DARE COUNTY, N.C. — Children are back in classrooms in Dare County.

Elementary school students are going for in-person instruction four days a week, with Friday being a virtual learning day.

Middle school and high school students will have in-person classes two days a week.

The return to in-person learning began on Monday, March 1.

Dare County Schools tried to bring students back a couple of days a week in October but by the second week, hundreds of students and staff members were in quarantine for COVID-19 exposure.

Virtual learning remains an option for all students K-12 for the remainder of the school year.
