Health and Safety Practices

The COVID-19 pandemic has created health and safety challenges for school divisions across the globe. In an effort to support a healthy and safe physical environment for our students, employees, and community members, Albemarle County Public Schools (ACPS) is developing policies, protocols and procedures in alignment with guidance from the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) and public health officials, including the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); the Virginia Department of Health (VDH); the local Thomas Jefferson Health District (TJHD); and other nationally recognized guidance.

As they are established, ACPS will post our relevant practices here on the Health and Safety Practices web page.
