Parents, two days before school started we realized that our enrollments in 6th grade put our class sizes above the recommended capacities. The board was gracious enough to give us an additional 6th grade teacher to reduce class sizes, so please bear with us as we rebalance our social studies classes. That new certified teacher will be approved at the Sept. 28 board meeting. In the mean-time, we have a certified sub filling the position as we reduce class sizes.
All staff, students and visitors will remain masked on all buses and facilities as Taylor County remains red on the WVDHHR map as of today, September 12, 2021. Exceptions include eating, recess and outdoors.
Date Correction: The news article yesterday had an incorrect date for March early release. It should be March 2nd, not March 6th.
This morning marks 20 years since that first plane flew in to the World Trade Center and started two decades of warfare for our nation. Staff, parents, and teachers please take a moment to reflect upon this 20th anniversary of 9/11. The first plane hit at 8:46 am. The second hit at 9:03 am. At 9:37 am the third plane hit the Pentagon. Finally, at 10:03, the fourth plane crashed in a field in Shanksville, PA when the passengers, aware of what was happening and that the plane was most likely headed for the White House, attempted to retake the plane and caused it to crash. This heroic act by the passengers of Flight 93 saved many lives and the heart of our democracy. When we think of that Tuesday morning, please remember the innocent Americans that only intended to go to work and support their families. Also think of the thousands of service men and women that gladly stepped up and gave their lives to defend this nation and right a wrong that was done to us. Despite the many differences we have in this nation, the next morning revealed an America that the world does not often see. A unified juggernaut that can't be stopped when we are together and of one mind. The world learned that day one important lesson: mess around and find out. God Bless America.
