The Potomac Current

About The Current

Welcome to the The Current!
The Current is the student news site of The Potomac School, located in McLean, Virginia. The Current was founded in 1993 and has been publishing  important news and information for our students, faculty, staff, and community continuously since then. When The Potomac School transitioned to distance learning during the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the editors, advisers, and administrators came together to effect a transition from a print newspaper to an online paper. We chose the SNO platform and are grateful for the extensive support we’ve received from SNO that has allowed us to be up and running in a very short period.  Our online paper, which is delivered through a web browser, a phone browser, and an Iphone or Android app, allows us to continue reaching students with compelling content that is frequently updated. We will also offer to our students an opportunity to submit their opinions and creative work for consideration for publication. Especially during this period of distance learning, we believe that The Current may serve to strengthen our connections to our school and each other through articles that are informative and engaging. When we come back to campus, we will continue to publish both an online and a print newspaper.
