Stafford High School Update
As of 4 p.m. on Friday, August 28, 2015, the general contractor (Hess)†failed to meet requirements for temporary occupancy of part or all of the new Stafford High School and the planned move of the administrative offices has been delayed until early next week. Stafford County's Code Compliance Office has extended every effort in support of this project and is committed to continue to do so until the contractor meets the requirements for temporary occupancy.

In order to provide a†positive educational experience for our students in a finished building, we have determined to delay the start of school for Stafford High School students until Monday, September 14, 2015. Instructional plans are being explored in the event that students must make up the time missed during this first week.† These options may include making up the time during the second semester, requesting a waiver from the Commonwealth and/or providing on-line opportunities for classroom instruction.

Teachers and staff will have access to the building as soon as temporary occupancy is achieved.† Teachers will work from home during teacher work week (August 31-September 4) until access to the building is possible.† If the division staff are able to accelerate the moves to earlier dates, it will be done and information on any changes will be sent out to the community using a variety of media.

The Freshman Orientation and Open House scheduled for Thursday, September 3, will now be held on Thursday, September 10, 2015.† The freshman orientation will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.† The Open House will be held on September 10 with Seniors and Juniors arriving from 4:30 to 6 p.m. and 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 September 10 will be dependent upon access to the spaces within the school.

Further details regarding instruction during the first week of school will be shared next week.† Stafford High School parents and students please see the school website for updates.
