Radford City Public Schools will resume in-person classes sooner than expected
RADFORD, Va. (WDBJ) - Radford City Public School students will return to the classroom Aug. 31. This comes after the district originally delayed the return to in-person classes to Sept. 8.
Officials from the New River Health District determined there was minimal exposure to COVID-19 from a large group gathering over the weekend.
Superintendent Rob Graham said there are no cases of COVID-19 in the school system, and the district will continue to monitor that over the next few days. Graham said this is a wakeup call to follow public health protocols.
“We’re doing the best that we can and we have a wonderful staff that is working very hard to provide for our community,” Graham said. “We also have a community that has been extremely supportive and I just hope that they will continue to be.”
All schools are being sanitized before the transition back to the hybrid plan.
