LYNCHBURG, Va. (WFXR) — Students at an elementary school in Lynchburg will be learning remotely this week following a small fire early Friday morning.

Paul Munro Elementary School says there will not be any in-building instruction for students from Monday, Nov. 30, through Friday, Dec. 4, while maintenance and custodial crews clean and restore areas of the building that were impacted by a fire on Friday, Nov. 27.

According to school officials, all Cohort A and Cohort B students are asked to check in and complete all assignments remotely for the week through Google Classroom or SeeSaw.

Meanwhile, all students who are already 100-percent remote learners should continue to complete work as usual.

“We truly regret losing this valuable in-building instruction time with our hybrid learners, but our team is dedicated to ensuring your child does not miss out on any important lessons while ensuring the safety of staff and students,” Paul Munro Elementary School wrote on Facebook Monday.
