Coronavirus Update

On August 12, Governor Northam announced an emergency health order which mandates all individuals aged two or older to wear a face mask when indoors at a public school, regardless of vaccination status or physical distancing.   To comply with the new measure, all Isle of Wight County Schools' students and staff will be required to wear a face covering while in a school building. 
Exceptions to the mask requirement include:
  • Individuals eating, drinking, or sleeping;
  • Individuals exercising or using exercise equipment;
  • Any person who is playing a musical instrument when wearing a mask would inhibit the
    playing of the instrument (e.g., wind or brass instrument) so long as at least six feet of
    physical distance can be maintained from other persons;
Additional exceptions are listed in the emergency health order.
Thank you to all of our employees, students, and families who have been adhering to the safety measures we have in place. 

We are hopeful that continuing our current practices will help keep our schools open and safe for our students and staff. Our students need to be in school, even with the restrictions in place, and we thank you and everyone in the community for helping us make it happen.

The ESSER 3.0 LEA ARP Plan is the ESSER 3.0 Spending and Monitoring Plan that was reviewed at the School Board Meeting on July 8th.  The Return to Safe-In Person Instruction outlines our plan for ensuring student safety and reducing virus transmission in the fall.
