The Greenville Public School District announces the return of virtual learning for all students until further notice.
GPSD Superintendent Dr. Debra Dace said the district is taking proactive measures to ensure the safety of all of its students, staff, and community stakeholders. Within the past weeks, there have been multiple confirmed cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) that were self-reported by faculty and staff.
“We’re looking to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, and we will place our students and schools back on virtual learning until further notice. We are making this shift to ensure that we are able to provide quality instruction to our children in an environment that is safe and conducive to learning,” Dace said.
As part of the district protocols, all impacted employees have been notified, and the district will continue to adhere to all Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and health department guidelines. The district will continue to implement the sanitization and deep cleaning of its schools and buildings, which is according to CDC guidelines for K-12 facilities.
Greenville Public School District services 4000-plus students in grades Pre-K (4) through 12th grade.
