As of Monday, September 14, MCPS students in grades 4-12 will participate in online instruction. 

The following students will be able to attend school in person on their current schedule: 

  • students with an IEP (K-12),
  • students who are English Language Learners (K-12),
  • students without access to the internet (K-12),
  • students of employees (K-12), and 
  • all students in grades PK-3 as they are currently scheduled.

 Students who have 504 plans should contact the school to schedule a meeting.

 Students will receive their instruction remotely on their current schedule.

Students in grades 4-12 who are attending school online will have the same schedule as they currently have. The difference is that the classes will be conducted online instead of in-person.

Our teachers will make the next two weeks of online learning opportunities excellent for our students. We know that it will not be perfect, but our technology team and our teachers are standing by to do everything they can to support our students and our teachers through this process.

 MCPS made this change due to the projected increase in positive COVID-19 cases in our area. In consultation with the health department and the public health task force, we believe that this change is in the best interest of our students and the community. 

Other items to keep in mind for the next two weeks: 

  • MCPS childcare centers will stay open. 
  • Our buses will continue to run their current schedules to pick up the students who are eligible to be in schools. 
  • Parents can contact the school to schedule medication pickup. 
  • No extracurricular activities will be held, including athletics. 
  • Meal pickups will be available at the high schools

Free meals will be available for pickup at the high schools between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. To help with meal preparation, please email your cafeteria manager – Blacksburg High School, Sheri Linkous – to let them know how many meals you will pick up. Students will receive 1 breakfast and 1 lunch on Monday, Thursday, and Friday. Students will receive 2 breakfasts and 2 lunches on Tuesdays because the cafeterias are closed on Wednesdays. When you arrive at the school to pick up your meal, you should call the school at 951-5706 ext. 2033 to arrange for a no-contact pickup.
