2 Virginia elementary schools start year-round school

By: | July 19, 2021

Falling Creek Elementary School and Bellwood Elementary School students will both go to school year-round for 2021-22. Students will still get breaks through the school year, they will just be shorter and more frequent.

Grades 1-5 started their day Monday, and kindergartners will have a staggered return.

The district’s current mask guidelines include wearing them inside, regardless of vaccination status.

Students who are outside during P.E. or recess don’t have to mask up. If they’re inside exercising, they don’t need to wear one if they’re six feet apart.
