VALDOSTA, Ga. (WTXL) — Valdosta City Schools is moving to virtual learning for all students as COVID-19 cases continue to rise, "being at an all-time high."

This means that all students will be learning from home through Google Classroom.

Valdosta City Schools has decided to reopen on January 6, with 100% virtual learning for all students through January 12. In-person instruction will resume on January 13.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 continues to dictate our mode of operation," said William “Todd” Cason, the superintendent of VCS. "Based on information the district received on December 30, highlighting COVID-19 cases in our area being at an all-time high. Reopening virtually will allow more time to identify COVID-19 cases or exposures among students and staff that may have occurred during the holiday season."

Each school will work with their students and families explaining how the virtual learning model will be continued for their classrooms.

Pinevale, S.L Mason, W.G. Nunn, Valdosta Middle School and the Central Office have external internet access points that allow any student to bring their device and download school assignments from the parking lot.

VCS will offer virtual meal sites starting Jan. 6, through Jan. 12, from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the locations below, student’s name and lunch ID number required.

  • Pinevale Elementary
  • S.L. Mason Elementary
  • W.G. Nunn Elementary
  • Valdosta Middle School
