WV SMILES ACROSS AMERICA SEALANT PROGRAM
The West Virginia Oral Health Coalition is pleased to announce that we are a recipient of a $20,000 grant focusing on improving children’s oral health. The grant is funded by Oral Health America’s “Smiles Across America”, a childhood sealant program. 
New Lockdown Procedure (A.L.I.C.E.)
Pleasants County Schools has adopted a new strategy for lockdown procedure known as the A.L.I.C.E. plan. A.L.I.C.E. is an acronym for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter, and Evacuate.  Prior to the A.L.I.C.E. plan, lockdown procedures involved the staff locking their doors, moving the students to a part of the room where they could not be seen, and quietly remaining there until an “all clear” announcement was given.  The A.L.I.C.E. plan offers a different philosophy in light of school violence.  The philosophy of A.L.I.C.E. is to use technology and information in a way so that staff and students can make informed decisions in a crisis, remove as many people as possible from the danger zone, and provide realistic training so that those involved in a crisis have a better chance of surviving.

Superintendent's Message - February 2017
I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. It is really hard to believe that it is February 2017 already. The weather has been odd this year with the temperatures being extremely warm or really cold. We will continue to keep our students’ safety our number one priority as decisions are made this winter in regards to school closings. Remember that Pleasants County has ten (10) days built in the school calendar; including Spring Break, before we would have to add days on the end of the 2016-2017 school calendar.

A new grading policy for all Pleasants County Schools is now being used to determine students’ grades for each nine weeks.
