Hybrid or Fully Remote?

  • Barring significant changes in public health metrics, Lenoir County Public Schools will offer students and their families three options for learning during the 2020-2021 school year.

    The Hybrid Option, or Plan B, blends two days of face-to-face learning at school with three days of remote learning. Specifics about the hybrid plan -- including typical schedules, transportation protocals and santitation procedures -- are detailed in this section and are summarized in the graphic below. 

    A second option for face-to-face learning, called Plan B+, allows students to physically go to school four days a week at those schools that can safely accommodate an increased number of students on campus. This option is scheduled to begin Jan. 11.

    Students also have the option of learning from home five days a week under the LCPS At Home Fully Remote Learning Option. Except for some changes in the daily schedules, the Fully Remote Option is very similar to the instructional model with which LCPS opened the school year. Students enrolled in the Fully Remote Option must commit to it for a full nine-week grading period, which means they will continue with remote learning at least until the end of the first semester. Students can move from the Hybrid Option to the Fully Remote Option at any time.
