New! Parent Help Guide

    Forsyth County Schools recovers instructional time lost due to school closures by utilizing asynchronous online learning using itslearning, the district's online learning management system. 2020-21 is the sixth year of the Online Learning Plan for School Closures.
    • Posted in the Planner by the start of a normal school day in itslearning.
    • Students should begin working on their lessons on the day missed when possible. Students expected to complete assignments on the day of the closure. Students unable to complete assignments (power outage, lack of access to technology) will be allowed to complete the work upon return to school.
    • Student attendance is not connected to the completion of work.
    Class Schedule:
    Elementary students will complete assignments for ELA, Math, Science/Social Studies, & Specials each day. Please note that elementary schools may have additional specials. Please refer to the individual school for details.
    Middle and high will follow their normal schedule for that day, and students will complete lessons for classes they would have attended that day (ie: On Monday, Tuesday and Friday a school may have a seven period day, while Wednesday and Thursday they may be a block day).

    Teacher Communication:

    Prior to school closings, teachers will communicate with parents and students how students can find assignments in itslearning and the mode of communication to use to contact teachers. Additionally, teachers will be available during normal school hours. Please refer to the individual school for hours.

    Extended Online Learning Information:

    In the event of an Extended School Closure, elementary will NOT follow an A or B schedule. Students will receive assignments for each class/subject area. Schools and classroom teachers will provide additional information on assignments students should complete. Any student needing connectivity at home should contact the school counselor.
