Some Franklin County students set to return to classrooms starting next week

Back to School

FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Some students in Franklin County will be returning to in-person learning starting Jan. 26.

In a Monday meeting on Monday, Jan. 18, the Franklin County School Board voted to allow Pre-K through seventh-grade students to return to the classroom four days a week.

However, students in grades eight through 12 will continue with remote learning, but that could change if there is a 14-day decline in COVID-19 infection rates.

The school board could amend the return if that occurs.
