CARROLL COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Many students in Carroll County’s public school system will be returning to the classroom.
During a School Board meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 12, the superintendent made a recommendation that all students — with the exception of Cavaliers Connected students — return to in-person learning four days a week starting on Monday, Jan. 25.
However, Wednesday will continue to be a remote-learning day.
The Carroll County School Board approved the recommendation.
Carroll County Public Schools will continue to enforce safety and cleaning protocols, as well as follow the health department and CDC guidelines for health checks, social distancing, and face coverings.
For example, students will be required to wear a mask while on buses with assigned seating in place.
In addition, the school district asks parents who can drop off their child and pick them up at school to do so.
“We are excited for our students to return to in-person learning and resume some sort of normalcy during this pandemic. The dedication and commitment of our employees should not go unnoticed as they have gone above and beyond expectations in these most challenging times. Our teachers and staff continue to work diligently to provide quality remote learning to all students and are more than prepared to return to in-person learning. Our sincerest thanks goes out to all employees, students and parents for their collaboration during these most difficult times.”Carroll County Public Schools
In a social media post on Wednesday, Jan. 13, Carroll County school officials said that even though Jan. 25 is the scheduled first day for students to return to class, they reserve the right to delay reopening in the event of a local outbreak or state mandate.
