School Closings & Inclement Weather Procedures

Staff begins making preliminary plans for possible scenarios as soon as meteorologists release somewhat reliable storm information.  The morning of an event, staff begin communicating around 4:00 a.m. and are out checking road conditions by 4:30 a.m.  While checking the roads,  staff also communicate with the Sheriff’s department, the Chief of Fire and Emergency Services, VDOT, and neighboring school divisions.  The goal is to make a decision about a delay or school closing by 6:00 a.m., because some buses are on the road at 6:15 a.m. 

Please know that when making these decisions, student safety is our priority.  These decisions are not made in haste and we do not take this responsibility lightly.  We ask that you be patient with us when we do not make the delay or closing call as early as you would like or when we need to send out multiple SchoolMessenger calls. 

How do I find out if school is closed or schedules change?

First word of any changes can be seen on the King William County Public Schools’ website (www.kwcps.k12.va.us), on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/king.william.777), and Twitter (@kwcps).

HHMS Renovation Project Press Release

During a special meeting of the KWCPS School Board on Friday, November 17th following the Annual School Board Tour, the school board voted to authorize Dr. David O. White, Division Superintendent, to execute the construction contract for the Hamilton Holmes Renovation Project. The contract to be executed will be between KWCPS and Loughridge & Company, LLC after final review from the School Board attorney, Brad A. King of Sands Anderson, PC.  Loughridge was approved as the selected general contractor with a bid of $9,985,000 which was below the initial construction cost estimate of $11.6 million.  The total construction budget for the project was estimated to be approximately $13.2 million.   

The School Board is considering three of five additive items presented to them as part of the construction and renovation project and is seeking to contract with Ballou Justice Upton Architect (BJU) to provide cost estimations and renderings for construction bid options:

  1. HHMS Main Entrance: Install a double entry at the main entry, similar to KWHS. This would ensure everyone must go through the office to gain access to main building.
  2. School Administrative Offices: Demolition of the existing stucco infill at each façade, deteriorated precast concrete window trim elements, existing windows, removal of existing trees that abut front building, and broken and/or deteriorated brick.
  3. Renovation of Existing Boys and Girls Locker Rooms with New Gymnasium Acoustical Panels: Correct the acoustics in the gym to control noise level, reconfigure the locker rooms, and provide renovated restrooms in each locker room.
