Good evening, Over the last few years, Washington County Public Schools has made the decision to have school on the Martin Luther King Jr. Holiday to ensure our teachers could use the day as a teachable moment. Dr. King's advocacy, tenacity, and action had a huge impact on American History. His leadership led to countless Americans having more liberty, opportunity, and personal freedom. Teaching our students about his legacy is of the utmost importance. Unfortunately due to the Winter Storm Warning in effect for Washington County Virginia, we are going to cancel school on this very important holiday. Based on a forecast prepared specifically for Washington County Schools by AccuWeather for 01/15/2024, we anticipate snow flurries in the early morning and heavy snowfall by lunchtime. Even though it looks like we could get students to school safely in the morning, it appears that getting them home would be much more difficult. Due to the potential for significant snowfall, we will not provide childcare on Monday. I apologize for the inconvenience this causes for working families. If we have to close school for additional days this week, we will do our best to offer childcare for working families. Have a restful evening and feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you, Keith Perrigan, Ed.D. Superintendent Washington County Public Schools 812 Thompson Dr. Abingdon, VA 24210 276-739-3000 @WashCoSuper “Committed to the Success of Every Student

early dismissal
Dear Washington County Families, We wanted to inform you that we there has been a bus incident in the Patrick Henry area of the division. All students on board have been evaluated by medical personnel and no injuries were sustained. Parents of all students involved have been contacted. The safety and security of our students and staff is always our first priority.

important information
Good afternoon, Washington County Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday January 10, 2024. Our WCPS specific Accuweather Forecast gives us reason to believe that we would need to operate on a 2-hour delayed schedule tomorrow. Since a 2-hour early dismissal is already scheduled, adding a 2-hour delay would become a logistical nightmare for students, parents, and staff. I apologize for interrupting your daily routine with this closure, but hopefully the early notification will provide ample time for parents to make arrangements. We will provide free childcare for working parents who are unable to make arrangements for their children. This service is being provided as a result of goals our School Board adopted last summer. All Elementary and Middle Schools will be open tomorrow to serve students whose parents have to go to work and can’t make other arrangements. Be on the lookout for messaging from your school about specific details, hours of operation, etc. Again, I apologize for this inconvenience. Please let me know if you have questions, suggestions, or concerns. Thank you, Keith Perrigan, Ed.D. Superintendent Washington County Public Schools 812 Thompson Dr. Abingdon, VA 24210 276-739-3000 @WashCoSuper “Committed to the Success of Every Student“
