TES... Our school is partnering with the WVWC Alpha Xi Delta Chapter to collect items for those folks displaced by the recent fire on Main Street. Please send in essential items such as toiletries, non-perishable food items, towels, and kitchen utensils if you would like. You can bring items to school for pick up or drop them off at WVWC's library, CCE, or Chapel Lobby. Thank you.
TES... TES will be holding a Halloween Party for students on Friday, October 29, at 2:15 pm. Guests will only be permitted if Upshur County is green, yellow, or gold on the daily Covid-19 map. Board policy mandates that masks are required for all students, staff, and visitors if the county is orange or red, and at TES the precedent has been set that if we are orange or red, large groups of visitors are not permitted in the building during school hours. Therefore, we will determine if guests are permitted based on the color map. Please make sure your phone receives the school texts or that you are able to access the Parents of Tennerton Facebook page or tes.upshurschools.com for updates. Should the county fall in the green, yellow, or gold categories, we will encourage mask wearing from our visitors, although they will not be required per board policy. This year students and staff are permitted to wear costumes to celebrate the holiday. Please follow the guidelines listed below for costumes: 1. No weapons or props that could depict violent acts. 2. Students may wear face paint, but no masks. The only masks permitted are the ones students wear to mitigate the spread of Covid-19. 3. Costumes should not depict any gore or evidence of violence. 4. Costumes should not depict any drug or alcohol references. 5. Costumes should provide appropriate coverage.
TES... Our school once again raised the most money for Coins for Cancer. This year our students raised nearly $390.00, which is around 1/3 of the county total! Great job to our families for supporting this cause.

TES Family... Beginning Monday, March 1, students will have a new arrival plan to begin the day. As students enter the building, they will immediately report to one of three designated locations (to help maintain our mitigation efforts). Grades K/1 will report to the cafeteria. Grades 3/4/5 will report to the gymnasium. Grade 2 will report to the front hallway. Students will sit with their classes to maintain that cohort. Breakfast will still be served as it has been this year. Dismissal to classrooms will be at 7:45. This plan is subject to change. Thank you.

Press Release February 25, 2021 Upshur County Schools Upshur County Schools Re-Entry Plan Update Upshur County School stakeholders met virtually on Thursday, February 25, to proactively plan for the return to in-person instruction. The West Virginia Department of Education (WVDE) advised that Upshur County students return to in-person learning either four days per week with a 3:15pm dismissal time, or five days per week with a 2:00pm dismissal time. Upshur County School stakeholders are collecting survey results from school employees regarding the approach that will best support students. The Upshur County Board of Education will meet in emergency session on Monday, March 1 at 1:30pm to discuss the stakeholder data. Upshur County Board of Education Vice-President, Katie Loudin, said, “At this time, students will return to school on Monday, March 1st, four days per week with a 2:00pm dismissal, as voted on February 23. We anticipate an adjustment to this schedule after the emergency board meeting scheduled for March 1, 2021.” Dr. Tammy Samples, Upshur County Board of Education President, said, “We are disappointed that we must modify our waiver request; however, we are working together to do what is best for our students, their families, and our employees.”
