Students in McIntosh County are also headed back to school Monday. The school district gave families the option for in-person or virtual learning this fall.

School officials say about 20-percent of students will be learning virtually this school year. They say virtual learning will not be the same as it was in the spring. Students will now have a mix of teacher-made instructional videos and an online learning platform that will be more structured.
