Students will return to school at the direction of Governor Justice and the WV Department of Education. All teachers and staff will be reporting for work on Monday to assist with preparations of student food service options, to develop and communicate classwork expectations to parents and students, as well as, to complete ongoing deep cleaning efforts within our schools. More specific guidelines will be communicated using the automated calling system, the Upshur County Schools website and Facebook site.
In addition, based on directives from the WV Secondary Schools Athletic Commission (WVSSAC) all school-related athletic programs are not permitted to practice or compete until further notice. The WVSSAC will consider restoration on April 10th. In addition, no community group activities will be permitted in school facilities until further notice. We appreciate your patience as this situation is constantly evolving.
