Augusta County: Save Our Schools (SOS) takes battle to yard signs

 A number of Save Our Schools (SOS) yard signs sprouted overnight at homes and businesses throughout the Fishersville area of Augusta County. This one was on Rt. 608 near many Fishersville neighborhoods.

Save Our Schools, made up of parents, teachers, and concerned citizens, organized earlier this month when it was learned that Craigsville Elementary and Shenandoah Valley Governor's Schools could be on the chopping block. In December 2011 the Augusta County School Board voted to close Ladd Elementary School.

Supporters plan to attend the upcoming Augusta Board of Supervisors on Wednesday, February 22, at 7:00. The meeting will be held at the Augusta County Government Center in Verona.
