Monroe County schools will have deep cleanings every Wednesday this fall

MONROE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – The Monroe County Board of Education announced a tentative plan for a deep cleaning in schools throughout the county every Wednesday.

The Board combined with stakeholders to bring this to fruition at the last meeting. The deep clean day would be in the middle of four instructional days starting this fall.

“We developed this plan,” said Monroe County Assistant Superintendent Jonathon McPherson. “It was a four-day week model with Wednesday being a more intensive deep clean. We would make sure that we’re cleaning after the students leave on those four days that they would be attending. Of course on that fifth day we would be able to do some more deep cleaning, and then also students would be able to have remote learning as well. It would still be an instructional day.

The Board’s most pressing concern is the safety of both its students and staff.
