Heating/Cooling Update: During this transition time in Spring, it is always difficult to determine when to "switch over" the heat to air conditioning. Once the switch is made, it is very difficult and time consuming to switch back. Therefore, we try to determine the most effective time to make that switch. After consultation with school administrators and staff it was decided to begin the process. All the schools with boilers have the heat turned off and the process of switching over has begun. The schools with cooling towers will be able to have air as soon as the process of cleaning the towers is complete. This process is anticipated to be completed by early next week. Thank you for your understanding, WCPS Schools

Washington County Schools Theatre Arts Camp at Emory & Henry College is back for our 3rd year! Camp runs Monday through Saturday, June 10-15 from 8:30-3:30 daily, with a final presentation on Saturday afternoon, June 15th. To be eligible for camp, students must live in Washington County, VA and be a rising 3rd through 12th grader. Camp is free to families and includes daily programming, a T-shirt, lunch, and even a trip to Barter Theatre! In the past we have had overwhelming interest in our camp, and while we want to include every student, spots are limited. In an effort to be as equitable as possible in our registration process, we will open a window for families to complete a CAMP INTEREST FORM from March 15 - 25. Completing the form does NOT guarantee a spot at the camp but does ENTER YOUR STUDENT into a registration lottery. We will lottery the available spots based on a tiered system and notify families by April 1. Those students not selected in the initial lottery will be placed on a waitlist and offered spots as they become available. Families will be allocated spots together. We expect students from all tiers to be offered spots. Students MUST be available for the entirety of camp to participate. Available spots will be lotteried based on the following tiers: Tier 1 - Campers wait-listed last year Tier 2 - Returning campers Tier 3 - New campers All students must complete a CAMP INTEREST FORM by March 25 to be considered for a spot.
