ALLEGHANY COUNTY, Va. (WDBJ) - Alleghany County Public Schools announced Friday they will be moving to a temporarily all-remote format due to the increase in new COVID-19 cases throughout the region.

Schools will be closed for the holidays from December 23-January 1 and resume the previous blended format January 4. This date is tentative, based on guidance and case data.

Parents can continue to follow student progress through PowerSchool.

All schools will be thoroughly cleaned during the remote learning period, according to the school district.
