WJCC schools release reopening options

Williamsburg-James City County schools division has released a comprehensive plan of options regarding the reopening of schools called Return to Learn: Forward WJCC Schools. It can be accessed here. 

This multi-tiered plan details remote, blended and on-site avenues by which the school division is considering reopening. All options have been developed under guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the health department and the Virginia Department of Education.

The school division says it has yet to decide which path it will take to reopen. That decision is due by Aug. 5.

Regardless of which option is chosen to start the school year — the division says plans are subject to change based on current circumstances — one option will allow students to choose 100-percent virtual learning for the entire year. 

Parents who wish to take advantage of this option must notify the school division by July 24 and complete this registration form

Families are asked to check the Return to Learn website often for posted updates.

A letter from Deelyn

Dear Ford’s Colony neighbor, 

I hope this letter finds you and your family safe and well. I have fielded many questions from my fellow Ford’s Colony residents regarding the effects of Covid-19 on our neighborhood’s real estate values. Let me share a few thoughts about that, in case you are wondering the same thing.

You might be surprised to learn that March actually was a record-setting month for Liz Moore and Associates – our 108 sales was a 60-percent increase from March 2019! At the onset of the pandemic, we were fortunate to pivot quickly and adapt safe practices so that almost all of our pending sales closed. April took an expected dip, but May rebounded well beyond our expectations – 95 sales overall, or 10 percent more than May 2019. June also is off to a great start.

That said, we have never seen the inventory of available homes in Ford’s Colony at such low levels. Sellers have been slow to put their homes on the market, but buyer demand remains very strong largely due to historically low interest rates. So if you are considering selling, NOW is the time to take action. Home values are rising in this hot market and show no sign of slowing.

If you are curious about your home’s current value, I can help.

I’d love to set aside 15 minutes to meet or talk with you to explore your specific situation, and to see whether taking advantage of this seller’s market makes sense for you at this time. There is no cost or obligation, of course. 

Please call (757-503-1999) or email me (deelyn@lizmoore.com) if I can be of service in any way. 

Thank you, and best regards!

Deelyn

Cheers to Williamsburg’s breweries

Locals know one of the great things about life in Williamsburg is the booming craft brewery scene, especially now that operations have been able to loosen up a bit in Virginia’s recovery. 

Collectively, they offer fun beer gardens, taprooms, awesome street-food, full-menu dining rooms, wines and craft cocktails, guest beers, music, trivia and, of course, dozens of their own year-round and seasonal creations sure to delight sippers to aficionados.

Here’s a brief rundown on our brewery biz. All have hung in during these tough times. Why not stop by one on this Williamsburg Wednesday, or any day at all, and sample from among the huge varities of beer – curbside pickup or on-site – that they are proud to provide to our community.

Please check the breweries’ respective websites (linked below) for operating hours and other pertinent information. 

Cheers!

Virginia Beer Company

401 Second St. 757-378-2903

Opened in 2014, Virginia Beer was co-founded by College of William & Mary buddies who brought in an award-winning brewmaster from Atlanta. The brewery boasts two production systems and a 2,000 square-foot taproom in a former auto shop.

Brasscannonbrewing.com

Brass Cannon bills itself as a veteran-owned brewery and tap room focused on producing classic beers and rotating small-batch options. It doesn’t distribute its beer, so the brewery is the only place to sample Brass Cannon’s offerings.

Alewerks Brewing Company

189 Ewell Rd. 757-220-3670

Alewerks.com

Founded in 2006, Alewerks is a craft-brewing pioneer that is still going strong. Alewerks also operates an off-site tasting room – what it calls its L.A.B. (Little Auxiliary Brewery) – at the Williamsburg Prime Outlets on Richmond Rd.

Located at a marina near the Colonial  Parkway and the Jamestown Settlement, site of America’s first beer, Billsburg says it meticulously creates ales, lagers and pilsners that celebrate our country’s rich brewing history. 

The market is hot!

Wow! Take a look at these numbers for just the last week!

The Williamsburg housing market is BUSY! Re-sale inventory is at record low levels. If you have considered selling your home in Ford’s Colony, NOW is the time to list as values are on the rise.

Please call or text me at 757-503-1999 if I can help you or answer any questions. I’m right down the street. — Deelyn
