We have learned of two positive cases of COVID-19 at Locust Grove Primary School. In cooperation with the Virginia Department of Health the decision has been made to stop in-person learning beginning Monday, December 14 through Tuesday, December 22 at LGPS.  Students will continue to receive instruction through the division’s online platform.  In-person instruction for LGPS students will resume on Monday, January 4.

Students who are deemed a close contact will be notified by the school division and may be contacted by the Virginia Department of Health.  As prescribed by the Virginia Department of Health, siblings of LGPS students designated as a close contact may continue in-person learning at other schools if they meet the following:

*The student is asymptomatic;

*The student does not have a pending COVID-19 test; and

*The student wears a face covering at all times while in the building and/or on the school bus.

Please contact the Rappahannock Rapidan Health District at RRHDCOVIDHotline@vdh.virginia.gov if you have questions or need additional information.
