LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — All students at Heritage Elementary School are shifting to entirely online instruction temporarily both as a precaution and and in consultation with Lynchburg City Schools officials.

According to the school division, Heritage Elementary will switch to remote learning from Thursday, Dec. 10, through Friday, Dec. 18, with hybrid instruction set to resume on Monday, Jan. 4, 202.

However, Lynchburg City Schools says Heritage Elementary will continue to provide asynchronous instruction via Seesaw for Kindergarten through second grade students and Google Classroom for third through fifth grade students.

Meanwhile, individual classroom teachers will reportedly communicate with parents about synchronous opportunities, which may vary.

In addition, school officials say two-days’ worth of meals will be available to students through curbside pickup locations from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday.

Heritage Elementary School will continue to be cleaned and sanitized on a daily basis, according to Lynchburg City Schools.
