Letter from Central Office Re Lockdown Procedures

Monroe County Schools Superintendent Joetta Basile and Safety Director Angela Mann sent a letter home recently regarding school lockdown procedures.  Please ask your child to see the letter.

Monroe County Schools takes every step to ensure safety at school.  Faculty and Staff have received numerous trainings from law enforcement agencies.

Please note:

If a lockdown occurs during the time frame for student drop off or pick up, you are asked not to enter the building.  As soon as you are made aware of the lockdown, leave the campus to help alleviate confusion and traffic congestion.  Students will be in a locked location under supervision.

Phone calls to the school will not be answered.  Principals and secretaries will be busy with carrying out safety procedures.  Please do not call students on cell phones.  They have been instructed not to use their phones which may add to confusion or alert an intruder.

Adults are requested to refrain from posting to social media which adds to speculation on what is happening.  A message will be sent out from Monroe County Schools as soon as possible to let parents know when the lockdown is lifted.

Please take comfort in the fact that Monroe County Schools is taking every step to ensure your kids are safe when they are on school grounds.

7th Graders visit to Country View Assisted Living

7th grade students in Mrs. Dusold’s Language Arts Class at Peterstown Middle School  read the novel Tuesdays with Morrie written by Mitch Albom. The story is about a young student and his dying professor who spend Tuesdays together discussing life lessons. Throughout the novel, students have completed activities that correlate with the life lessons Morrie talked about in the story. One of the lessons revolves around about devoting yourself to your community and the importance of spending time with others when you are able.

Several students at PMS were chosen to visit Country View Assisted Living to spend time with a resident. The students were given interview questions and spent the afternoon discussing different topics with that person. They were able to provide company to a resident while learning stories about their life. The students really enjoyed the trip. There were tears and laughter as the students listened to the stories of someone they have never met. The students learned many valuable lessons while reading this novel, one of the most important was being kind to others and showing them you care. The students on the trip were respectful and attentive while conducting their interviews.

PMS students and teachers would like to thank Country View Assisted Living for allowing us to visit. We had a great time and cannot wait to come back!

Chromebooks for students- Please contact Bobbie Tuggle (btuggle@k12.wv.us) if you have any questions.
