N.C. elementary schools may offer full in-person classes

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) β€” North Carolina delayed announcing statewide plans for reopening K-12 public schools. Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper said he expects to release updated guidance β€œin the coming weeks.”

Schools were instructed in June to draft three plans for resuming fall classes, which include in-person and remote learning.

Cooper on Wednesday said his top priority is to get kids back into classrooms. The decision to postpone a decision on how best to reopen classrooms comes as new coronavirus cases hit a single-day high at 1,843.

Public health officials are still working on a plan to protect college students as campuses reopen across the state.
