St. Clairsville Schools Community,
We received notification on Monday, March 30th, that Governor DeWine has extended the order mandating that all schools in Ohio be closed through Friday, May 1st. During this time all extracurricular activities are suspended. This includes but is not limited to practices, competitions, meetings, dances and performances. In addition, all school facilities will remain closed, except to essential personnel.
Our staff is continuing to work extremely hard to provide academic access to all students in the district. We have established partnerships with several organizations to provide drive-up wireless internet access. Those organizations and instructions on login procedures were posted yesterday. We are meeting daily to discuss, analyze and address any issues that arise. We know this is a difficult time for our students, their families, and our staff. Please know that we will make every effort to do all we can to assist everyone. The building administrators will be posting specific information on assignment procedures and grading for the closure period.
We are blessed with an outstanding community and I have been taken aback by the amount of support from our local businesses, family members, community members, staff and students. Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!
Yours in Education,
Dr. Walter E. Skaggs
Superintendent of Schools
