Greenbrier County BOE modifies school re-entry plan

Top Stories

LEWISBURG, WV (WVNS) — The Greenbrier County Board of Education made a few modifications to the school re-entry plan. This was part of scheduled midterm evaluation of the plan to go over how schools were operating during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The BOE decided to add two remote learning days each month for elementary students through January. The remote learning dates are November 4 & 18, December 2 & 16, and January 13 & 27. Students (PreK – 12) will not participate in Google Meets on these days. Board members believe this adjustment will give educators more time to manage delivering both in-person and remote instruction.

Here is a complete list of updates to the plan:

  • School closures for COVID 19 may be one or more days based on GBC Health Department directives.
  • The following Wednesdays will be remote learning days for all elementary students: November 4 & 18, December 2 & 16, and January 13 & 27. No Google Meets on these days (PreK-12).
  • Remote learners will enter a contract with the school. Administrators will be in contact with remote learning families.
  • Students who are not being successful as remote learners may be required to attend in-person classes.
  • An update to page 22 of the re-entry plan clarifies that if a student or employee tests positive for COVID-19, the Greenbrier County Health Department will notify the school. A closure of one or more days is possible based on results of contact tracing and Health Department directives. This could also result in the closing of other schools.
