Taylor County Schools

Dear Families and Students,

Taylor County Schools hopes you enjoyed a blessed Thanksgiving with your families and friends. The holiday reminds us of all we have to be thankful for and allows us to enter a season of hope for what is to come. There is nothing like seeing the holidays through a child’s eyes.

As we return to school tomorrow, November 29, 2021, our schools will be operating with masks as a personal choice for our families and staff members. The only exception is on our county buses. We are mandated to keep masks on while transporting students by the CDC.

While it is understood we do not have updated numbers on cases in our county, the WVDHHR has not updated the map since last week. Once the map is updated, if we should turn red, we will immediately return to wearing masks the following school day for 14 days. We urge you to continue to practice and remind your students to wash hands regularly, maintain distance between other students as much as possible and cough or sneeze into the elbow.

Taylor County Schools appreciates your continued support and understanding as we learn to continue to navigate the safest learning environment for our students.

Christy Miller, Superintendent
