North Carolina families with school-age kids will get to hear important COVID-19 updates and ask questions in a state-led virtual town hall meeting Wednesday and Thursday.
Both meetings will occur from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday's event is in Spanish and Thursday's in English. Sign Language interpreters will be present at both.
The events are hosted by the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services and the NCPTA. Health leaders will share pertinent information related to COVID-19 numbers, focusing on what needs to happen before schools can reopen for in-classroom learning.
The first day of school is Aug. 17. Many school districts, including Wake County, have opted to operate in Plan C, all remote learning, for the first weeks of school at least as coronavirus cases continue to rise in the state.
Before the meeting, parents can submit their questions via an online form. The questions may be answered in a Q&A session after the discussion.
