MUSLCE SHOALS, Ala. (WAFF) - Students at McBride Elementary School in Muscle Shoals will temporarily return to virtual learning.

All grades within the elementary school will transition to remote learning starting Friday, February 5 through Friday, February 12.

This allows all students and staff members at McBride a full 10-day period of separation. McBride Elementary students will return for in-person classes on Tuesday, February 16, the day after Presidents Day holiday.
