LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Lynchburg City Schools’ Return to Learn team continues to plan for more days of in-person instruction for students, with their next steps involving sixth graders, according to Monday’s announcement.

The school district says hybrid students in sixth grade will start four days a week of in-person learning on May 11. This in-person learning will take place on Tuesdays through Fridays, with Mondays still serving as remote learning days for all students.

Teachers are set to reach out to sixth-grade families in the coming week to confirm you will be sending hybrid students to school for four days of face-to-face instruction per week.

If you are able to transport your child, you are asked to let your child’s teacher know in order to help school officials ensure they are able to transport children who would otherwise not have transportation. If there are any changes to your bus times or bus numbers, you will be notified by May 6.

Meanwhile, PreK through second grade hybrid students within Lynchburg City Schools are set to begin four days a week of in-person learning on Tuesday, April 13, followed by hybrid third through fifth graders on April 20.

School officials say there will not be any change in the instructional model for remote-only students — which is available for all students — for the remainder of the year.

In addition, new bus routes for grades PreK through five start on Tuesday.

However, the school district says students in grades seven through 12 will continue with the hybrid and remote schedules currently in place.
