TAZEWELL, VA (WOAY) – With the Governor’s recent decision to close schools for the remainder of the year there are many questions that have not been answered at this time.

“Students are our top priority and we are going to do everything we can do to meet the needs of our students We will update everyone as soon as we have received guidance from the state level,” said Tazewell County Public Schools Superintendent, Dr. Christopher B. Stacy. “We will work through this one step, one day, and one issue at a time. I feel confident in Dr. Stacy’s leadership,” added School Board Chairman, David Woodard.
