Based on guidance from the West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) and the Marshall County Health Department, school administrators in Marshall County have decided the district will move to a normal, five-day-per-week academic schedule, at Level 1, the first week of March.
For the remainder of this week, Pre-K through 12th graders will attend school for in-person instruction on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be the only remote learning day of the week.
Then beginning on Monday, March 1, 2021, all students, no matter grade level, will be in the classroom every weekday while following a normal schedule. Each Wednesday will feature a 1-hour delay for teacher professional learning communities (PLC).
The Level of Operation can be reversed if there is an increased number of COVID-19 cases in Marshall County. Individual schools or classrooms can be closed if contact tracing and health official guidance warrants that decision.
The high school students’ schedule is still subject to change, at any time, based on the daily WVDHHR County Alert System map.
Marshall County Schools will follow the governor’s order and Marshall County Health Department guidelines as it pertains to personal protective equipment (PPE). Students will be required to always wear face coverings, unless eating or drinking.
Maintenance and custodial staff will do a thorough disinfecting of high touch, high traffic areas throughout the day and buses will be cleaned between routes.
