FOWLKES & PETTIS ON SHORT END OF 3-2 VOTE

In a 3-2 decision, the Nottoway School Board voted Thursday night to allow students in grades 5-12 to return to school for in-person instruction when the second semester begins February 4th.

The decision comes as Nottoway’s COVID-19 total rose 14% over the past week (Jan. 11-18th) with 185 confirmed new cases.

February 4th will mark the first classroom instruction for students at Nottoway Intermediate, Middle, and High Schools since the pandemic closed schools last March -- 11 months ago. Only English as a Second Language (ESL) learners and students with disabilities in those grades have been receiving some instruction at school.
