On Wednesday evening, December 9, the Board of Education approved a school closure and boundary adjustment plan. William Winchester Elementary School is one of the schools impacted in the plan.  Please visit the Carroll County Public Schools website at http://www.carrollk12.org/boe/boundaryadjustment/default.asp to review the official notification of the Board’s decision and the final report and recommendation.

We affectionately refer to our school as Willie.
