Welcome to Taylor County Schools

Dear Families and Sudents,

The COVID-19 virus has caused many adjustments in our daily lives since March 13, 2020. Cancellation of school in our buildings, spring sports and a need to delay graduation for our very deserving class of 2020 are just a small example of activities impacted. Decisions have not been easy and many outside agencies including local health departments and state level departments have been consulted.

One rite of passage for high school students is the annual Prom. It is with deep regret, that based on the Harrison County Health Department as well as guidance from our own and other local health departments, the Governors orders and the WV DHHR we will not be able to hold the 2020 Prom. Social distancing, and the need to keep total numbers of 25 or under in an enclosed space led us to this cancellation. There are no venues allowing gatherings such as Prom or weddings in our area.  Plans are being considered for a way to hold something in the Fall to try and replace this activity in some manner.

The next few weeks will also allow us to close out this school year officially for all students. The central office staff, school administrators and school leadership teams have met to put together a plan that will be shared with families in the coming days. This schedule will show when belongings can be picked up and textbooks and other items belonging to the schools turned in for the year. We will continue the food drive thru on Tuesdays through June 2 as well as the learning activities.

School year 2019-2020 is one for the history books. However, the support of our students, families and school personnel has been phenomenal. It has taken all of us to accomplish what we have and truly proves why Taylor County is Taylor County Strong! Thank you for your continued support and may you and your family continue to be healthy and safe.

Warm regards,

Christy Miller, Superintendent
