School Officials one step closer to resuming school

The Colonial Beach School Board voted unanimously at their work session Jan. 8 to begin preparations to resume classes for Pre-K through grade 5 at the Oak Grove Baptist Church.

School officials received offers from several non-profits, neighboring school systems, and Riverboat on the Potomac as well to house the students temporarily. The best option presented to the school board was the Oak Grove Baptist Church which already has exactly the number of needed classrooms available.

Four options were presented by school staff to the school board, Oak Grove Baptist Church - the old King George Middle School, utilizing multiple locations around town or holding staggered classes at the High School on First Street.

King George Middle School has been vacant for almost six years and would require a great deal of preparation to be utilized again. The options of splitting the children to utilize multiple locations would cause too much disruption for children and staff and staggered classes would cost a considerable amount of money to implement and school officials feared it would generally disrupt family life.

Details will be presented by the school as the new location is prepared and a date to return to school is established. Instructions for drop off and pick up will be provided to parents as they are worked out. Preliminary discussions leaned towards a pick up and drop off point at the High School on First Street for walkers and students whose parents normally drop their children off at school. From there children would be transported to the Oak Grove Baptist Church. There was no indication that normal bus routes would be disrupted. However no official decision has been made so keep tuned to local news and watch for instant alerts and/or letters sent home with more details.
