HENRY COUNTY, VA – Henry County Public Schools has postponed the return to classroom instruction due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in the community.
Henry County Public Schools says that they can not appropriately staff in-person learning due to the coronavirus.
“At this time, positive cases of COVID-19 continue to prohibit staffing that will support in-person learning in our schools; therefore, HCPS will postpone its return to hybrid instruction until COVID cases in our community and among our students and staff have improved significantly,” the school district posted on Facebook.
Winter activities and competitions will also be postponed until hybrid instruction resumes.
“We will continue to evaluate the division’s status as we move toward the newly scheduled return to hybrid learning date. It is our commitment to offer our staff and families as much notice as possible prior to changing our learning plan so that childcare and other arrangements can be made in a timely manner,” HCPS added.
