Parent's Voice Survey
Parents, we need your voice on the decision to choose Remote Learning vs Face to Face Learning for each of your children. Please complete the Parent's Voice Survey located on the WCS website, Washington County Schools NC on Facebook, and WashingtonCoSchools on Twitter. We need to know your preferred choice to share with the Board of Education as they make the difficult decision on when to return students to our school buildings based on advice from MTW Health Department and following State and CDC Guidance. Your immediate attention to this very important matter needs to be completed at this time.
