Return to Learn - Reopening Plans 2020-21

Return to Learn 2020-21: Your Choices

Please explore our website to help you understand what this school year will look like. Our students will be returning either in a 100% remote option through our very own Online Catawba K-12 Virtual Learning Academy, or the state's A/B/C Plan, which we're currently operating under plan B - a mix of in-person and virtual learning for almost all of our students.

Please note: CCS Students were required to submit their Intent Form and register for Online Catawba by August 1. 

We urge you to visit your school(s)' website to learn about specific procedures regarding safety, sanitation, orientations, transportation, check-in procedures, and more. Please feel free to explore our website to learn more about how we are working to keep our staff and students safe and healthy.
