The students at the Waynesboro Area School District will be going fully virtual until Jan. 4th
This closure comes after Superintendent Dr. Todd Kline made the decision to close elementary schools Summitview and Mowery due to the number of positive cases within a 14 day period.
“Virtual learning for all district schools will begin on Wednesday, Dec.16 and students will return to in-person learning on January 4, 2021,” Kline said. “Due to the number of positive cases in four of the buildings we decided to close the elementary schools, middle school and high school to discontinue the numbers of positive cases coming into the buildings.”
“If we all do our part, we can come back from Christmas break with a clean slate and keep moving forward to keep our kids in school,” Kline added.
This closure also leads into the upcoming holiday break. Today is student’s last full in-person day.
Students will follow the same procedures they followed last time schools went virtual.
