Windsor Elementary to share space with Carrsville students

Published 6:38 pm Saturday, November 5, 2016


The damage caused by a recent fire at Carrsville Elementary School has put the faculty and students out of their classrooms.

“Beginning Monday, Nov. 7, Carrsville Elementary students will attend Windsor Elementary School as repairs are finalized to the building from a fire that occurred early Wednesday morning, Nov. 2,” Lynn Briggs, spokeswoman for Isle of Wight County Schools, stated in a press release.

She added that a plan had been developed to accommodate the two schools on a temporary basis.

The fire was apparently caused by an electrical short in a computer that was plugged into a hallway outlet; this took place at approximately 2:30 a.m.

Parents learned of the arrangements details via the Connect 5 Alert System. The information can also be found at the school and division’s websites (;

Buses will run as usual, however, families should expect some delay in their students returning home.

Carrsville students will not dismiss until 4 p.m. while at Windsor Elementary. This is a change from the normal dismissal procedure. Parents who pick up their child for dismissal while at Windsor will have to come in to the atrium, sign your child out, and wait for them by the library.

Kangaroo Kids will be open for before and after-school care during this time and located in the Windsor Elementary gym.

We appreciate the patience and understanding of both Carrsville and Windsor Elementary families during this time,” Briggs said. “We will provide an update early next week on the projected day for returning to Carrsville Elementary School.”
