This is a special notification: Surry County Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 to allow faculty and staff an opportunity to attend the funeral services of Dr. Clarence P. Penn, retired superintendent of Surry County Schools. Dr. Penn served as superintendent of schools in Surry County from 1977 to 1997 and was a well-respected educator and leader throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia and the country. Although closing schools on just the second day of the new school year is unusual, the Surry County School Board and the administration believe that it is necessary to allow faculty and staff an opportunity to pay their last respects to Dr. Penn, a noted educator and community leader. Your understanding and support of this decision is appreciated. Again, Surry County Public Schools will be closed on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 in recognition of the passing of retired superintendent of schools, Dr. Clarence P. Penn. Schools will reopen on Thursday, September 8th. Thank you.
