Upshur County Schools

Student Services

All Upshur County schools utilize Blackboard, an automated calling system that allows schools to connect with parents and keep them informed. Parents will be reached through phone calls receiving up-to the minute information, including attendance notification and emergency information.


Blackboard is automatic, so parents do not need to sign up for the service. The only requirement is for parents to keep their phone numbers and contact information up-to date with the school office. Blackboard is driven by the district’s student information database.


Attendance calls delivery time:

  • Elementary Schools –approximately 10:00 am
  • Buckhannon Upshur Middle School and Buckhannon Upshur High School-approximately 10:00 am and 6:00 pm
