A special message from Dr. Catlett about our School Nurses:

School nurses juggle a complex range of medical and social issues, from communicable diseases, stress and chronic illnesses (diabetes and asthma) to accidents, injuries and school safety.

For some students, the school nurse is the only health care professional they ever see often.

School nurses week, goes beyond the nurse’s office – they interact with teachers, doctors, child study teams, administrators, school counselors, social workers, coaches, partners, police, substance abuse professionals, and other school-related professionals.

We are proud to salute our nurses – you deserve special recognition for your efforts in leading the way for your patients, students and for a healthy nation.
Thank you!

Hugh Mercer Elementary School and Lafayette Upper Elementary School will both be K-5 schools starting in August 2021

The Fredericksburg City School Board on Wednesday night voted to transition Hugh Mercer Elementary and Lafayette Upper Elementary to K-5 schools starting in August 2021, part of ongoing efforts to ease the effects of overcrowding on Fredericksburg students in the short-term as the city continues to plan for a new school.

The plan was recommended by the Fredericksburg City Public Schools Enrollment, Capacity and Expansion Task Force at its April 19 meeting. It is an interim solution intended to improve the learning environment for students much sooner than the three- to five-year timeline a new school will require. This recommendation was vetted and unanimously supported by principals and administrators across the school district before being presented to the School Board.

The plan approved Wednesday will create two K-5 schools that are expected to hold between 850 and 900 students each. This may help reduce the need to add additional trailers to the two campuses in the next 3-5 years. It will also cut the number of homerooms per grade level in each building in half, making it easier for teachers to collaborate for quality education, and for families to be more engaged in school events.
