MARTINSVILLE, Va. (WFXR) — Older elementary schoolers, middle schoolers, and certain high schoolers at Martinsville public schools will begin spending more time in the classroom next week.

Starting on Monday, April 12, Martinsville City Public Schools says in-person instruction will be expanded for third through eighth graders whose families selected hybrid learning on a survey distributed in February, as well as identified high school students who chose hybrid learning on the survey.

According to the school district, these students will have in-person learning on Mondays and Tuesdays followed by asynchronous learning on Wednesdays through Fridays.

School officials say they have contacted these families and will provide transportation based on the information provided by parents and guardians.
