NCPTA holding virtual town hall Thursday night

The NCPTA will hold a virtual town hall on Thursday night.

From 6 to 7 p.m., the NCPTA, in partnership with North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services (NCDHHS), will host a online town hall.

The purpose of the town hall is to provide a forum for North Carolina families to hear important updates and information about COVID-19 and state schools reopening from health care professionals. There will also be a Q&A session. A sign language interpreter will be provided.

On the panel will be doctors from Duke University Medical Center and UNC Health and advisors from the NCDHHS.

These virtual town halls will allow North Carolina families to hear pertinent information related to COVID-19 numbers in our state, safety precautions needed to support successful school reopenings, and more.

Many districts in the ABC11 viewing area have opted for virtual learning for the first few weeks of the school year. On Wednesday, Johnston County Schools and Harnett County Schools each made respective decisions. Tuesday, Cumberland County Schools adopted Plan C, going online-only, for the first six weeks of the school year.
