Stafford High flunks permit test, school postponed a week

© Leesburg Today - 08/28/2015

Stafford High School students will get an extra week of summer vacation because their school won't be ready on the division's first day of the new year.

Freshman orientation and an open house scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 3, will now be held Sept. 10, Stafford County Public School information officer Valerie Cottongim said.

The freshman orientation will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Seniors and juniors attending the open house should arrive from 4:30 to 6 p.m., with sophomores and freshmen arriving from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Freshmen who attend the orientation earlier in the day are not expected to attend the open house that evening as they will have received the information needed. Both of these events on Sept.10 will be dependent upon access to the spaces within the school, Cottongim said.

The postponement is due to the construction firm, Hess, failing to meet requirements for temporary occupancy of part or all of the new Stafford High School.

The planned move of the administrative offices has been delayed until early next week, Cottongim said.
