— Some students in Nash and Johnston counties return to in-person learning Monday for the first time since March.

Nash County Public Schools is bringing grades K-3 back to classrooms Monday. Kids will attend school every other week to allow for social distancing.

On Nov. 2, grades 4-5 are set to return. About one-third of elementary school students in Nash County will stay in all-remote learning.

Faculty and staff at Coopers Elementary School in Elm City were so excited to welcome students back that they posted a music video on Facebook. In the video, staff sing "We're All In This Together" from High School Musical to their students.

Students in Johnston County are also transitioning back to school on Monday.

Students in 1st and 2nd grades will have in-person learning five days a week under Plan A, while students in grades 6-12 will begin attending school under Plan B.

In Plan B, students are split into in two groups and attend school either Monday and Tuesday or Thursday and Friday.
