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. 2019-20 is the sixth year of the Online Learning Plan for School Closures.
    • Teachers will post all assignments by 9 am in itslearning.
    • Students should begin working on their lessons on the day missed when possible. Student work is due three school days upon returning to school.

    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 have digital office hours on the days that school is closed.

    • Middle and High: 10-11 am and 1-2 pm


    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.
