SALEM, Va. (WFXR) — Starting next week, Salem City Schools will increase in-person attendance for older hybrid students so they spend four days a week in the classroom.

According to the school division’s announcement on Wednesday, March 17, students in grades three through 12 who are currently enrolled in the hybrid learning model will begin attending face-to-face classes four days a week on Monday, March 22.

School officials say students in learning groups A, B, C, and D will attend school on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, but Wednesdays, will still be used to support online learners.

Parents are encouraged to transport their children to and/or from school if possible in order to support physical distancing on buses.

In addition, Salem City Schools says face coverings will be required at all times except when eating meals.
