CARROLL COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) – Dr. Mark Burnette, Superintendent of Carroll County Schools announced last week that all schools in the Carroll County division will change to all-virtual instruction beginning on Wednesday, Dec. 9.
In a letter released to the community, Burnette says that students will finish out the semester with distance learning which will continue until Jan. 15, 2021.
At that time, the school board will re-evaluate COVID-19-related data.
The letter also mentioned that all athletics and extracurricular activities will be delayed until Jan. 4, 2021, when a decision will be made whether or not to extend that date, depending on how COVID-19 continues to spread.
Students will be allowed to attend in-person on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 7 and 8, to give parents time to arrange for childcare, as well as to provide some time to allow teachers and staff to make plans for virtual instruction.
Below is a copy of the letter released to the community which outlines schedules, attendance, grading, extracurricular activities, meals, technical support, SOL testing and healthcare needs.
