Alleghany County Public Schools Extend 100% Virtual Classes

Low Moor, VA (Dec. 31, 2020) - Alleghany County Public Schools (ACPS), along with other districts in Southwest Virginia, continue to deal with the rising increase in COVID-19 cases relevant to the holiday season. ACPS has been working diligently to provide a safe and effective learning environment for our staff and students.

Because of increased cases and out of safety and supported guidance from the Virginia Department of Health, ACPS will extend operation of all schools on a 100% virtual/remote learning schedule for one additional week, January 4 through January 8, 2021. Schools will now tentatively resume in-person instruction on the established hybrid/blended learning plan on Monday, January 11. Again, no students will attend school in person, as ALL learning will be done 100% virtually/remotely. Parents may continue to monitor student progress by accessing their PowerSchool accounts, as has been the practice.

Over the next week, ACPS will also be revisiting our current participation in athletics, as to determine future steps for our student athletes. We acknowledge that our area continues to experience high COVID-19 cases; therefore, we will review our daily operations in regards to health mitigation strategies, Phase III guidance provided by the Virginia High School League, and the Governor’s executive orders regarding spectators and our ACPS return to play guidelines.

During the remote learning period, all schools will continue to be extensively cleaned.  Food service will continue during the 100% remote learning period.  Grab-n-go meals will be provided to all children age 18 and under at various locations on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, January 4 through January 8, 2021. All schools will have meals (2 unitized breakfasts and lunches) available for pick up on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 9am-1pm. Meal service will operate on the school calendar schedule.  Meals will not be provided on inclement weather days or closures due to emergency.  If you have any questions about the meal program, please call Debra Buckner at 540-863-1812. The meal delivery schedule is listed below:
