Superintendent and COVID Updates

 Northumberland Public Schools Heading  

December 3, 2020

Dear NCPS:

This morning we met with Dr. Richard Williams from the Three Rivers Health District to assess the reopening of schools for next week. While cases are on the rise, the latest guidance from the Virginia Department of Health (VDH) and Dr. Williams supports the reopening of schools on a hybrid schedule, while practicing strict virus mitigation protocols.

NCPS plans to reopen all schools on Monday, December 7, 2020, for in-person learning. The Gold group will attend on Monday and Tuesday, December 7 and 8, and the Green group will attend on Thursday and Friday, December 10 and 11. 

All parents and guardians will continue to have the option of choosing 100% virtual learning for their student(s) at any time. Please know NCPS will continue to utilize temporary school closures when necessary while offering 100% virtual learning opportunities for all students.  

These are challenging times and precautionary actions must be a priority for all. We will continue to emphasize the health and safety of all students and employees by cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting on a daily basis. 

Health, safety, and mitigation protocols will continue to be in place, including, but not limited to:

  • temperature checks

  • required face masks 

  • physical distancing of six feet when possible

  • frequent hand sanitizing and hand washing

  • frequent cleaning, sanitizing, and disinfecting


Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you need anything: (804) 466-2277 / (804) 994-1349.
