On Tuesday for the first time since mid-December, Cabarrus County Schools will begin bringing students and teachers back to the classroom for in-person learning at least two days a week and virtual learning for three days as part of Plan B.
The school board made the decision last week despite plenty of opposition from teachers and parents.
“I think it’s important when we’re choosing which plan to be in that we follow the data,“ Meredith Newman, a second grade Cabarrus County teacher said.
Right now, the data shows that COVID-19 cases across the county are up with a higher positivity rate than compared to back in December when the board chose to return to all-virtual learning to be safe.
The Cabarrus Health Alliance recommended the district stick to virtual learning at least until the numbers decrease.
The school board chose not to take that recommendation. Some board members argued the coronavirus risk at school is minimal. #WakeUpCLT #COVID19
