PCS was notified by WV Joint Interagency Taskforce and the WVDE that we will begin the 2nd round of vaccinations this Friday, January 29th. To allow for staff to receive the 2nd round of vaccinations, all Putnam County Schools will operate on a REMOTE LEARNING schedule this Friday, January 29th. This means there will be no In-Person Instruction on Friday. Please plan for Remote Learning via Schoology this Friday, Jan. 29th. A daily meal will be available for pick up on Friday, January 29 from 11-12:30. If you need a meal delivered, please call the school at 304-562-9271 extension 3601 by Wednesday, January 27 at noon. Tomorrow is picture day for all in person children. Please have form completed with payment. Have a great evening.
If your student just switched to Virtual (or In Person), yes they have duplicate classes listed. These will be removed once grades are downloaded and transcripted - hopefully within the next few days. If your child has old meetings on the Teams Calendar, they can right click on the meeting and choose to remove the series. They may have to go through the options to find it.
