MONTGOMERY COUNTY, Va. – Montgomery County students will be back in the classroom, starting next week.
According to a post on the district’s Facebook page, students will go back to half-day in-person instruction for four days a week starting Sept. 28.
Students who have not opted for virtual learning will be in school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
The move comes after Montgomery County Schools moved to online learning for students in grades 4 through 12 because of an increase in coronavirus cases two weeks ago.
“I think the idea is to keeping people safe, as best as we can and education is important, I totally agree that it is a students right,” School Board Chair Gunin Kiran said.
Wednesdays will still be reserved for deep cleaning days. Students who have opted for an online instruction schedule will not change.
