Update on Return to In-Person

At last night's Board meeting, our BOD voted to move to Plan A for all K-5 students upon the encouragement of Governor Cooper to get students back in school. Middle School will remain on Plan B until further guidance from government officials. The movement of students in K-5 will take place on Monday, March 1. We will remain on a hybrid schedule in all grades for the next 2 weeks, beginning with A week on Tuesday, February 16. The following week will be B week.


In Person is Monday - Thursday. Friday all classes are held remotely for deep cleaning of campus.

Plan B, Hybrid return will begin for K-8 starting Tuesday, February 16th.
  • This will be an A Week

K-5 will move to Plan A Monday, March 1st.

  • K-5 Students who are currently hybrid will now attend both weeks. This is only for students who were already attending in-person classes. You may not choose to opt-in at this time. New opt-ins for on campus instruction will begin March 29.  

  • Families still have the option to remain remote.

  • If your family is not comfortable with Plan A, (students attending BOTH A and B weeks) and you are currently attending Hybrid Instruction you may complete the RETURN TO REMOTE FORM to let us know that you will be continue instruction remotely.

Greenlight Symptom Reporting Software
As we begin Plan B and transition to Plan A we are changing the way we screen students in morning carpool. We will begin using the Greenlight Symptom Reporting Software so we can better track health trends during this time. Morning check-ins using this website will be mandatory. If a family has not filled out their Greenlight Symptom Survey, they will be asked to move out of carpool line and rejoin once they have filled out the survey. Temperatures will still be taken upon arrival as an additional precaution.

The instructions below are detailed, but simple and include screen shots of the onboarding process. Each family will receive a text at 7am each morning to remind them to report any symptoms. A symptom survey must be filled out for each student arriving at school.




  • Your unique activation code for students is: JollyLunch83

  • If you have issues or questions about the account creation or need assistance, please contact help@greenlightready.com - your child's teacher or office administration will not be able to assist with this process.

  • Every morning families arriving at school must log into the app at https://app.greenlightready.com/ or use the link sent to them by text to complete a symptom survey.

  • When the families arrive at school, they will be required to show their green checkmark from the application for each child they are bringing.

  • It is not mandatory for remote students to complete this information each day, but we do encourage it so we can support all of our families during the pandemic.
