COLONIAL BEACH, Va. (WTVR) -- Some students will be bused to a town council meeting in Colonial Beach tomorrow, rallying to get more money for their school.

The former Colonial Beach Elementary School building burnt down after a fire in January. Students are now attending classes in other buildings on site that weren't damaged by the fire.

Parents received a letter sent home from the school to notify them that students were allowed to attend the town council meeting for the budget discussion on Monday.

If the currently proposed budget does move forward, organizers say that cuts could be made to after-school activities and sports.

    This report is incorrect. The students are NOT attending any class on the site as they are being bused to a local church 6 miles away. I think this bit of information should have been included in your report.

    Westmoreland county needs to take control of the school system for Colonial Beach. There were lack of funds way before the school burnt down. The small town of Colonial Beach simply can’t afford there own school system!
