Marion Senior High School Student Wins State Science Poster Contest

Marion Senior High 11th grader Brooklyn Starkey is the statewide winner of the VAST Poster Contest for 9-12 graders. VAST is the Virginia Association of Science Teachers. Brooklyn's artwork will be displayed at the Virginia Association of Science Teachers Conference in Williamsburg in November. Her artwork will be also featured on the VAST website, in the VAST Science Educator newsletter, and will serve as the cover for the VAST Professional Development Institute Book. The theme for the poster contest was "the faces of science in Virginia," and Brooklyn chose endangered species from each region of Virginia to illustrate that theme.

Smyth County Students Can Get Free Flu Shots in October

The Mount Rogers Health District and Smyth County Public Schools will offer free flu shots to Smyth County students during October. In order for your child to receive a shot, please complete this parental consent form and return it to your child's school by Sept. 23.

Note that the flu nasal spray will not be available this year. The federal Centers for Disease Control have advised that the nasal spray will have limited effectiveness during the 2106-2017 flu season; therefore only flu shots will be available this year.

Smyth County Schools Health Department Provides Info on Flu and Cold Prevention

The Smyth County Schools Health Department has published information on protecting your child from flu and colds this season.

Back-to-School Notifications

The Code of Virginia requires local school divisions to make a variety of information available to the public. Much of that information is already included in the Student Handbook or through links or postings on this website. Here are links to recently added information:

Public Service Announcement Regarding Stopped School Buses

Recently, Smyth County Public School bus drivers have reported an increase in the number of vehicles illegally passing stopped school buses. As a school division, we are committed to ensuring the safety of our students. We are asking our community to share this commitment. We would like to remind our community members that all motorists are required to stop when a school bus is loading or unloading children. All of our drivers are required to complete a pre-trip inspection to ensure all safety devices are working properly. All motorists should be aware that in the event these safety devices are not functioning, you are still required to stop when a bus is loading or unloading children. Drivers are required by state law to stop in all directions when the red lights on the bus are flashing and/or the stop sign is out unless they are travelling on a divided highway. There are penalties for failure to stop for a stopped school bus. Penalties may include:

Our students are our most precious resource, and we take the responsibility of ensuring their safety seriously. Central Office staff, school administrators and bus drivers work together to coordinate our bus stops and have as many students as possible load and unload on the passenger door side of the road. This is not always possible and as a result, some students actually have to cross the road when they are loading and dismissing from the school bus. When a bus is stopped and its red lights are flashing, a child could potentially have to cross the road in front of traffic. Please consider all of the above mentioned safety rules to ensure the safety of our students.
