Wood County Schools has made a change regarding the caller ID number for all mass calls and texts in which we want you to be aware. Previously, all mass calls made from Wood County Schools, used for emergencies or other important information, whether from the central office or from any individual school, used the number (304) 420-9520 for the caller ID. Starting today, all school mass calls will show a caller ID number that is the same as the school's main telephone number. District calls will continue to show a caller ID of (304) 420-9520. The caller ID number for any individual school may be verified by visiting the school's webpage and finding the phone number in the footer of the page.

Online threat investigated at PHS, Hamilton Officials at Parkersburg High School and Hamilton Middle School were made aware this morning of a possible threat made in an online chat Wednesday evening. Administrators immediately contacted their school resource officers and began investigating. A student identified as the possible source of the threat was identified and spoken to, as well as the student’s guardian. Officials found no evidence of a credible threat to any specific school or person and no weapons were found. The incident remains under investigation, but both schools are secure and safe and there is no indication of a threat at this time. Wood County Schools appreciate those who came forward to share the online post and to make administrators aware of the possible threat. Through the help of students and staff and our school resource officers, the issue was handled quickly and correctly and both schools continue to operate as normal today.

Wood County Schools is again offering a damage waiver program for student iPads. The program allows families to pay an upfront fee at the beginning of the school year which reduces the cost of repair and replacement of the iPad of those enrolled. Families can buy in one student for $30 or pay $60 for a family plan, which includes 2 or more students. If a family paid for the damage waiver last year and did NOT have a claim, that payment is rolled over into this year and the family is automatically enrolled again. If a family paid for the damage waiver last year and DID have a claim, they can buy back in to the program by filling out and paying for a new damage waiver. The program does require a student ID number. Contact your child’s school if you do not know their student ID number. Visit our payment portal to purchase. https://woodcountyschoolswv.com/payment

Wood County Schools' internet provider has a fiber line down between Charleston and Parkersburg. Their crews are on site and there is no ETA on when the line will be repaired. With that being said, there is a possibility that the internet may be out tomorrow at all WCS locations if the line is not repaired in time. Details will be shared as soon as we get them.
