DANVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — On Thursday night, the Danville School Board approved its reopening plan for the upcoming fall semester.
The plan — which was approved on Thursday, Aug. 6 — says all students will start the school year online, except for students in the preschool program. Preschool students will begin the year attending Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
Beginning Sept. 15, the superintendent and the school board will re-evaluate and decide whether students who selected the Face-to-Face Program will start attending school through a phased opening at a later date.
The plan is scalable, meaning that the number of days students attend in-person classes will coincide with coronavirus data trends.
Classrooms have been rearranged to accommodate social distancing on days when classes are in person. As students and staff enter the school, their temperature will be taken. Failure to wear a mask will be treated as a dress code violation. Students must also wear masks on the bus.
