Rich Valley Elementary students participate in Hour of Code

Smyth County Students Learn Computer Programming

Students from several Smyth County schools learned the basics of computer programming during the international Hour of Code week, Dec. 8-14. Pictured are students from Rich Valley Elementary School participating in an Hour of Code event organized by Smyth County enrichment teacher Melanie Garrett. The goal of the Hour of Code event is to get students interested in computer programming, both as a possible career and a way to develop their critical thinking and reasoning skills. In one of the Hour of Code challenges, students used the Blockly programming language to code a character's path through a maze. In another challenge, they used the Anna and Elsa characters from the movie Frozen to draw geometric figures, such as snowflakes. You can try the same challenges on code.org's website. All Smyth County Public Schools students are also invited to participate in the Smyth County Public Schools Coding Challenge.

Public Service Announcement

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.
