COVID-19 Update 3 - Schools Closed Two Weeks Starting March 16th
Posted on 03/14/2020

SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED TWO WEEKS STARTING MARCH 16. 

 

MONDAY IS NOT* A VIRTUAL DAY. WE ARE CLOSED FOR STAFF AND STUDENTS.

Under the direction of Governor Roy Cooper in conjunction with the Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Public Instruction, and State Board of Education, Transylvania County Schools and all school systems in North Carolina will be closed for at least two weeks beginning Monday, March 16, 2020.

*NOTE: We do not have any further information about Virtual Days at this time. Please wait for additional updates in the days ahead.

Also, on Monday our school buildings will be accessible for parents or guardians to retrieve any personal items belonging to students, such as medications, clothing, Chromebooks, or anything left at school. We know this announcement was unexpected, and we are happy to work with families to do whatever is necessary. 

Visit this page for a live stream with archive of updates from the Governor and public health & safety officials: ncdps.gov/storm-update.

A statewide working group has been established to tackle issues of feeding children, offering safe child care, and any other issues affecting working families. Special consideration is being made for parents and guardians who work in health care, in recognition of the central role they will play in helping our communities weather this current situation.

More details will be forthcoming as they become available. We are here with you—our students, staff, families, and community of Transylvania County. Thank you for your consistent cooperation, and for letting us know how we can support you in any way.

Learn more at tcsnc.org/health, where we will share updates and information about health, continuity of learning, and anything related to this change in our calendar.
