instruction two days per week. Students will follow an AA/BB day schedule, attending face-to-face instruction on either Monday and Tuesday, or Thursday and Friday.

All of our classrooms will follow guidance from the Strong Schools NC Public Health Toolkit. Students remain required to wear a mask during face-to-face instruction, and six feet of social distancing will be maintained to the extent possible.

If a student opted for the Virtual Program for the spring semester they will remain virtual.

Our middle and high school sites will remain open for curbside meal service Monday through Friday from 11:30 AM to 12:45 PM. Any student in Johnston County ages 18 or younger can visit any of our sites at no cost. Students will have the opportunity to receive a free meal from the school they attend while participating in face-to-face instruction.

Students requiring transportation will have information shared with them prior to their return to school.

If your student has a specific technology need, please contact your child’s’ school.
