“Sharon Elementary School will be closed Friday, January 27, to address an issue with rodents that have been spotted in the building. We are taking this action out of an abundance of caution to protect the health and well-being of our students and staff.
Keeping the school closed on Friday will allow our maintenance staff to aggressively address the issue and remove the rodents from the building.
AHPS leaders are working closely with the Virginia Department of Health and other regulatory agencies to ensure that proper steps are taken to clean and sanitize the school. Measures will also be taken to prevent further problems with rodents in the future.
It is our hope that we can resume classes at Sharon as soon as possible. We will continue to update families as we move forward with this process.”
