December 30th, 2020 by WCBC Radio

West Virginia Governor Jim Justice has  announced that West Virginia schools will reopen to in-person education for elementary and middle school students on January 19. During his regular COVID-19 briefing, Justice said this plan will give teachers, staff and students a little more than two weeks to prepare. He further announced that that high school students will still use the West Virginia County Alert Map and that those in “orange” advisory will be allowed to have in-person education.  Justice said that despite the best efforts of everyone involved, the virtual learning program is simply not working. In addition Justice announced that the winter sports schedule for high school will be moved again, now set to start on March 1st.
