It’s back to class, on campus, five days a week for many middle- and high-school students in the Columbus County Schools beginning April 12, spokesman Kelly Jones announced Tuesday.
Students currently enrolled in the hybrid learning program, spending two days each week on campus, will return to full-time learning.
“We will assume all students that now attend two days per week will attend five days per week,” Jones said. “We will also assume that students who are 100 percent virtual will remain 100 virtual.
Students and parents will have an opportunity to change their option, either to or from full time virtual to full time in person, but the student’s school must be notified by April 1.
“Students will no longer have an option to attend two days a week and be virtual the other three days,” Jones said.
Safety precautions will remain on campus.
“We will continue to require masks and social distance to the extent possible, as well as be diligent about sanitization,” Jones said. “We have yet to have a single case of COVID transmission at a school facility, so we are confident that we can return full-time safely.”
