Hoover City Schools announces updated learning schedule

Hoover City Schools releases reopening plan

HOOVER, Ala. (WBRC) - Hoover City School leaders announced updates to the in-person learning schedule Monday.

Starting January 19, elementary school students will transition to four days a week of in-person learning. Students will work remotely on Wednesdays and crews will use that day to deep clean facilities.

The district will monitor the transition at the elementary level as they make decisions at the middle and high school levels. Interim Superintendent Dr. Tera Simmons says the district is starting with younger students because they’re contained to one class. No date was given on when a decision will be made.

Dr. Simmons says the district is still monitoring case spikes and substitute teacher pools as they make these decisions moving forward. She hopes teachers will have access to their first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine in February.
