Alleghany County Public Schools Return to 100% Virtual Classes


Alleghany County Public Schools (ACPS), along with other districts in Southwest Virginia, continue to deal with the rising increase in COVID-19 cases. ACPS has been working diligently to provide a safe and effective learning environment for our staff and students.  Because of increased cases and out of safety and supported guidance from the Virginia Department of Health, ACPS will operate all schools on a 100% virtual/remote learning schedule beginning Monday, December 14 through Tuesday, December 22.  Schools are closed, with no instruction, on December 23 through January 1 for the holidays. Schools will tentatively resume in-person instruction on the established hybrid/blended learning plan on Monday, January 4.  This tentative return will be dependent on guidance and/or current data closer to that date.  Again, no students will attend school, as ALL learning will be done 100% virtually/remotely. 


Parents may continue to monitor student progress by accessing their PowerSchool accounts, as has been the practice.


During the remote learning period, all schools will continue to be extensively cleaned.  Food service will continue during the 100% remote learning period.  Grab-n-go meals will be provided to all children age 18 and under at various locations on Monday, Wednesday and Friday through December 21.  All schools will have meals (2 unitized breakfasts and lunches) available for pick up on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday between 9am-1pm.  Meal service will operate on the school calendar schedule.  Meals will not be provided on inclement weather days or closures due to emergency.  If you have any questions about the program, please call Debra Buckner 863-1812.  The meal delivery schedule is listed below:
