On Monday, March 30, Governor Northam issued a "stay at home" order and all schools will be closed until further notice.
The school division will provide a grab and go service for meals at Fallon Park Elementary, Round Hill Elementary, Patrick Henry High School, and William Fleming High School from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. If you cannot visit any of these sites the Governor asks that you call 2-1-1.
If you have any questions, please call the school at 540-853-6040 and your call will be returned within 24 hours.

Dear Students,

I hope you are well! School is so lonely without you in the building!

I welcome your e-mails and please send me stories that you write. I would love a new poem, song lyrics, or maybe a story. Study Island is the main work that I want you to finish during this virtual learning experience.
