FORSYTH COUNTY, N.C. — Middle and high school students will soon be able to spend four days a week in the classroom, according to Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools.
Beginning Monday, all students that want to learn in person will have that option each weekday except for Wednesday. Wednesday will continue to be a remote learning day for all.
Elementary schools in Forsyth County have already rolled out this plan.
“In-person learning is what’s best for most students. If they want to learn in-person four days a week, now they can,” said WS/FCS Superintendent Tricia McManus.
With this change, WS/FCS is no longer offering a middle ground option. Students must either return to full in-person learning or remain entirely in remote learning.
The district says about 62% of students will be back for in-person instruction.
Schools will continue to follow all public health requirements.
