school news
  • UPDATE from Ast. Superintendent Darren L Cook
    Effective immediately Wetzel County Schools will continue with distance learning through Wednesday, December 2nd, 2020.
    After working with the Wetzel-Tyler Health Department and analyzing our data, I felt it necessary to continue with distance learning instruction to protect our students, staff and communities at large. There will be no extracurricular activities.
    ALL Wetzel County Schools will continue with distance learning Monday November 16th, through Wednesday, December 2, 2020. During this time teachers/ staff will work remotely and NOT report; no extracurricular activities will take place.
    Only essential personnel as deemed by the Superintendent of Schools will report to their facilities.
    To prevent the spread of COVID-19, everyone is urged to follow best health practices as outlined by the CDC, DHHR and the WVDE guidance. This includes: wearing face covering at all times while in the buildings, practicing social distancing, hand washing and cleaning protocols regularly. Families are encouraged to self-isolate as much as possible in order to reduce contagion. Free testing is being provided by the Wetzel-Tyler Health Department in various locations around the county.
    We will continue to provide updates and thank you in advance for your understanding.
    **Parents will receive a phone call this evening concerning the schedule change. **

  • Just a reminder: We are in week two of the 2nd nine weeks. Students please make sure you are keeping up with your work and turning in assignments. Also, it's been two weeks since we've been remote learning. Computers need to be brought to a school parking lot to reconnect to the network for updates every couple of weeks. You can take it to any school parking lot in the county, turn it on, connect to network, allow the updates to download, and the computer is good to go for a few more weeks.
