Some Prince William County students are heading back to school this fall.
The school system is planning to begin 50 percent in-person classes on November 10.
Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) Superintendent Steve Walts shared an update for the second quarter in a letter to parents and guardians.
From September 28 to October 4, adults will be able to choose whether they would like for their children to attend in person or virtually.
Those preferring online instruction are encouraged to carry out this decision for the full second quarter. Children with no option chosen will, by default, attend in person, Walts’ letter explained.
In-person students will come to school every other day. Those in middle and high school are going to attend each class once weekly.
Every day, students attending in-person classes should complete a self-check of COVID-19 symptoms and stay home if they have any.
Almost all staff and students must wear face masks most of the time.
Positive cases of the Coronavirus are possible if the illness levels stay consistent or increases. If they occur, students and staff might need to quarantine, in which case students would take classes online.
