Wilmington City Schools seeking best, safest option for reopening

Wilmington News Journal |

Every classroom in the Wilmington school district will have a touchless hand sanitizer station as part of COVID-19 prevention efforts for the upcoming academic year.

In addition, every employee will be provided with a face shield, which Wilmington City Schools (WCS) Superintendent Mindy McCarty-Stewart thinks will be especially helpful when teachers work in close proximity to students who then will be able to see facial expressions including smiles — unlike face masks.

WCS will provide a virtual education option for parents to register K through 12 students who have specific needs and are unable to attend school in the green zone or in a hybrid format that combines remote and at-school learning.
