Page County Public Schools issued the following notice on Thursday, Dec. 31:
Page County Public schools will continue with full remote learning for the next 2 ½ weeks.
We will resume our blended learning model (in person) as indicated on our amended calendar wherein Jan. 21 is an A day and Jan. 22 is a B day (we are already scheduled for remote days on Jan. 19 and Jan. 20 with Jan. 18 being a holiday).
After assessing our staffing needs via a recent survey, we have quite a few staff members on quarantine and finding sufficient coverage continues to be a hardship.
Also, with regards to metrics, our community positivity rate continues to increase although Page County’s cases per 100,000 saw a very slight decline this week after climbing substantially.
Another indicator we considered is our ability as a school division to implement our health plan and strategies with fidelity. All of these variables played into this decision in varying degrees.
We are anxious to get our students back in school with their teachers, yet we want to do so in the safest manner possible for everyone involved.
For now, teachers will continue to reach out to their students and work with them remotely. Please contact your school administrators with any concerns.

We are in this together, and we need everyone to continue working together in adhering to the recommended health strategies and protocols both at home and in the community.
Let us stay safe and healthy as we ring in a new year.
