School board

to discuss high

schoolers' return

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools' Board of Education has called a special meeting for Thursday to discuss the return of high school students to in-school learning.

High school students are currently scheduled to return next week. Many of the state's largest school districts have paused their reopening plans because of the post-holiday surge in COVID-19 cases.

The meeting is set to begin at 5 p.m. inside the auditorium of the Education Building, 4801 Bethania Station Road.

The board already has a regularly scheduled meeting on Tuesday.
