BUENA VISTA, Va. (WFXR) — Buena Vista public school students are set to return to the classroom for in-person classes at least twice a week starting on Monday.

According to Buena Vista City Schools, effective Monday, Jan. 11, PreK through seventh grade students will attend in-person classes four days a week while eighth through 12th grade students attend two days a week.

“We continue to work to make our schools as safe as possible during this pandemic by following our rigid cleaning procedures and our mitigation strategies (frequent hand washing, physical distancing, and wearing masks),” the school district posted on Facebook on Thursday, Jan. 7.

Buena Vista school officials say face coverings will be required for at all times for students — except during recess, where a 10 foot distance will be required; while eating lunch or snacks; while playing an instrument if they are 10 feet apart; and during periodic mask breaks — and staff members while inside.

If you have any questions about your child’s specific school or prefer to have your child remain all virtual rather than resume face-to-face learning, you are asked to call your building principal:
