More students in the Capital Region headed back to school Thursday. The Voorheesville School District has found an interesting way to stagger their arrival.
The district will use a phased re-entry program for in-person instruction on Thursday and Friday. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade, with last names "A" through "K," will start on Thursday. All sixth grade in-person learners will also begin Thursday.
Virtual learners, grades 7 through 12, will begin as well.
On Friday, it is in school and remote learning for those same grades for students with last names starting with "L" through "Z."
Elementary students and families will need to complete a COVID-19 screening online by 8 a.m. each day. Students in grades 6 through 12 will need to complete the form before 7 a.m. each day.
High school students put together an informational video for students and families about the new health and safety practices in the school.
Students in Schuylerville, Watervliet, and South Glens Falls also headed back to the classroom Thursday.
