New site sought for academy classes

March 03, 2009

WASHINGTON COUNTY -- After Monday's fire that damaged Antietam Academy high school, Washington County Public Schools received 13 or 14 public offers of places the students could use, Deputy Superintendent Boyd Michael said.

Classes at Antietam Academy high school, which is on the same campus as South Hagerstown High School, were canceled Tuesday.

For the time being, classes for the approximately 50 students will be held at South High, Michael said.

Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said school officials hope to decide by Friday where to hold classes the rest of the year.

A Hagerstown Fire Department battalion chief has said Monday's fire was accidentally started by a worker using a soldering torch on a copper pipe.

The damage was described as "significant."
