In light of the ongoing fire department investigation into a malfunctioning motor in a hot water heater at Meridian High School, we have several updates regarding school activities and the retrieval of personal belongings. All activities scheduled at the school for tonight, including basketball games and the 9th grade Info Night, are canceled. Additionally, students will not be permitted to re-enter the building this evening. For students who left belongings in the hallway, auditorium, or elsewhere throughout the building, these items will be secured tonight and can be picked up tomorrow morning in the cafeteria. We assure you that all left items will be secured this evening by FCCPS staff once the building is returned to school officials, ensuring their safety and security. While activities at our school are canceled, the Wrestling match at Yorktown will proceed as planned. We thank you for your understanding and cooperation during this time and will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available. FCCPS Communications

Due to the closure of the Meridian High School building by the Fire Marshal after smoke was detected, students will not be permitted re-entry, and as a result, may be without their laptops and other personal belongings. Addressing this issue will be a priority for us, but at the moment, ensuring the safety of our students is our foremost concern. We will provide further information on retrieving personal items as soon as it is safe to do so.
