Graham County Schools will reopen on a “normal” schedule with 5 full days per week of face-to-face onsite instruction for all students. We have worked hard to provide safe and exciting learning environments both within the classrooms and outside on all campuses.


Graham County Schools will follow all local, state and federal sanitation guidelines in effect at the time of reopening from the CDC, NCDHHS, NCDPI and the local Health Department. We will provide intensive provisions for cleaning such as disinfecting of high touch surface areas more often and will continue enhanced daily cleaning of classrooms which includes cleaning desks/tables, chairs, emptying trash cleaning restrooms, vacuuming and cleaning floors. We will continue to offer hand sanitizing stations, water bottle filling stations and will change air filters regularly.


Transportation vehicles will be cleaned and sanitized regularly to ensure that all high touch areas are disinfected adequately. We will follow all local, state and federal guidelines in effect at the time regarding passenger transport.
