Every Student Succeeds Where the Extraordinary is Ordinary


Reopening Schools 2020-2021

A Message From Superintendent Dr. Charles Foust
Dear NHCS Families,
As our community has navigated the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, your goals for your family and the goals of the school district have been the same - to provide a safe learning environment for our children and to create the best conditions to support their academic success. We've also shared the same concerns - protecting the health and safety of our staff and students and overcoming the barriers to learning created by the pandemic and remote learning.
It's with these factors in mind that New Hanover County Schools is transitioning to Plan A for grades pre-K through 5 on Tuesday, January 19, 2021. Middle and high school students will continue to attend under Plan B AA/BB schedule.  Families who would like to remain in or move to remote learning can participate in the 100% remote learning option.
As we bring our youngest learners back to schools five days a week, the district is committed to continuing to practice the 3W's - wait at a socially distanced location, wash hands frequently, and wear masks - with fidelity. We are ready with ample supplies of PPE, health checks, COVID case identification, and rigorous contact tracing. We will do everything possible to keep our staff and students safe, healthy, and successfully engaged in learning.
Superintendent Foust
