HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — During Thursday evening’s meeting, Henry County school officials decided to allow students to return to the classroom — at least partially — by mid-October.
Henry County Public Schools kicked off the new school year on Aug. 10 in a virtual manner until it was safe for students to return to the classroom.
However, on Thursday, Sept. 24, the Henry County School Board voted to have students return to in-person learning with a hybrid “AA/BB” set-up starting Oct. 12.
According to the school district’s website, students in group A will attend in-person classes on Monday and Tuesday and learn virtually Wednesday through Friday. Meanwhile, students in group B will reportedly learn virtually Monday, Tuesday, and Friday, and attend in-person classes on Wednesday and Thursday.
School officials say masks will be mandatory.
