On Friday, July 17, Uwharrie Charter Academy announced its reopening plan for the 2020-2021 school year.
The school will move forward with Plan B that is a combination of in-person and remote learning. Plan B will see students in grades K-6 attend school on an A/B day schedule. Half of the students will attend school in-person on Mondays and Tuesdays, while the other half will report to school on Wednesdays and Thursdays. The school said Fridays would be a virtual learning day and a day to clean all school facilities. The school also mentioned that all students within the same household would be grouped together and go to school on the same days.
If parents of students in grades K-6 do not feel comfortable sending their child to school for in-person learning they do have the option to choose full virtual learning.
As for students in grades 7-12, they will attend school virtually Monday through Thursday with the option for in-person tutoring on Fridays. Tutoring will be by appointment for those students. If things improve by the end of the first grading period, then on September 10th the school will begin to phase in grades 7-12 coming back to campus for in-person learning.
If health trends do not improve or get worse then the school has the option to move to Plan C which is a fully remote learning.
School will begin on August 6th for students attending Uwharrie Charter Academy.
