ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — After Friday’s successful vaccination event for K-12 school employees in the Roanoke Valley area, health officials have scheduled a follow-up event to administer the second dose of the coronavirus vaccine in mid-February.

Just like with the first vaccination event, Roanoke County Public Schools say schools will be closed for a teacher workday on Feb. 12.

The school district released the following schedule for the week of Feb. 8 through Feb. 12:

  • Monday, Feb. 8: Regular school day for PreK through fourth grade and Group 1 for fifth through 12th grade (A day for secondary students)
  • Tuesday, Feb. 9: Regular school day for PreK through fourth grade and Group 2 for fifth through 12th grade (A day for secondary students)
  • Wednesday, Feb. 10: School closed for a teacher workday (at home), which means teachers will not schedule synchronous learning and student services will not be provided, but students are encouraged to take the opportunity to complete their assignments
  • Thursday, Feb. 11: Regular school day for PreK through fourth grade and Group 1 for fifth through 12th grade (B day for secondary students)
  • Friday, Feb. 12: Schools closed for a teacher workday (in school) and the second dose vaccination event, which means teachers will not schedule synchronous learning and student services will not be provided, but students are encouraged to take the opportunity to complete their assignments

“Once again, we would like to express our thanks and appreciation to the Roanoke City Alleghany Health Department and Carilion Clinic for providing these vaccinations for K-12 staff,” Roanoke County Public Schools wrote on Facebook on Tuesday, Jan. 26. “We also want to thank our parents and staff for being flexible as we work to help our staff receive vaccinations.”
