PULASKI COUNTY, Va. (WFXR) — Students at a Pulaski County middle school and high school will each have a designated virtual learning day next week because of staffing shortages in the district, school officials say.
According to Pulaski County Public Schools, this “synchronous virtual instruction” will take place on Monday, Sept. 13 for students at Pulaski County High School and on Friday, Sept. 17 for students at Pulaski County Middle School.
During these remote learning days, the district says students will not report to their respective schools. Instead, they are asked to participate in virtual classes during the times that they would have attended in-person instruction.
School officials say this decision is based on staffing shortages within the school division, not because of specific coronavirus cases within Pulaski County schools.
Meanwhile, Pulaski County Public Schools’ goal is to keep elementary schools operating in-person five days a week for as long as possible.
