Attention Parents of 7th and 12th Graders: Pocahontas County Schools would like to inform/remind you that all 7th and 12th graders will be required to show proof of two important immunizations prior to school entry. These include Tdap and meningococcal vaccines, which protect against vaccine-preventable diseases such as bacterial meningitis and pertussis. Please make sure that your 7th and/or 12th grader has received and provided documentation of these immunizations prior to the start of the school year. If you don’t get the immunizations before the first day of school, then students will be denied entry. You can go to your primary care physician or the Pocahontas County Health Department (if you don't have a primary care physician or if they don't carry the vaccine).

What do teachers do on a Saturday in February? Kindergarten through second grade teachers, along with Title I teachers, throughout Pocahontas County worked together to learn about a new professional learning protocol - The Lesson Study Model. Dr. Andrea Lemon, West Virginia Department of Education, facilitated the learning as the grade level groups established norms, brainstormed focus areas, as well as the case pupils. We are excited to move to this approach of professional learning. This opportunity is funded through a grant awarded from the West Virginia Public Education Collaborative (WVPEC) and the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.
