On August 3, the School Board of Isle of Wight County approved a plan for the reopening of schools. Parents of students at the pre-kindergarten through third grade levels and students with disabilities who have intensive support needs can select a blended, in-person learning model or a 100 percent virtual learning option. Fourth through twelfth grade students would begin the year with temporary remote learning in the in person continuum or 100 percent virtual learning for the first semester.
Parents must identify which option they wish to select for each of their children by Thursday, August 13 at 11:59 pm. This can be done through the Instructional Program Selection Form or by printing out and completing the attached form and returning it to your child’s school. Blank forms are also available at all Isle of Wight County public schools.
Isle of Wight County Schools will hold informational meetings to discuss the reopening plan on Monday, August 10, at 6:00 pm at Georgie D. Tyler and Tuesday, August 11, at 6:00 pm Westside Elementary. The meetings will be streamed live on the IWCS Facebook page and YouTube channel. Due to limited space and social distancing requirements, the district is requesting that only families with unreliable internet access attend in person.
