Brunswick County Schools facilities will be closed to students for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year, per order of Governor Roy Cooper, due to the impacts of the Coronavirus/COVID19.
So, what does that mean for the BCS community? 
  • Remote learning continues.  Our schools and educators will continue to offer educational resources and activities for all students to take part in at home for focus and engagement as the schools have since having to close the building doors in March.
  • We strongly encourage all students and parents to stay in a remote learning routine with their teachers while BCS works with state and federal officials on the next steps for the district.
  • The State Board of Education has given guidance on grading for the 2019-2020 school year.  Elementary School students will receive no final grades. Teachers will provide year-end feedback to students.  Middle School students will receive a pass or withdrawal for each course.  A withdrawal is for students who were not passing the course as of March 13 but does not equate to a failing grade.  High School students in grades 9-11 will have the option of getting the numerical grades they had as of March 13 or can get a pass or withdrawal.  The withdrawal does not count as a failing grade but the student will not get a course credit.  Numerical grades will be factored into their GPA, a pass or withdrawal will not.  More information will be available soon.

School buildings may be closed but administrators and educators are dedicated to adapting to the challenges the world is going through at this time so that our students get the education they all deserve. We will grow through this era, together!

More updates will be coming to you as we receive additional guidance from the NC Department of Public Instruction and other state and federal agencies working with school systems across the state. We truly appreciate your support of Brunswick County Schools.

MATTHEW’S MINISTRY BACKPACK PROGRAM:

Matthew’s Ministry, the organization that distributes food for children at schools on Fridays for the weekend, has 3 pickup days planned this week for students who are a part of the Backpack Program.  “Bags of food will be available at these locations for families to drive up and pick up their children’s food .
We are asking families to pick one site (each week) that works best for their schedule and location. A bag of food will be given for each child in the family.” -Matthew’s Ministry
