“Frederick County Public Schools will be welcoming students back for in-person learning five days per week in 2021-22 with a virtual option for families who choose that option. We are excited for the upcoming school year and welcoming students no matter where they are learning.”
Masks will be required
The Alexandria City School Board has approved the Superintendent’s recommendation to require masks for everyone inside all ACPS facilities as we return to five days a week of in-person learning this month, regardless of vaccination status.
To ensure a safe start to the school year, layered prevention strategies will be in place in all schools, including wearing a mask while indoors.
Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) believes that students are best served in-person. It is critical for the academic progress of students, and their social and emotional growth and well-being, that they return to the classroom in-person as rapidly and as safely as possible.
For those families who have opted to have their students be served fully virtually for the 2021-22 school year, PWCS will ensure a high-quality and rigorous education for every child regardless of the mode of delivery of their education.
