Pulaski County Schools closes all school facilities

The Pulaski County School System has issued the following statement on their Facebook page.

Notice- All school facilities (including playgrounds, athletic fields, gyms, tracks, weight rooms, etc.) are closed to the public until further notice. While we understand the wish for student athletes to continue developing their skills, this cannot occur on school grounds. Governor Northam’s Executive Order 55 places limits on the use of school facilities for food services, emergency child care, and continuity of education purposes only.
We all look forward to returning to business as usual and getting students back into our buildings and onto our fields. However, now is the time to practice discipline and patience through social distancing as we try to limit the spread of COVID 19 in Pulaski County. Thanks for your attention to this issue.
