Letter to Parents Regarding the Flu

Dear Parent or Guardian:

We have entered the time of year when we see influenza (flu) and other respiratory viruses at school.  This year, KWCPS has seen an increase in the number of documented cases and we want to let you know what steps we are taking to keep our school community healthy and how you can help.  Our custodial staff is taking additional precautions to ensure that common areas within our schools are properly sanitized to minimize the spread of germs.  And, as always, staff encourages students to regularly wash and/or sanitize their hands to prevent children catching the flu or cold.

Respiratory infections, such as the flu and common cold, are spread when people come in close contact with sick people and inhale airborne droplets, or come in contact with contaminated surfaces.  Flu and cold symptoms can sometimes be difficult to tell apart.  Please review the chart below for a comparison:

KWHS Welcomes Ms. Stephanie Vermeire

Vermeire, S.

Ms. Vermeire is a native of Gloucester County, where she has lived since she was two years old. She attended William and Mary, earning a degree in history and certification for 6-12 Social Studies Education; and she later earned her Masters in Educational Leadership and Administration. She comes to King William with years of experience both in the classroom and as an administrator. Ms. Vermeire enjoys spending time with her family, with whom she remains close, and loves playing with her nieces and nephew. If she's not enjoying time with her family or close friends, Ms. Vermeire can usually be found reading--Jane Eyre and Harry Potter are among her favorites! Ms. Vermeire is a self-described "life-long student" and loves learning new things. She is excited to join the King William family and continue to gain experience and knowledge as part of the KWHS team!

February is School Board Appreciation Month

School Board Members
Please join in recognizing members of the School Board of King William County for their dedicated and tireless service to the students of this county. 

As citizen leaders, school board members face complex and demanding challenges. Their job is to establish a vision for the education program, design a structure to achieve that vision, ensure schools are accountable to the community and strongly advocate continuous improvement in student learning. That job entails an endless string of meetings and school functions to attend; reams of reports, agendas, proposals and other information to read and study; and a host of difficult decisions to make.

We greatly appreciate the hard work that our school board members do in making King William County Schools a great place to learn. 



The HHMS renovation is underway. Construction crews have begun demolition of the school board offices and will then begin the construction of what will be the 6th grade wing. Starting TOMORROW, Wednesday January 24th,  the access road from Rt. 30 to AES will be closed until further notice.  Therefore, all traffic coming to and from AES will need to use Acquinton Church Road.  We realize that this is an inconvenience for our families and we appreciate your patience as we make much needed improvements to the HHMS facility.

New Procedure for Entrance to the King William School Board Offices

When visiting the School Board Office, please use the door entrance in front of the Hamilton-Holmes Middle School Gymnasium.  There is a entry buzzer located on the left side of the brick wall.  

School Board Meetings

The next meeting of the King William County School Board will be held on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 beginning at 6:00 p.m. with a closed session and the regular meeting immediately following. The agenda for this meeting will be available for public view on Saturday, February 17, 2018. To view a copy of the agenda, click here:  http://www.boarddocs.com/vsba/kwcps/Board.nsf

A Preliminary Budget Work Session will be held on Monday, February 5, 2018 at 5:30 p.m. in the Hamilton-Holmes Middle School Library. 

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).
