HILLSBOROUGH, N.C. — Most students in the Orange County School District won't be back in the classroom until January, according to a decision made by the board of education on Tuesday night.

Exceptional children (EC) and pre-k students will return to classrooms in the start of the second quarter, or starting on Oct. 27.

Small groups of students in all other grades will return to a hybrid learning model in January 2021, according to the board. OCS students would attend school online and in-person when they return, according to the school.

Orange County school staff will be allowed to bring their school-aged children to work as long as "they adhere to safety protocols with fidelity and are not a disruption that would keep parents from performing their duties," according to a release from the district.
