Announcements March 16-20, 2020

As I am sure you are aware, the governor of North Carolina has announced that there will be no school for students statewide beginning immediately for the next two weeks in response to the growing public health crisis facing our state.  Rutherford County Schools is making plans to accommodate for the academic and other support needs of students during this time away from school.  You should have received an announcement from Rutherford County Schools superintendent Dr. David Sutton regarding academic assignments and other resources offered to students across the district during this time. 

As a school that follows a flex calendar, Forest City Dunbar had already scheduled to be out of school for intersession break from Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, March 27.  During intersession breaks, there are no regular school academic assignments or expectations for student attendance.  For this reason, Forest City – Dunbar will not be making any academic assignments or deploying student iPads during the next two weeks out of school.  However, the meal services and counseling support mentioned by Dr. Sutton will be offered over the next two weeks to Forest City – Dunbar students.

Please be aware that there will be NO Young Scholars intersession program during the week of March 23-27 as originally planned.

The school office will be open to receive phone calls during this time out if you have any questions or needs we can support you with.  Feel free to call the school at (828)245-4978 or email Principal Brad Richardson at
