George County to go to virtual learning Friday due to COVID

George County School District has announced that the schools will be conducting virtual learning Friday.

An announcement from Superintendent Wade Whitney Jr. said that because of an increase in the number of positive COVID tests in the community and schools, the district has a shortage of staff and will be unable to cover all classrooms.

“As a result, we will be conducting a virtual learning day tomorrow, Friday, January 14,” Whitney said in the press release.

Students and staff are asked to not report to school campuses. Instead, in-person learning will resume on Tuesday, January 18, after the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., holiday on Monday.

Whitney said anyone with questions should reach out to their local school.

“As always, we appreciate your continued support and cooperation,” Whitney said in the press release. “We encourage you to stay safe and healthy.”
