Government Shutdown, Valley School Impact

Harrisonburg -- Harrisonburg City Schools will soon feel a big impact from the shutdown of the federal government if an agreement isn't made soon.

“Programs like free and reduced lunch and breakfast are at the highest risk” said Dr. Scott Kizner, superintendent of Harrisonburg City Schools.

Dr. Kizner says the school has enough funds to keep the reduced lunch program running through October, but will have to make cuts after. Harrisonburg City Schools uses $1.8 a year for it's school lunch program.

Special education programs will continue because the district is using money from last year's grants.
