Important Schedule Update

Good morning SWMS Family!

In an effort to clear up some confusion with our schedule and timelines, we have made a slight adjustment to our schedule. We are incorporating a TRANSITION SCHEDULE to help streamline our transition to a schedule which incorporates 5 classes per day. Please see the district information and Upcoming Dates below:

UPDATED DISTRICT MESSAGE: 

Jan. 12, 2021 -- In-person instruction for middle and high school students is delayed for at least three weeks, the Guilford County Board of Education voted Tuesday. The board also requested to hear a report regarding the availability of testing and completed and scheduled vaccinations in Guilford County before making a decision regarding reentry.

In the meantime, the district is working to open additional learning hubs to support high school students who are at-risk of not graduating. These hubs would be located at all 15 traditional high schools and would have flexible hours based on students’ needs.

Previously, both middle and high school students were scheduled to return later this month, with students receiving in-person instruction two days a week and remote instruction three days a week. Those students will now continue remote instruction, as they have since August, with the exception of certain students with disabilities who returned in November.
