Stafford County First in D.C. Region to Bring Back Students for Fall

Northern Virginia’s Stafford County Public Schools began the new academic year Monday by bringing back students for full-time in-person learning, the first D.C.-area school system to do so.

Superintendent Scott Kizner said masks will be mandated for the school system’s staff and almost 30,000 students, WTOP reported. Students and teachers will be wearing masks inside schools except during lunch, recess and gym classes.

“I believe our students and staff understand the importance” of wearing masks, Kizner said, WTOP reported. “I think people are just ready to get back to a routine.”

About 500 students have chosen to stick with online classes for the time being, the superintendent said.

“There’ll be a little apprehension because COVID is far from over and we’re bringing back a lot of children,” he said, WTOP reported.
