Clayton County Superintendent Morcease Beasley will give the public an update on the school system’s upcoming plans to return to buildings during a YouTube Live on Friday.

This district, which just returned from a winter break Wednesday, has been learning remotely this week because of surging COVID-19 infections caused by the highly transmissible omicron variant.

Beasley has said face-to-face instruction would resume on Monday, but recently asked parents and students to fill out a survey asking their opinions on meeting in school buildings.

Beasley also has said teachers and staff at Clayton County Schools must submit a negative COVID-19 test in order to return to buildings on Monday.

The YouTube Live discussion will begin at 1 p.m.
