NEWPORT NEWS, Va. - The Newport News School Board voted on Tuesday for NNPS reopening plan for the 2020-21 school year.

During its special meeting, the school board voted for all students to begin the school year with virtual learning during the first quarter, which is from September 8 to November 2.

Next week, families may access a learning intent form through ParentVue to decide if their child(ren) will continue virtual learning through January 27, the end of the first semester.

Families can also indicate if their elementary student needs a loaner device and if they have child care needs.

Those without a ParentVue account may sign up for one by contacting their child's school.
