Welcome to Lewis County Schools

News and Announcements


Solar Eclipse County Update:


Lewis County Schools has prepared for the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st. Teachers are sharing resources and planning activities where students will safely experience this unique educational opportunity. For those families wishing to experience this event with their child at home, students may be picked up after 11:30AM and prior to 1:45PM. This will be considered an absence that is excused when a note from the parent or guardian is provided.


Solar Eclipse Information:


This is a reminder that a Solar Eclipse will take place on Monday, August 21, beginning in WV around 1:06 PM and concluding around 3:59 PM.

Most of our schools are planning activities.  No activity will take place outside unless students are equipped with “certified eye protection”.  If you have questions, please contact the school your child attends.

Please be aware that students will be traveling home near the ending time of the Solar Eclipse.  Staff will instruct students not to look at the Solar Eclipse if still visible.  We ask that you reinforce that message at home as well, especially as students are walking home or exiting the bus to walk home.

It is the discretion of parents to pick their child(ren) up early if there is concern and with no consequences.


Proposed Policy Change


The LCBOE is reviewing Policy Chapter 3.60 – Leave Without Cause.  If you wish to make a comment about the proposed changes, you can email Chris Derico at cderico@k12.wv.us.  All comments must be received no later than Friday September 1.


See attached Policy.
