Governor Cooper announced in a press conference on Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 4:30 p.m. that North Carolina schools will close effective Monday, March 16, 2020, for two weeks. ECPPS has been anticipating this decision and has worked diligently to prepare for school closure as related to the coronavirus.
ECPPS has an Internal Crisis Response Team that has been working for the past two weeks to create a plan that addresses instruction during a school closure as well as many other needs that our students and staff may encounter during that time. With the heightened coronavirus threat for North Carolina, we increased our time together to stay on top of the latest developments and to ensure we are prepared for whatever may come our way.
Our plan is very detailed and addresses virtual learning, meal distribution for students, technology distribution, WiFi access, student attendance, employee work schedules and pay, re-entry, and other areas. We have developed a page on the district website where information/resources will be posted for students, staff, and the community.
Please continue to follow us at www.ecpps.k12.nc.us, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Channel 8. We will share information as soon as possible to keep families and staff informed.
