NCVirtual’s teachers and students have not been exempt from the pandemic. Both students and teachers have missed school days due to COVID-19, and our leadership recognizes that stress levels are high. We want to encourage our teachers and our students to step away from the computer and spend some time doing what rejuvenates them. 

To help accomplish this, Friday, November 12, 2021, will be a Wellness Day for NCVirtual teachers and students. It is our hope that this calendar adjustment will allow our teachers and students time to focus on the things that will improve their mental and physical health. Here’s how we are going to accomplish this:

  • Teachers will adjust pacing so that no assignments are assigned or due on Nov. 11th (Veteran’s Day) or 12th.  
  • Teachers will not be required to log in, grade, or respond to emails on Nov. 11th or 12th. As always, our courses will remain open, so students who wish to work on those days will be able to do so.  

We hope that students can use those time to focus on improving their mental and physical health. Students will see a similar announcement in their courses and receive additional guidance from their NCVirtual teachers.
