Welcome to Taylor County Schools

March 27, 2020


We hope you are staying safe and staying home practicing good hand washing hygiene and covering coughs and sneezes. Many questions have come in about how we are continuing to feed our students. We are now working with Project Hope and will be providing six drive thru sites on Tuesday, March 31st from 11-1. The drive thru sites will be located at Black Bear Customs parking lot, the Senior Center, Family Resource Network, Project Hope, Flemington Elementary School, and the gravel lot by Twin Oaks at Tygart Estates. We ask that you limit the number of people coming to pick up your meals as much as possible so we can adhere to social distancing. Please take note that we will update you with additional days and times for the food sites as we move forward.




Dear Families and Students,

Today, Governor Jim Justice stated the school closure would extend until April 20, 2020. This gives us a date to plan for reopening and consider options for continued learning for our students. We know this virus is on the move in West Virginia, and we will begin to put plans together to meet this opening date, understanding it may change again.

Learning has taken many twists and turns over the last two weeks and I look for it to do so once again. I do want to stress that we have met with principals discussing the volume and expectations of work that some students have received to complete for this week. While it is important to support continued learning, we must understand parents are not teachers and consider what is sent home to complete should not require a large amount of support. In the coming weeks, plans will offer opportunities to sustain skills already learned in different formats.There will be time to introduce new skills once we return. Schools will be reaching out to our students to assist and help them understand how the work will be used for completion and grading.

I want to thank you for your continued support of our system. The outpouring of thanks for the delivery of meals and connections to those who prepared them has been tremendous. Taylor County is a very caring and close community and it shows as we continue to support one another through this changing time. Connect with each other however that may be, reach out to those in need, and take care of your families. We look forward to a return soon allowing us to finish strong and united.

Christy Miller

Superintendent
