Pulaski County Schools announces all-virtual plan

New River Valley News

PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — In a letter to sent to the Pulaski County Public School (PCPS) community on Wednesday, officials have announced that an all-virtual plan will begin on Nov. 23.

According to the letter from Wednesday, Nov. 18, this change is due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in Pulaski County and a “large number of PCPS employees to have to enter into quarantine which had a detrimental impact on our ability to sufficiently staff our schools.”

The virtual instruction is slated to run from Nov. 23 until Dec. 4; however, a 50-percent virtual/face-to-face instruction will take place between Dec. 7 until at least Jan. 8, 2021.

The district’s goal is to be able to return to 100-percent in-person instruction on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays as early as possible in 2021.

“We do anticipate that Wednesdays will remain a virtual learning day for the foreseeable future to ensure that all of the processes for full virtual instruction are maintained in the event that additional shut-downs become necessary,” read the letter.
