Superintendent Verletta White says she and the rest of her team are excited to kick off the school year.
“We’re so excited, this is what we do this is what we prepare for we can’t wait to get to teaching and learning to get to know all of our students and so we’re just so excited,” Superintendent Verletta White said.
Roanoke City Schools will be doing virtual classes for a majority of its students. The Health Department will have a drive thru immunization clinic Monday morning for students.
