Gov. Northam issued Executive Order #53 this past week, and in this order he states, “Unnecessary person-to-person contact increases the risk of transmission and community spread.” He has also prohibited all public and private gatherings of 10 or more individuals.
Therefore, beginning today at 5:00 p.m., all KWCPS buildings and facilities will be closed to the public. This closure includes all school buildings and athletic fields and facilities. Only essential school division personnel will have access to buildings and athletic fields and facilities.
This decision was not an easy one; however, in recent days we have had students and/or community members gather on KWCPS property in groups of up to 30 people. We understand the importance of exercise and socialization for the King William community; however, we feel it is our responsibility to do our part in keeping our community safe and to keep COVID-19 from spreading.
