GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) — Greenville County Schools released a statement on a bill requiring schools to offer the option of full-time and in-person instruction no later than April 26 regarless of the community’s COVID incidence rate.
Greenville County Schools will remove Plexiglass at all of the high schools and desks will be arranged in rows with at least 3 feet between each desk in order to meet the legal requirement of the bill. As a result, students will not be able to follow the social distancing guidance recommended for Greenville’s current incidence rate.
This only impacts students who were already in the brick and mortar program or those who were placed in the Virtual Program due to a lack of space.
There will be less of an impact at elementary and middle school levels because they have been in school full-time since before the Winter Break, according to Greenville Co. School District.
