Greenbrier East High School is scheduled to reopen for in-person learning on Thursday, October 22. The high school transitioned to full remote learning earlier this week after an individual associated with the school tested positive for COVID-19.
Similar to the situation at Greenbrier West High School two weeks prior, school officials opted to close down the building in order to perform a thorough cleaning and sanitization. While speaking with the WV Daily News on Wednesday, October 21, County Superintendent of Schools Jeff Bryant confirmed that the building will be ready to reopen as scheduled.
“The teachers and staff are back today,” Bryant said. “Everything is ready to go for the students to return tomorrow.”
All extracurricular-activities, including sports, will resume on Thursday, as well.
Another measure Greenbrier County Schools have taken to protect the safety of students and staff was the installation of touchless water bottle filling stations. Greenbrier County Schools used funds made available through the CARES Act, and Bryant confirmed that the. stations have now been installed in all 13 county school buildings.
