HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — With concerns about the coronavirus still circling around the Commonwealth, public school students in Henry County are set to kick off virtual classes on Monday.
Even though Henry County Public Schools will start the school year with virtual classes on Monday, Aug. 10, the school district says it will move to an AABB schedule once students can return to the classroom.
In other words, students in Group A will attend school Monday and Tuesday then learn remotely Wednesday through Friday. Meanwhile, students in Group B will learn remotely Monday and Tuesday, attend school Wednesday and Thursday, and learn remotely on Friday, according to officials.
The school district says siblings will attend classes on the same day, regardless of the school they attend. In addition, families who opted for purely virtual learning will reportedly be given that option for the fall semester.
