Geneva County Schools reopening plan amid COVID-19


GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — Geneva County Schools will be back in session two weeks from Friday.

Teachers will return to work for professional development Monday, Aug 2nd and students will return Friday, Aug 6.

School will be back in full force with no strict COVID-19 protocols in place such as wearing masks. But, the water fountains will remain closed.

Superintendent Becky Birdsong says she will monitor things closely and if they need to act fast, they’ll be prepared.

But the option of virtual learning will not be available to all students.

“We had some students who were virtual but we’re not offering that this year except for grade 9-12 there is a law that requires that,” Birdsong said. “But for grades Pre-K through 8 we’re only in person we know that’s the best way for students to learn.”

Birdsong says class sizes should be a little smaller this year and she’s keeping fingers crossed for a safe year.
