Students in Augusta County and Staunton public schools are in class today, one of the last snow makeup days after the long, rough winter of 2013-14.
It’s Memorial Day, a time to pause and remember and honor America’s military members who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our country. Let’s hope all schools who are in session on this sacred day will pause for students to remember and honor those who died protecting their freedoms, a reminder for our young people of the importance of this day. Perhaps local veterans have been invited to share experiences of serving alongside those who died.
Waynesboro public schools are closed in observance of Memorial Day.
