GLOUCESTER CO., Va. - Gloucester County Public Schools are set to have all grades return to in-person learning by the first day of the second quarter.

Gloucester school officials says 1st-3rd graders will return on October 19, followed by 6th and 12th graders returning on October 26.

Some students actually returned to in-person learning on September 21, starting with special education students. Pre-K and Kindergarten, along with some students in selected specialized programs returned on September 28.

Gloucester Co. Public Schools says they plan to also transition 4th and 5th graders, plus grades 7 through 11 to in-person learning on November 12, marking the first day of the second quarter.

School officials say this plan was finalized in July, however it was based on transmission rates and guidance from the Three Rivers Health District.

In-person learning will be on a hybrid model of two days per week until further notice. Families who desire to continue with fully remote learning have that option as well.
