We want our HCPS Family to be aware of the current work we’re doing to prepare students, staff, and families to Return to Learn under a variety of possible conditions. Our plans are guided by the governor and the N.C. Department of Public Instruction, the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, and local public health officials. All official district information on HCPS Return to Learn procedures, plans, updates, and supports will be published and linked on this website.
