KANAWHA COUNTY, W.Va. (WSAZ) - Guidance from the West Virginia Board of Education has changed plans for the return to school in Kanawha County.

However counties will be able to begin with a blended learning model. That is what Kanawha County plans to do.
Students who are enrolled in in-person learning through the blended model will begin on Tuesday, Jan. 19 until Monday, Feb. 8.
According to the website dates and days for attendance are as follows:
⋅Monday, Jan. 18 is the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day holiday and everyone is off.
⋅If your student’s last name begins with A-L, they will attend Tuesday, Jan. 19 and Wednesday, Jan. 20.
⋅If your student’s last name begins with M-Z, they will attend Thursday, Jan. 21 and Friday, Jan. 22.
⋅Any student who selected eLearning and virtual students will stay remote as planned.
