Wellness Day Set for Bladen County Schools

Bladen County Schools will observe a “Wellness Day” on Friday, November 12, 2021.  This will be a non-instructional day for students and staff will not be required to report to work.  The purpose of this day is for students and staff to engage in the process of reflective practice by considering what has worked well so far this school year, what can be done differently, and how we can have a strong finish to the first semester.  Students and staff are encouraged to engage in an activity related to their physical and mental wellness.  Extracurricular activities will continue as scheduled. 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant additional stress on students, staff, and families over the past 19 months.  Even in these challenging times, our students have demonstrated resiliency and our staff have demonstrated their unwavering dedication and commitment to educating and supporting our students.  We are appreciative of our students, staff, and families for your patience and understanding as we have navigated these unprecedented times together.  We look forward to seeing the positive benefits of this day for everyone.
