  • Our Transition to Plan B

    At the state level and here at Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools, we are working hard on a transition to in-person learning. On September 17, our COVID-19 Committee was presented with a proposed, phased re-entry plan beginning October 26 that carefully builds to include all grades by the start of second semester.

    The proposed re-entry plan is a hybrid of in-person and continued remote learning. In the plan, students would not attend school every day and schedules would be based on grade and school. This hybrid model enables us to maintain 50% capacity in our schools for safety and social distancing.

    The proposed re-entry plan can be found as part of the committee presentation and can be downloaded from this page. If you are interested in viewing the video from the September 17 Covid Committee meeting, visit https://livestream.com/cable2tv/events/8109675

  • Mobile Classrooms / WiFi Hotspots

    Mobile hotspot icon For students who do not have reliable access to the internet, WS/FCS is using school buses to bring the internet to them. We currently have a number of mobile hotspot locations where buses equipped with WiFi will enable children to connect to participate in virtual learning.

    WiFi extends up to 100 yards on each side of the buses. At present, plans are for Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools to deploy a total of 20 buses with WiFi connectivity to areas identified as having a high number of students needing connectivity support.

    Current WiFi Hotspot locations:

    • Wynnfield Court Apartments Kernersville
    • Woodlawn Apts on Weatherwood Ct (Upper and Lower) 2 buses
    • Birchwood Apts on Weatherwood Ct

  • Meal Assistance Update

    Meal plan icon The U.S. Department of Agriculture has announced that it will continue its free student meal program until further notice. This means any Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools student can receive free meals—breakfast and lunch—from designated meal pick-up locations.

    As a reminder, student Take-Home meals are served Mondays and Thursdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. from 39 school locations as well as from more than 130 mobile meal stops. 

    Beginning Thursday, September 3, WS/FCS is adding a late afternoon pick-up time from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at eight of our elementary school locations. Only these 8 locations will add the late afternoon pick-up.  All other school locations and mobile delivery sites will continue to serve from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. 

    Parents and guardians can pick up meals without students being present and will not be required to provide any additional student information at this time.

    Late afternoon pick up locations:

    • Gibson Elementary
    • Griffith Elementary
    • Ibraham Elementary
    • Kernersville Elementary
    • Smith Farm Elementary

WS/FCS Equity Statement

  • Educational equity goes beyond basic principles of equality.

    A commitment to educational equity involves the removal of institutional barriers so that all students, regardless of their race, socio-economic class, gender, sexual orientation, disability, or ethnic background, can benefit from all aspects of the learning environment.

    A commitment to equity in education involves raising achievement for all students, while also narrowing the gaps, with the goal to eliminate the gaps, and eliminating the racial and cultural disproportionalities that exist between the lowest and highest performing student groups in varying achievement areas within the Winston-Salem/Forsyth County school system.
