School Safety

We want to take this opportunity to assure you that safety plans are in place at all of our schools and that we will continue to be diligent in our efforts to maintain a safe, caring and productive learning environments for our students and staff. Our efforts to maintain safe schools are multi-faceted and include, but are not limited to:

  • Positive behavior interventions and support programs;
  • School counseling services;
  • Establishing Prevention Resource Officers (PROs) in each of our secondary schools; 
  • Safe School Plans and preparedness training.

We would also like to take this opportunity to remind you that in the event of an emergency, phone messages will be sent to parents through our SchoolMessenger Notification System. This automated calling system enables us to send emergency voice notifications to parents within minutes --school or district wide. Please remember to notify the school if you change your phone number during the school year so that it can be updated in our system. Please assist us in our efforts to maintain safe schools by stressing to your child the importance of informing you or school staff whenever he/she has information related to the safety of students and/or staff. You may report a threat or rumor of a threat by calling your school administration directly, the Board of Education at 304-675-4540, or the West Virginia State Police at 304-675-0850. All threats to the safety of our students are taken seriously.

We appreciate your ongoing support for our school system and want to thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as our principals and staff implement and enforce school safety procedures at each of our schools. Working together, we can ensure that the educational process continues in the safe, caring, and uninterrupted environment that our children deserve.

Parent Advice on Social Media

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) recently released findings from a comprehensive study on the impact social media has on kids and families. Although there are real benefits to kids using sites like Facebook, including increased communication, access to information and help in developing a sense of self, there can be serious downsides to all this online sharing too.

Social networking is on the rise, and the study found that 22 percent of teenagers log onto their favorite social media sites more than 10 times a day, and that 75 percent own cell phones. This level of engagement online increases the risks of cyberbullying, “Facebook depression” (a new phenomenon where “de-friending” and online bullying lead to symptoms of depression), exposure to inappropriate content, and sexting.

Just as we prepare our kids for life in the real world, we should prepare them for life in the online world. Read on for tips that every parent should keep in mind.
