Franklin County Public Schools on Thursday said it would move to all virtual learning for Rocky Mount Elementary School students starting Friday through Jan. 22 because of a “confirmed outbreak of COVID-19,” according to an email from Superintendent Bernice Cobbs.
The Jan. 23 Saturday study session scheduled at the school has been canceled as well.
A teacher workday is scheduled for Jan. 25, and students will return to school for in-person learning on Jan. 26. This also is the first day all county schools will return to four-day instruction.
During the closure, Cobbs said the building and buses would be deep cleaned. Food will be available to be picked up outside the school on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
