Bath County School Board approves 2020-21 ‘Return to School’ plan with mostly in-person classes

Back to School

BATH COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — On Tuesday night, the Bath County School Board approved a hybrid learning model as the “Return to School” plan for the 2020-2021 school year, deciding to have students go to school four days a week and learn virtually one day a week.

Bath County Public Schools announced on Wednesday, Aug. 5 that schools will open on Aug. 26, with students attending classes at school Monday through Thursday and learning remotely on Friday.

However, officials say parents are allowed to request 100-percent online learning for their child when they register for the school year. If you have additional questions, contact your child’s school principal.

According to the school district, online registration for the 2020-2021 school year is already underway, and parents are asked to register as soon as possible. Letters with SNAPCODES for each student were set to be mailed Wednesday, officials say, but parents may also contact a school secretary.

For more information on the school district’s plans for health, safety, transportation, nutrition, technology, etc. for the upcoming school year, visit the Bath County Public Schools’ website.
