HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- Henrico School leaders approved a plan to return students to classrooms for in-person learning in February and March.

The approved plan is as follows:

    WEEK OF FEB. 22

    Feb. 22-23: In-person learning for students in pre-K through grade 2 who chose the in-person option. Virtual learning for all other students.

    Feb. 24: Wellness Wednesday for all students (abbreviated virtual learning and/or independent study).

    Feb. 25-26: Virtual learning for all students (some exceptions for small groups that have been engaging in limited in-person learning.)

    WEEK OF MARCH 1

    March 1-2: In-person learning for students in pre-K through grade 5, as well as students in grade 6 and grade 9 who chose the in-person option. Virtual learning for all other students.

    March 3: Wellness Wednesday for all students (abbreviated virtual learning and/or independent study).

    March 4-5: Virtual learning for all students (some exceptions for small groups that have been engaging in limited in-person learning.)

    WEEK OF MARCH 8:

    March 8-9: In-person learning for all students who chose the in-person option, including grades 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12. Virtual learning for all other students.

    March 10: Wellness Wednesday for all students (abbreviated virtual learning and/or independent study).

    March 11-12: In-person learning for all students who chose the in-person option, including grades 7, 8, 10, 11 and 12. Virtual learning for all other students.

    WEEK OF MARCH 15 AND BEYOND: Same as prior week. In-person learning for all students who chose the in-person option. Virtual learning for all other students. Wellness Wednesdays for all students (abbreviated virtual learning and/or independent study.)

    Teachers and staff will return to their school one week before their classrooms reopen to students.

    Students who have opted out of in-person learning will continue with online schooling.

    Students whose parents chose to send them to school for in-person will remain home on Wednesdays.

    During those days, the schools will undergo a deep clean and teachers will get a workday.

    Students whose families travel for Spring Break must first learn from home for seven to 10 days before returning to classrooms.

    This is a developing story.
