The return to in-person learning continues Monday as students in grades 2, 3, and 6 will return to classrooms in Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools. Students in grades 4, 5, 7, and 8 will begin returning in cohorts the week of January 18, after the MLK Day holiday.

High school students will start returning in cohorts January 25. Some students are returning earlier for in-person testing.

Pre-K, kindergarten and first grade students returned to in-person learning earlier in the school year.

There will be a mix of remote and in-person learning, with no students in buildings on Wednesdays to allow for cleaning and planning for teachers.

Members of the media are invited to visit South Fork Elementary on Monday, January 11, at 9:30 a.m. to cover the first day back for students. Everyone should report to the office after arriving on campus and will be asked to follow all safety protocols including wearing a mask, screening, and social distancing. Interim Superintendent Tricia McManus will also be visiting the school at that time.

If you would like to visit South Fork, please contact Chris Runge at WS/FCS Marketing & Communications for a more precise schedule, information, and to coordinate coverage.
