Upshur Schools resume in-person learning


The state education map released Saturday designates Upshur County Schools current status as yellow for the week. Under the “yellow” status, all schools in Upshur County will return to face-to-face learning, utilizing the two-day blended model for students the week of November 9 – 13, 2020.   In compliance with the guidelines set forth by the West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources for counties in the “yellow” classification, Upshur County Schools will:  

  • Continue student cohorting by limiting exposure outside of core groups. 
  • Limit assemblies or large group activities where social distancing is not possible. 
  • Continue to work with county health officials to determine if increased mitigation and community engagement activities are necessary to prevent escalation of disease. 
  • Require face coverings for grades 3-5 on buses and in congregant settings (outside of core groups) where social distancing cannot be maintained. 
  • Require face coverings for grades 6 and above at all times. 
  • Follow guidelines set forth by the WVSSAC regarding participation in athletic events and competitions. 

Dr. Stankus noted, “We are very excited to finally have our students returning to our classrooms! We look forward to seeing them tomorrow and anticipate an exciting week for everyone! I want to thank our community for staying vigilant and maintaining the safety protocols.”

As we progress through the week, we will keep our families informed and updated if any additional information is made available.
