PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Less than a week into the second semester of the school year, Pulaski County school officials announced plans for students to spend every school day in the classroom starting in mid-March.

Pulaski County Public Schools says March 15 is the target date to resume in-person instruction at every school five days a week.

“We are extremely happy to be taking this next step in our return to normalcy,” Pulaski County Public Schools said in a Facebook post on Wednesday, Feb. 10. “In order for this plan to succeed we will need to continue implementing all mitigation strategies, continue with all current modified bus routes, and adhere to the daily schedules that have been in place at each school.”

School officials plan to share more information about increasing face-to-face instruction in the coming weeks.

This news comes just six days after the school district kicked off the second semester with four days a week of in-person learning following a substitute shortage.

In addition, Pulaski County Public School has postponed the parent-teacher conferences from March 17 to March 23 because schools will be closed off to students for the special election.
