COVID-19 is prompting Banks County Schools to switch to virtual learning after the holiday break.
“We continue to have a large number of personnel who have tested positive for Covid or must quarantine due to direct exposure,” a statement issued today states.
“As a result, we will pivot to virtual learning beginning Tuesday, Jan. 5, through Friday, Jan. 8. Teachers will send information next week regarding schedules and assignments.”
Meals will be provided for students next week, with details to be released via social media and the system website.
System officials will continue monitoring data and will alert parents if the virtual learning period is extended.
