FROM EARLIER:

The Huntsville City Schools system is holding a virtual news conference on its new learning plan Wednesday at 2 p.m.

The district is updating students, parents and employees on how it will use traditional and digital resources for the rest of the school year.

Right now, we know the district worked with the City of Huntsville to reserve the Von Braun Center for graduation on June 25 and June 26. The school calendar will be followed with school ending on May 21.

April 6 will be a blended learning open house for teachers to reach out and families to learn the program. Lessons will start April 7.
