Henry County Public Schools postpones return to hybrid instruction until further notice


HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Due to the impact of coronavirus infections on in-person staffing capabilities, Henry County Public Schools is postponing students’ return to hybrid learning until further notice.

According to a statement released by the school district on Monday, Jan. 11, hybrid instruction will not resume until the community’s coronavirus cases — especially among students and staff members — show significant improvement.

In addition, Henry County school officials say winter activities and competitions will be postponed until hybrid learning starts up again.

Because it is critical for our students to receive high quality instruction each day, it is our goal to ensure that in-person learning is appropriately staffed when we return to hybrid instruction. At this time, positive cases of COVID-19 continue to prohibit staffing that will support in-person learning in our schools; therefore, HCPS will postpone its return to hybrid instruction until COVID cases in our community and among our students and staff have improved significantly. Winter activities and competitions will be postponed until hybrid instruction resumes.

We will continue to evaluate the division’s status as we move toward the newly scheduled return to hybrid learning date. It is our commitment to offer our staff and families as much notice as possible prior to changing our learning plan so that childcare and other arrangements can be made in a timely manner.

As has been the case throughout the pandemic, our teachers will continue to provide excellent instruction via virtual classes and students are encouraged to fully participate in all course activities.
