As Gov. Ralph Northam announced today that all Virginia public and private schools will be closed for the remainder of the academic year, we want to know how you are impacted by this decision as a parent/guardian, student or a teacher.

If you’d like to share your thoughts and personal impact from the school closure for a story, email The Winchester Star education reporter Anna Merod at amerod@winchesterstar.com.

I thank nxt year school year they should do a graduation for this kids who worked hard this year and earned it. Still give them one as well so have 2 graduation in 1 year. Do one one month and the new ones the follwing monthπŸ˜€ its only fair.

Is there any way school children in our community who don't have access to computers can get their assignments from teachers?

It’s hard. We are worried about our students. For a HUGE variety of reasons TBH. It was so sudden with no warning. This isn’t a vacation for ANY of us. It’s beyond stressful.

I have a 2nd grader and 6th grader but more worried about the seniors who won’t see their graduation

I know there are some ideas being discussed. Contact your local school office. If you cannot reach a person leave s message or show up at one of the food distribution points and ask.

Devastating to my kindergartener, who’s heartbroken she won’t get to finish the year. Everything you ever needed to know you learned in kindergarten, right?

Why can’t they at least postpone graduation for our senior

Since there are no school in use, a 60% tax break is in order!

Graduation.....is all I can comment is what about our seniors graduation? As parents we are so sad....but as the mom of a senior...this is devestating

You don't have to wait on the school system to hold a graduation...once the restrictions are lifted hold a community graduation, Caps, and Gowns and all. It would be a way to show a coming together...

They should reschedule graduation for all these seniors and also the prom because these girls have already brought dresses and just look they would be missing😒😒😒😒😒

I think they should be a way to do graduation even if it is late they deserve it and so do parents

I think classes should be online

How was i impacted? Well It gave me an immediate $hit cramp and doubled me over

It's no Spring break and emailing a deploma to is not even a option, folks this is not funny and yes I have a senior

Why calling it so early? Why can’t they continue to cancel in 2 week intervals?

I have 8 kids in my household πŸ™

Emailed!

Sounds like on hell of a spring break
