NORFOLK, Va. (AP) - Some students in Norfolk, Virginia, will be returning to the city’s public schools for the first time since the coronavirus pandemic closed them nearly a year ago.

The Virginian-Pilot reports that Norfolk’s school board on Wednesday approved a plan to allow elementary school students to return for in-person learning on a hybrid schedule in mid-March.

“We would want all of our kids in school right now under ideal conditions,” Superintendent Sharon Byrdsong said.

Teachers and staff ae due to return to school buildings on March 1. Elementary school students could start returning to buildings on March 15, followed by middle school students on April 12 and high school students on April 26. Remote learning will remain an option for any family.
