Smithsburg High School should have a new boiler in place before winter arrives. The boiler contract, as well as one for custodial supplies for the school system, were approved unanimously as part of the consent agenda during the June 7 meeting of the Washington County Board of Education.

Work will begin immediately to install security fencing, replace a boiler and make handicap-accessible improvements at Boonsboro High School. The Washington County Board of Education voted unanimously July 12 to approve the consent agenda, which included the projects. With school starting Aug. 24, contractors are expected to begin immediately on the boiler, and the other work will begin as soon as proper bonds are secured, according to presentation documents. The fencing is being installed as a security measure to help keep students on school grounds and keep nonschool personnel off school grounds, said Rob Rollins, director of facilities planning and development.
