CMS adds virtual option for fragile kids K-2nd grade

Sept. 29. The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Board of Education has approved a virtual instruction plan that allows medically fragile students in kindergarten, first and second grades to transfer to Charlotte-Mecklenburg Virtual Elementary.

Doctors must sign off based on medical need.

Once a child has enrolled in the virtual magnet, they will continue there for the remainder of this school year. Click here for more information on CMS Virtual Schools.

Enrollment window

The initial window for enrollment opens Oct. 4 and closes Oct. 10. Students accepted during this initial window will start their enrollment Nov. 1. Applications submitted and approved after the initial window will be enrolled on a rolling basis after Nov. 1.


“We have heard from parents of younger students who are medically fragile,” said Elyse Dashew, Board chair. “We are glad that CMS can offer students this expanded educational choice.”

The change stems from the volume of Delta variant COVID cases.

The board also approved a plan that allows Superintendent Earnest Winston to transition schools from in-person to remote learning in the event of severe weather, power failure or other emergencies, for a single school or multiple schools.
