Back to school

It’s that time of year again already and tomorrow will be the first day back to school for select Upshur County students.  The “First Day on Campus” was an idea put into action, as suggested by Upshur Schools stakeholder groups.  Students attending pre-k, kindergarten, sixth and ninth grades will attend school for a half day on Tuesday, August 13.  This “First Day on Campus” will be an early dismissal at 12:30 p.m.    

This will give them opportunity to ride the bus, acclimate to their new school environment, meet with school staff and enjoy their special first day on campus.  These are transition years and it is important for these students to feel comfortable going into their new school setting. Administrators encourage you to allow your new student to ride the bus on the first day of school.  This will help bus drivers to establish their routes and pick up/drop off times. Call the bus garage at 304-472-1544 with questions about your student's bus number and pick up times.

Wednesday, August 14 will be the first full day of school for all students.
