All Mineral County Students to Resume In-Person Learning Monday

February 25th, 2021 by WCBC Radio

Beginning Monday, Mineral County public school students at every grade level will return to school buildings for in-person instruction.

Superintendent Troy Ravenscroft announced the decision on Wednesday, following the West Virginia Board of Education’s vote Tuesday to mandate as of March 3 the full-time return of students in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, regardless of a county’s status on the state’s color-coded map.

A second motion decreed that high school students should attend school in-person five days per week unless the county is red on the state’s COVID-19 daily alert map.

Per the state order, counties may apply for a waiver for four days of in-person instruction rather than five. Ravenscroft said Mineral County has done that.

Families that elected for fully remote learning are not affected.
