August 1, 2010

Dear Upshur County Community:
It is hard to believe that another summer is coming to an end and that the 2010-2011 school year will be here in a few short weeks. On behalf of the Upshur County Board of Education, I welcome you to the new school year.

Please be advised that the first day of school for students, grades kindergarten through twelve, will be Monday, August 23, 2010 (this will be a full day of instruction). School buses will be running their regular schedules. Breakfast and lunch will be available at all schools. Parents of students attending pre-kindergarten centers should contact the individual center for first day attendance information.

Parents/guardians of any new students to Upshur County Schools who have not yet enrolled should do so at their prospective schools. Due to varying staff development and meeting schedules of school personnel, it is advisable to call the school ahead of your visit.

Again, welcome to a new school year. We are truly excited to begin!
