MORGANTON, N.C. (WBTV) - Burke County Schools will be moving to fully remote learning after the holiday break due to COVID-19.
All schools will go to 100 percent remote learning after the holiday break until Jan. 25.
Officials say the district-wide move back to remote learning is because of increasing COVID-19 numbers and to put a buffer period between possible holiday gatherings and in-person learning.
The Burke County School Board made the decision Monday night.
This comes after three schools in the district announced a move to Plan C in one week, the first two being Icard and Hildebran elementary schools. The most recent was North Liberty School.
