Back to School

WYTHE COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Public school students in Wythe County will be spending one less day a week in the classroom following a decision made by the Wythe County School Board Monday morning.

According to Wythe County Public Schools, the school board approved a motion on Monday, Jan. 25, to drop from five days a week of face-to-face instruction to only four days a week.

Effective immediately, school officials say students will attend in-person classes on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, with a 2 p.m. dismissal.

However, on Wednesdays, students are set to return to remote learning.

This announcement was made the same day that students were supposed to begin their five day in-person learning schedule.
