Poquoson in the news...
 
     Five things we learned this week in high school football

1. The Lafayette-Poquoson showdown still holds weight.

Poquoson’s 20-0 loss to Smithfield last week prevented the Islanders from heading into their matchup against Lafayette unbeaten.

With a win in that game and their 28-17 win Friday against Bruton, the Islanders would have rolled into their showdown with the Rams still undefeated. Yet thanks to this week’s comeback win (Bruton outscored Poquoson 17-14 in the first half), their clash against Lafayette still means something.

Poquoson and Smithfield stand at 6-1 in the Bay Rivers District, trailing only Lafayette, which is 7-0 in the district and has already beaten Smithfield. If the Islanders can pull off the upset against the Rams next Friday at Poquoson Middle School, these three teams probably will be tied atop the BRD.

2. A handful of teams are living on the edge (of the playoffs).

3. Heritage is taking advantage of its weak late-season schedule.

4. Phoebus wins a turnover battle against Gloucester.

5. Tabb will not end the season without a win.

     Poquoson rallies past Bruton

Poquoson 28, Bruton 17: The host Panthers (2-6, 1-6 Bay Rivers) surprisingly outscored the Islanders 17-14 in the first half, but Poquoson (7-1, 6-1) eventually wore them down for a road victory.

Poquoson began the week ranked first in Region 2A, while Bruton was sixth.

     In Poquoson, figures for enrollment, costs of school consolidation higher than expected

The city’s years of diminishing school enrollment are a leading factor in why the board is talking consolidation. A projection presented to the board at its meeting Tuesday shows enrollment getting close to the highest the city ever saw in 2006.

The Weldon Cooper Center at the University of Virginia anticipates enrollment in Poquoson schools will increase to 2,571 by 2027, up from the current enrollment of 2,139. The functional capacity of the schools this school year is 2,694, leaving a gap of 555 students. At the schools’ peak enrollment in 2006, there were 2,602 students, and since then, enrollment has generally declined.

The board members agreed that if the enrollment projections held true, they did not want the city to realize it made a mistake 10 years from now and have to consider reopening or building a new school.

The other figures that surprised the board and Superintendent Jennifer Parish were the projected costs of the five consolidation scenarios. Estimates that the board considered conservative projected the five consolidation scenarios would cost a minimum of $22.3 million and at most $28.5 million.

Jennifer Mosteller, another board member, said spending this much money on schools wouldn’t leave the city much room to do other capital projects. She also said that it may be easier to address issues at one school than undertake a scenario requiring work in multiple places.

Over the summer, the School Board and City Council toured Poquoson Middle School, which has some of its original structure from the 1930s. Board member Wayne Holcomb said he walked out of that tour thinking the school should be closed. Looking at the numbers Tuesday, he said he was not sure anymore.
