CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – Harrison County School officials are changing the schedule for students beginning on October 5.
The Board of Education has decided to add one more day to in-person schooling per week after reassessing the schedule after the first two weeks. This takes the population from 20% in school to 50%.
Harrison county remains in the “yellow” category on Governor Justice’s COVID school map, and school officials are continuing to work with the Harrison County Health Department to monitor the number of cases closely.
“We’re watching that every day and things can change, but for right now when we say we’re going to go back in on this two day schedule, we will run it for the end of the nine weeks. We’re not going to change it again. We’ll take it to the end of the nine weeks and then we’ll reassess at the end of the nine weeks,” said superintendent Dora Stutler.
The schedule was put together so that all grades except pre-k will be able to attend in-person classes two consecutive days in a row.
