    School Division Receives Information on COVID-19,  Update on Virtual Academy


    PETERSBURG, VA 7 OCTOBER 2020- The Petersburg City Public Schools Board held its regularly scheduled meeting on Wednesday, October 7th. The Board members received an update on the reopening of schools from Dr. Maria Pitre-Martin, Superintendent of Petersburg City Public Schools during the meeting. At the beginning of the meeting, Board members passed a resolution recognizing October as Anti-bullying Month and an additional resolution proclaiming October as National Principals Month.

    The first presentation of the meeting came from the District Health Director for the Crater District Health Departments, Dr. Alton Hart and Ms. Katrina Safrey,  the Senior Epidemiologist with the Crater Health District.  During their briefing to the Board on the status of COVID-19 in the Petersburg community and Crater Health region, Ms. Safrey and Dr. Hart shared detailed data from the Virginia Department of Health COVID-19 dashboard. Based on the data presented, the Petersburg Virtual Academy will remain in place at this time.

    “Now that the Virtual Academy has been up and running for almost a month, we wanted to be sure that we are being responsive to the needs of our families,” offered Dr. Maria Pitre-Martin.  “Analyzing how our students are utilizing technology  in the virtual academy and getting feedback from families on their experience to date is essential if we are going to continue to provide high quality remote instruction,” she added. The Superintendent emphasized that the school division has a better picture of students who are actually enrolled and attending school since the first week of the Virtual Academy began.

    During the Superintendent’s update on the reopening of schools presentation, Dr. Pitre-Martin highlighted the work and infrastructure in place that was used to prepare and sustain the Virtual Academy. Dr. Pitre-Martin iterated the need for the school division to continue its efforts in achieving more effective two-way engagement and communication with Petersburg families.  She encouraged all families to contact their school with their most up-to-date phone numbers and email addresses.
