MOORE COUNTY — Last Thursday, the Moore County Board of Education decided to give Lynchburg parents the option to either send their kids to public school for in person learning or keep them at home and participate in remote learning. (To read our full coverage of that meeting, click here.)

However, if you intend to teach your children at home, you’ll need to fill out the school system’s online application prior to July 28. Administrators also plan a remote learning orientation to help parents get acclimated to the at home system. Those orientation will be offered on three dates: Monday, August 3 at 4 p.m. as well as Tuesday, August 4 at 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. Each session will last about an hour and a half.

If after orientation, parents decide that they no longer want to teach their children at home, they will be allowed to change to the in person learning option. Student who initially choose the in person option will have the ability to change to remote learning for the remainder of the grading period.

“At the end of each grading period (nine weeks for LES or twelve weeks for MCHS), students will select to continue remote learning or return to traditional learning,” the school systems website states.
