BACK TO SCHOOL: 2021-2022 School Year Information

  • Early College High School: The first day of the 2021-22 School Year is August 10, 2021 for Early College High School

  • Traditional Schools: The first day of the 2021-22 School Year is August 23, 2021 for Traditional Schools.


  • All Brunswick County Schools will resume 100% Face to Face learning for the 2021-22 School Year.
    (This is 5 days of In-Person instruction per week)

  • There will not be a Remote Learning Option for the 2021-22 School Year.   A Virtual Learning Survey that gauged the interest in a Remote Learning Plan for the upcoming school year was available to Elementary, Middle, and High School Parents/Guardians in May while school was still in session.
    With only 2% of the school community showing interest in a 100% remote learning format, the decision was made to not offer it as an option for the 2021-22 school year unless there is an unforeseen circumstance that deems remote learning necessary. 

    *All Brunswick County Schools will resume 100% Face to Face learning 5 days a week for the 2021-22 school year.


  • If your child needs bus transportation for the 2021-22 School Year and did NOT ride a bus last year, please contact your child's school to register.  This would include 100% Remote/Virtual students and those who had someone else transport them other than BCS. 

  • If your child DID ride a bus last year, you do not need to register again.

  • Per CDC guidelines, face coverings must be worn on school buses at this time.
FACE COVERINGS: During the January 12, 2022 Emergency Meeting, Board Members approved a return to the Face Covering Required protocols at all Brunswick County Schools due to the impacts of the latest COVID-19 surge and overwhelming staff shortages, effective when students return to school on Tuesday, 1/18/22. 


  • At this time, there are no minimal social/physical distancing requirements though 3 feet physical distancing between students will be maintained when possible.
    All schools will continue to practice the additional cleaning protocols that were in place for the 2020-21 School Year.  This includes the new needlepoint bipolar ionization air filtration systems added last year at all locations and in all buses as well as the recommended health and safety protocols, additional custodial staff at every school, and other practices to ensure the safest learning environment possible.


  • BCS follows the guidelines/requirements from the North Carolina High School Athletics Association and will adjust accordingly.  

  • Student Athletes who are actively playing sports do not have to wear masks indoors.  

  • If you have any questions, please contact the Athletics Department at your child's school.
