HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Winter break has come and gone and students are returning to classes, but not necessarily to their normal schedules.

Huntsville City School students will stay on a staggered learning schedule through the end of next week, January 15.

The announcement came Tuesday after school officials said administrators are continuing with the staggered schedule following an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in the area and consultation with public health officials.

The schedule for next week is as follows:

Cohort A:

  • Monday, Jan. 11 and Tuesday, Jan. 12: On campus learning
  • Wednesday, Jan. 13 - Friday, Jan. 15: Remote learning

Cohort B:

  • Monday, Jan. 11 and Tuesday, Jan. 12: Remote learning
  • Wednesday, Jan. 13 - Friday, Jan. 15: On campus learning

This announcement does not impact students enrolled in Huntsville Virtual Academy (HVA).

Officials with the school system want to remind everyone of the district’s health protocols while on campuses including requiring students and staff members to wear masks at all times, practicing social distancing to the greatest extent possible, encouraging frequent hand washing and sanitizing, adhering to direction signs, and prohibiting visitors in school buildings.
