Parking limited this fall at Jefferson High School

SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - Parents and students are reminded that parking will be limited this fall at Jefferson High School.

Renovation and construction at the school will result in the loss of about one-third of the parking area, according to a release from Jefferson County Schools.

Decisions on priorities for parking spaces will be announced later, the release said.

Lincoln to be added to Frederick school's name

FREDERICK, Md. - The Frederick County Board of Education voted unanimously this month to restore the name "Lincoln" to South Frederick Elementary School. The name change, to Lincoln Elementary School, will be effective with the start of the 2006-07 school year.

One of the two buildings that comprise South Frederick - the "B" building on the south side of Madison Street in Frederick - served as a high school called Lincoln School for Frederick's black students until 1963. At that time, the name was changed.


The request to restore the original name came from the Lincoln Alumni Association and was supported by several speakers during the board meeting.

In the months ahead, school staff will work with the association, students and area citizens to plan and implement an appropriate celebration that involves the entire community.

Families sought for international students

Foundation for Intercultural Travel (FIT), a State Department designated exchange visitor program, is matching international students, ages 15 to 18 with local host families.

Students arrive approximately one week before your school's start date, and bring their own spending money for clothes, entertainment and other expenses. They have their own medical insurance.

Host families agree to provide room and board and to include their student as a family member.

For information about hosting a student, call toll-free, 1-877-439-7862.
