Forsyth County schools will open Aug. 6 as scheduled, and with students given two options: face-to-face or virtual instruction.

"The new K-5 virtual learning option is being created in direct response to the feedback we received from parents/guardians in recent surveys," and it will not look like this spring's COVID-19 response, according to the Forsyth school district's "Restart" web site.

Virtual K-5 students will have a full school day Monday through Friday, and expectations will be just as rigorous as for in-class students. An online selection form will go out to parents Friday and are due back July 10. Virtual Town Hall meetings the week of July 6 will give details.

Students in sixth through 12th grade will have the option of enrolling in the Forsyth Virtual Academy program; the deadline to register is July 31. Students will still maintain official enrollment at their assigned schools and will be able to participate in school activities and athletics. For program details: https://www.forsyth.k12.ga.us/fva
