A Hanover County middle school is planning to reopen for students on September 15. Liberty Middle School administrators decided to shutdown the middle school last week after three staff members tested positive for COVID-19. Custodians have completed a deep-cleaning of the buildings. According to the school’s website in-person instruction will begin at Liberty Tuesday. Today is a student holiday.
