LAURENS, SC (FOX Carolina) - Students in Laurens County School District 55 that are not attending the Laurens County Virtual Academy will return to five-days-a-week in-person instruction after Thanksgiving on November 30, according to a release from the district.
This means that 7th, 9th and 10th grade students will end their hybrid schedule and return to in-person classes full time, according to the district.
Laurens 55 superintended Dr. Ameca Thomas says that the final shipment of Plexiglas with continued COVID-19 safety measures are what allowed the district to return to in-person learning.
The district says that it will need to plan for the future influx of in-person students who are currently still attending the Laurens County Virtual Academy.
Around 950 students are planning to continue to stay online the the Virtual Academy during the spring semester.
