Back to School: Webinar offers information, updates on COVID-19’s impact on local education

Posted: September 13, 2021 at 8:44 am

Now that in-person learning has resumed, what is the risk of my child becoming sick with COVID-19? Are teachers required to get vaccinated?  Is remote learning still an option?

Back by popular demand, this month’s Power Hour webinar is turning the spotlight once again on education in the era of COVID-19. The Oct. 14 presentation will feature a panel of top local education officials, who will address the ongoing challenges and lingering questions that have emerged since the start of the new school year.

Leading the discussion are Dr. Barry Williams, superintendent of Gates County Schools, and Dr. Eric L. Cunningham, superintendent of Halifax County Schools.  They will provide an update on the state of local education and what parents and students can expect moving forward.

The hour-long webinar, which is free and open to all community members to attend,  will begin at 2 p.m.
