Back to School

MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Members of the Montgomery County School Board voted on Tuesday to move to bring older students back to the classroom for at least part of the school day starting next week.

According to Montgomery County Public Schools, the school board decided on Tuesday, Jan. 19, to shift to Phase 3, Level 2 in the district’s instruction plan, effective Tuesday, Jan. 26.

In other words, starting on Jan. 26, seventh through 12th graders will be able to attend in-person classes four days a week on a half-day schedule, the district.

This vote reportedly does not impact PreK through sixth grade students, who will continue with their current schedule.

School officials say students will proceed with their current schedule through Thursday, Jan. 21. However, Friday, Jan. 22 and Monday, Jan. 25 are scheduled as teacher workdays, which means students will not have assignments on those days.
