Durham Public Schools will continue to monitor the impact of COVID-19 in our community and follow the guidance of local health authorities and the North Carolina Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services to mitigate spread and keep our students, staff and their families safe.
Understanding that conditions can shift rapidly, DPS will remain flexible to adjust to prevailing conditions and continue to enforce prevention measures and strategies to the extent possible and allowable under North Carolina law. All students, teachers, staff members and adult visitors must wear masks on buses and while inside school buildings during the regular school day.
