COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WWBT) - Colonial Heights Public Schools will stay virtual through Jan. 22 due to COVID-19.

The division said the decision to stay virtual was due to the ability to staff traditional classrooms and the spike in COVID-19 cases.

Students were supposed to return to in-person learning on Jan. 19.

District officials will continue to evaluate returning to the “normal” schedule on a weekly basis.

“We urge families to continue to be diligent about wearing masks in public, handwashing, and practicing social distancing,” the district said.
