Mr. Carroll said he wants to keep the schedule as simple as possible for staff, students and parents. He also said the safety of staff and students continues to be important.

Board member Lyn Andrews asked Dr. Bracy if he had been in communication with principals about Plan A. Dr. Bracy said he would be meeting with principals on Tuesday to discuss the plan.

Under the adopted plan, virtual instruction continues to be an option. .

Under Plan A, students and staff will see some changes to safety protocols. Wellness checks and mask-wearing will continue to be required safety measures. Six feet spacing is no longer required in classrooms. On buses, the one student per seat limit has been lifted. JCPS will still be required to do contact tracing on any individual who was within 6 feet of a COVID infected person for a total of 15 minutes or more. They must be reported to the Johnston County Health Department and quarantine for 10 days.

Parents will be contacted by Wednesday, March 24 by their school with specific instructions and additional information.
