UNC Greensboro’s Moss Street Partnership School (MSPS) welcomed students for in-person learning last week.
“We are so excited to have the students back,” said Moss Street Principal Catina Chestnut. “Our teachers have been working overtime to prepare their classrooms and provide an engaging and safe environment for our students. Words can’t describe how much we have missed seeing their faces.”
The school, operated by UNCG in partnership with Rockingham County Schools, opened with safety protocols and procedures including:
- Daily temperature checks
- Deep cleaning of classrooms, common areas, and furniture
- Face coverings
- Social distancing
- Small group learning cohorts
- Breakfast and lunch served in classrooms
Bus transportation, breakfast and lunch, physical education, after school programs, and tutoring are provided for students. Students in Rockingham County are eligible to attend MSPS for free and can take advantage of the school’s STEAM curriculum – science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics – along with the new nature learning trail in the woods behind the school. MSPS students each receive iPads to facilitate their learning to ensure they have access to the latest technology.
