New building/renovations: Shawn Snyder, principal of Fredericksburg and Holmesville schools, wrote in an email that Holmesville "suffered substantial damage during the derecho storm in June," with portions of the roof being ripped off and some interior damages left behind. Repairs — including the addition of some new technology, ceiling tiles and flooring — were completed over the summer so the building could be opened for the new school year.
