FRANKLIN COUNTY, Va. – Franklin County Public Schools announced Sunday evening that virtual instruction will be initiated this week at one of its elementary schools.

Division Superintendent Dr. Bernice Cobbs said in an email to families that Snow Creek Elementary School will switch to virtual instruction from Monday, Jan. 11 to Friday, Jan. 15, and students will resume their normal schedule on Tuesday, Jan. 19.

Cobbs said this is due to the community spread of COVID-19 in Franklin County and the difficulty to provide adequate classroom supervision.

The email stated that the staffing issue stems from staff needing to quarantine.
