Superintendent's Message:

Greetings!

State Superintendent Michael Martirano’s visit to Tucker County provided an eventful end to the first month of the new school year.  His visit highlights the significant importance of the county to our state.  In doing so, we recognize the role of education in preparing our students to undertake the future challenges and opportunities facing the county, state, and nation.

Now that families have established habits and routines there are two key factors essential to supporting a child’s success in school – sleep and attendance.  

Adopting healthy sleep habits helps students get the required rest they need. Suggested habits include skipping caffeine and caffeinated drinks after dinner, turning off electronic devices an hour before bedtime, and silencing phones.  Keeping the routine throughout the weekend will make Monday mornings easier to deal with.  The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute recommend the following amount of sleep by age: preschool-aged children, 11-12 hours a day, school-aged children at least 10 hours a day, and teens 9-10 hours a day. 

We know there is a strong connection between school attendance and academic success.  We also know absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance and achievement.  Regular school attendance patterns encourage the development of other responsible patterns of behavior.  Having a good education will help to give your child the best possible start in life.

We invite you to join our schools’ journey toward supporting our mission “to graduate students with the skills and knowledge to be good citizens.”  Together we can help our children be successful in school and life.

If you have any questions, or if I can be of assistance contact me at 478-2771 or ecampbell@k12.wv.us.

Thank you,

Dr. Eddie R. Campbell, Jr.

Superintendent of Schools
