AMHERST COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Even though Amherst County students are not expected to return to the classroom until Sept. 13 due to the district’s coronavirus-related closure, school officials still want to provide parents with the option to continue their child’s learning from home.

Amherst County Public Schools shared a number of learning materials –which do not need to be completed since they will not be graded — with reading and math concepts for PreK through 12th grade.

For students enrolled in Virtual Virginia, you are asked to continue accessing your courses as usual since the Amherst County closure does not impact Virtual Virginia.
