HENRY COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students from several classes at a Henry County elementary school will spend the rest of October learning virtually after a positive coronavirus case emerged at the school.
According to Monica Hatchett, the Director of Communications with Henry County Public Schools, says a positive COVID-19 case was reported from Rich Acres Elementary School on Tuesday, Oct. 20.
Due to concerns about potential exposure, some classrooms at Rich Acres Elementary will learn virtually until Nov. 4, but Hatchett says the rest of the school is still open and operating on a hybrid schedule.
This news comes after another Henry County school — Laurel Park Middle School — closed to in-person classes until Nov. 4 after two staff members reported testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.
