COVID-19 & Virginia Public Schools
The Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) has been working closely with the Governor’s Office, the Virginia Department of Health, and other state agencies to ensure our schools and communities have the most up-to-date information and resources. The health and safety of our children and staff are our top priorities. Here is the latest news regarding COVID-19 and Virginia schools:
- On January 14, 2021 Virginia released updated Interim Guidance for K-12 School Reopening, which consolidates and replaces the July and October guidance previously provided. Visit Interim Guidance for Reopening for the guidance, and an introductory letter from Dr. Norman Oliver, State Health Commissioner; and Dr. James Lane, State Superintendent of Public Instruction.
