Out of an abundance of caution, Wayne County Public Schools says Brogden Primary will be transitioned to Plan C, full remote instruction, for the next two weeks due to COVID-19 cases impacting the school. Since September 29, the school has had eight individuals, four of which the district learned of Tuesday, who have recently been on the school’s campus who have tested positive for COVID-19. Students and staff will remain in Plan C, full remote, until October 20.
“As has already occurred with other non WCPS schools in our county and region impacted by COVID-19 on their campuses, we are transitioning this particular school to full remote to allow time for the district to deep clean the building and for any staff or students who may have been potentially exposed to remain home to self monitor for symptoms,” states Dr. James Merrill, WCPS interim superintendent.
All recommended guidelines from the NC Department of Health and Human Services are being followed. Learn more about the district’s COVID-19 response protocols at: https://www.waynecountyschools.org/2020-2021SchoolReopeningUpdates.aspx
