PIKE ROAD, Ala. (WSFA) - Students who attend Pike Road Schools will be taught virtually on Friday, according to a statement released by the system’s superintendent.

The virtual learning day is being held because of the possibility of icy driving conditions that morning. Thursday classes are not affected and will be held at school on normal schedule.

Supt. Chuck Ledbetter said PRS wanted to give parents as much notice as possible to make any needed arrangements for Friday.

The superintendent also noted that PRS is seeing a rise in the number of reported positive and suspected COVID infections among students and staff.

“As we have done in the past, we will evaluate our data on Friday and determine which campuses will have a mask requirement and which campuses will be “mask preferred,” Ledbetter explained, with an update set for Friday afternoon.

The system will be back on regular schedule as of Monday.
