May 16 to become Optional Teacher Workday for Asheboro City Schools

In an effort to support our teachers and ensure quality instruction for our students, Asheboro City Schools will close for students on May 16, 2018. This will be an optional teacher workday to allow those who wish to participate in the event in Raleigh the flexibility to do so. While we appreciate the efforts over the past few years by the general assembly to support public education, we recognize there is still much work to be done on behalf of our staff and students.

As with all optional teacher workdays, we anticipate some staff will be in their classroom preparing lessons, or participating in online professional development. Additionally, we are developing plans to have our cafeterias open for lunch, along with plans to provide lunches in the community so students will continue to have a nutritious meal available. Athletic events scheduled for May 16th will continue as originally planned.

Due to the number of instructional hours built into our school calendar, students will not be required to make up the student day.
