Winter Break Dates

From buncombeschools.org:

Due to an increase in community spread of COVID-19 and an expected further increase after winter break, the BCS Board of Education voted to modify Return To Learn plans.

January 4, 2021, will now be a designated teacher workday with no school for students that day. This will allow time for semester transition and ensure teachers are fully prepared for quality remote instruction.

January 5 through January 15 will be synchronous remote learning days for all students, K-12. There will be scheduled virtual instruction throughout the day. Students are expected to follow a full day schedule (times vary slightly between schools). Teachers will be in touch regarding scheduling prior to January 5th. During this time period, Wednesdays will remain asynchronous/independent learning days.

It is the intent of the school board to return to Plan B on Tuesday, January 19 with Group A students reporting to school on that day. Wednesdays will remain asynchronous learning days for all students. Group B students will report Thursday (1/21) and Friday (1/22). January 18 is the Martin Luther King Jr. holiday, and there will be no school that day.
