I hope everyone had a safe and happy holiday season. As we welcome in 2021, Pleasants County Schools will continue to keep student safety our number one priority when decisions are made during this winter in regards to school closings. Pleasants County will provide instruction through “remote learning” for all students if we have to close school due to inclement weather.
The third nine weeks is in full swing. The academic year continues to be a success with each school working diligently in improving instruction, so that every student can reach their full potential in the classroom.
The second dose of COVID vaccines will begin on February 5th for Pleasants County School employees. About 85% of employees who requested vaccines have received the first dose. The plan is to complete the second round in the month of February. If COVID cases remain to stay down and with the second dose of vaccines completed, Pleasants County Schools plans to begin IN-PERSON learning five days a week at the beginning of March.
Winter Sports, which include: Girls and Boys Basketball and Wrestling are set to begin on February 15th with games beginning in March
I encourage parents to stay involved in your child’s education and activities. Thank you for your continued support as we strive to provide the very best education to your children.
Pleasants County Schools is nearing the end of the first nine weeks, which will be October 26th, 2020. Report cards will be sent home with students on November 2nd. Many educational programs continue to be provided throughout our schools. The implementation of the new Apple iPads has been a positive addition. Each school’s curriculum and leadership teams have completed their school’s 2020-2021 strategic plan, which outlines their specific reading/language arts and mathematics goals for this year. Our schools are continuing to guide students academically to reach their full potential with In-Person learning Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, with Wednesday being Remote Learning.
Should the governor or health agencies order full remote learning, each school has developed a plan to ensure learning will continue with little to no interruption.
The Pleasants County Middle School Swimming Pool new Roof and HVAC project is beginning this month- October 2020. Maintenance and renovation of our schools continues to be a top priority and our facilities reflect the great care we take of them.
The 2020-21 school year has begun in a positive manner with everyone following the COVID-19 guidelines and protocol.
