On Sunday, September 13, 2020, the Virtus Academy of South Carolina Board of Directors voted unanimously to allow students to return to school in person five days a week.
The board heard from Principal Hamilton on the matter, who presented three different scenarios. The first was to continue the current plan of action. The second was an A/B option that would split each class into two groups and alternate days. The final choice was a full re-entry to a regular schedule for all students. All options allow for parents to choose between traditional instruction or virtual school.
The students will return to school on Monday, September 28, 2020. The board also put in place extra measures so that if students leave school with symptoms, they must bring a negative test result back to be allowed to return.
