GREENSBORO, N.C. — Guilford County Schools will move to remote learning for all students for the week after Thanksgiving.

The school system released the following information on Wednesday afternoon:

In an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19 following the Thanksgiving holiday, GCS will return to remote learning for all students between Nov. 30 and Dec. 4. Most employees will work from home during that time.

Wednesday, Nov. 25, will continue to be a vacation day for students and 10-month employees such as teachers; other employees will work from home if possible. Thursday, Nov. 26, and Friday, Nov. 27, are district holidays for all staff and students. GCS calendars have been updated to reflect the change.

To ensure that no child goes hungry because of the building closure, School Nutrition Services will modify its grab-and-go meal plan. Extra meals will be provided on Tuesday, Nov. 24, between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at all schools and mobile meal locations.
