Interview with Governor Almond About School Closings
(WDBJ Television, Roanoke, VA)

Almond told reporters that he was very concerned about the "loss of social activities in the school...with reference to their athletic programs." Almond also said he and others worked "long hours" to create a plan to reopen public schools in "Norfolk, \, Arlington, Charlottesville - Arlington not as pressing as the others." In regard to announcing specifics about a plan to reopen public schools, Almond did not comment. Doing so, he believed, would jeopardize the plan.
