CBS19: Louisa County Public Schools faculty, staff prepare for start of school year


Louisa County Public Schools faculty and staff are preparing to welcome more than 5,000 students back into the classrooms next week.

The school division held its annual convocation in-person on Tuesday after the event went virtual last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elected officials such as Representative Abigail Spanberger, D-7th, were in attendance as well.

This year, students can opt to go 100 percent virtual five days a week or fully in-person five days a week.

Fully vaccinated students and staff will not be required to wear masks indoors, though that’s open to change.

“We’re very excited to get our staff back this week and our students back next week as we really head into what I would say is one of the most rewarding years in education,” said Superintendent Doug Straley.

The school year begins for students on Aug. 11.
