REMINDER: December 16 Public Meeting on Re-interment of 12th High School Graves

December 16 Public Meeting Scheduled on Re-interment of 12th High School Graves

The Prince William County School Board will meet to hear public comments on plans for reinterring artifacts and remains from graves discovered during clearing for the county’s 12th high school, now set for completion in 2016.  

The meeting will be held at 7 p.m., December 16, 2013, at the Board Meeting Room of the Edward Kelly Leadership Center, 14715 Bristow Road in Manassas.  

Archaeologists and others have completed study of the fragmentary remains from graves previously hidden beneath trees and brush that had grown for decades.  Insights and historical information will be presented so local residents can weigh in on appropriate ways to recognize and reinter the historic discoveries. 

Those wishing to address the School may:

-- Notify the Board Clerk in writing at P.O. Box 389, Manassas, VA 20108; by phone at 703.791.8709; or by email at prior to noon on the day of the Board meeting to be placed on the list of speakers; or

-- Sign onto the list of speakers maintained at the entrance to the School Board meeting room at the beginning of the meeting, but prior to 6:55 p.m. on the evening of the meeting.

Please provide your name, address, phone number.  In keeping with Board policy, all registered speakers will receive three minutes to present their views, which will be considered in subsequent Board deliberations.
