Editor's note: The Courier received this press release after tomorrow's paper had already gone to press. This story supersedes tomorrow's story about the LCSS going virtual after the holiday break.
According to a press release issued by the Liberty County School System, students will return to virtual learning only much sooner than they originally reported.
The release stated, "Due to the rise of COVID-19 in the Liberty County School System, all “in-person” learners will move to virtual learning starting Dec. 17 and 18. All students will attend classes virtually on Dec. 17th and 18th following their regular daily schedule."
The release said that teachers will continue to provide virtual instruction using Canvas and Google Meets. Teachers who can provide instruction virtually from their homes will be allowed to do so Dec. 17 and 18.
Dr. Perry, Superintendent of Schools stated, “I would like to thank the parents, students, staff and community for working together during this process. Please remember to keep your families safe by following the 3 W’s: Wash your hands, Watch your distance, and Wear your mask!”
