Liberty High School to hold virtual learning day on Monday to allow for contact tracing


BEDFORD COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students at one Bedford County high school will be learning remotely on Monday while officials conduct contact tracing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Bedford County Public Schools, all Liberty High School students will have a virtual instruction day and all after-school activities will be canceled on Monday, Oct. 18.

School officials also encourage Liberty High School students who attend instructional programs at Central Virginia Community College Lynchburg or Bedford, STEM Academy, Susie G. Gibson, or Governors’ School to work from home for the day.

The district says that Liberty High School families were sent a detailed message on Sunday, Oct. 17 from Principal Justin Tucker about the virtual learning day.

However, a follow-up message was posted on Bedford County Public Schools’ Facebook Sunday night saying that School Messenger was not working, meaning that many people did not receive the message about the virtual learning day.
