High school, middle school, and upper elementary school students might be returning to in-person classes later than expected.
Prince William County Public Schools (PWCS) Superintendent Steve Walts shared a revised Return to Learning Plan to the School Board on Wednesday.
As part of the plan, fourth, fifth, sixth, and ninth grade students may begin returning to in-person classes on April 20, according to an article on the PWCS website.
Seventh, eighth, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders could go back starting on April 27.
These dates are two weeks after spring break, which will enable officials to watch for any rises in COVID-19 positive tests.
The delay also lines up with recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Virginia Department of Health (VDH), and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE).
The School Board is discussing the plan at a special meeting at 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday at the Kelly Leadership Center, 14715 Bristow Road in Manassas.
Students in second and third grade are still scheduled to start returning to in-person classes on Tuesday.
