LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Officials with Lynchburg City Schools announced on Friday that they will be unveiling online curriculum on Monday.
District officials say they’ll be working to make sure families have the internet access they need and making sure that guardians who never planned to home-school children are able to adapt.
Since Governor Ralph Northam called for schools to close for the rest of the school year, the district has been developing plans to teach essential lessons they would have covered in the classroom and make sure students are prepared for the fall.
“While there are some things that are screen time,” said Superintendent Dr. Crystal Edwards, “we were very mindful to have some activities that did not require kids to sit in front of a screen for long periods of time. We still want some movement ed, health, and PE-type activities in there. It’s important to have some family time.”
District officials also gave an update on their meal delivery program.
This past week, they delivered about 14,000 breakfasts and 14,000 lunches to Lynchburg children and teens, two of each meal every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.
