October 14-30, 2020 with students returning on November 2, 2020 Read more...

On Saturday, October 10, 2020 Stanly County Board of Education members voted to shift to remote instruction for all students in the district; October 14, 2020 through October 30, 2020 with students returning on November 2, 2020. Due to increased community spread of COVID-19 and despite the efforts undertaken by the school system thus far, we have a coordinated recommendation from the Stanly County Health Department and Stanly County Schools administrative team to shift to full remote operations.
 
There is a rise of the positivity rate of COVID-19 in Stanly County. Therefore, the Board of Education is compelled to make this decision due to depletion of critical resources because of the rise of COVID-19 within our community.

To provide continuity of education for all students in the most appropriate and accessible ways possible, remote learning and traditional instructional methods such as paper lessons will be sent home with students on October 13, 2020 with ongoing assignments posted in Canvas. No meals will be provided during this time.
 
The school district’s primary consideration is always to make the best decisions possible for the health and safety of all students, staff, and our community. We must all continue our efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus during this pandemic. We ask for your partnership in combating the spread of the COVID-19 virus by:
  • Implementing the 3 Ws
    Washing hands, Waiting 6’ apart, Wearing a face covering
  • Reporting any COVID-19 exposures and symptoms to our school nurses.
    Contact information is located on the SCS website
Please be assured that the entire Stanly County School district is working diligently to provide answers to your questions and concerns and to make this plan work to meet the educational needs of all students while taking the necessary precautions to remain safe and healthy.
 
It is imperative that we all abide by the guidelines of the healthcare professionals to come together and overcome this pandemic. Our best line of defense in defeating this virus is largely dependent on the diligence of the community to join us in our efforts to return to face-to-face instruction.
 
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work together forging a new path for education in Stanly County.
