Students will have until this Friday, November 20th to complete a survey asking students and parents whether they wish to be part of the virtual learning group or the in-person learning group for second semester.

The first 9 weeks concluded on November 10th, and report cards were made available on Tuesday, November 17th through the parent portal. Although roughly 400-500 students have been learning in-person, there has been a wait list for those wishing to return to school.

With the message from Governor Northam and the additional measures put in place for in-person learning, students and staff are waiting to find out if masks will be required and not just recommended for in-person students and staff.

Neighboring system Colonial Heights has been one of the few that has had students learning in-person but has recently gone to all virtual with the increase in COVID-19 positive cases in their high school. They are planning on returning to in-person instruction on November 30th after the Thanksgiving break.
