Important bus information-the following buses will not run tomorrow, Friday, April 29th: Bus 642: Glenwood, PSHS Bus 611: MES MHS, Bus 673: Bluefield Primary, Bluefield Intermediate, Bluefield Middle, and Bluefield High
Today, we inform parents, staff, and students that we recovered a gun at Bluefield High School. It is important to us that we clearly communicate with you about serious safety issues when they arise. The gun was found in a student’s locker following what is referred to as a reasonable suspicion search. We immediately notified local law enforcement to handle the criminal aspects. Bluefield High School administrators immediately initiated and followed all appropriate procedures at the school level, including a “lock down.” Possessing a weapon at school is clearly a violation of law and we have zero tolerance for this act. We expect to see criminal charges in addition to school imposed disciplinary measures. The student involved will be subject to school board policy and appropriate laws that govern weapons on school grounds, which is a zero acceptable possession policy. Today’s incident highlights the essential role students and all members of the school community play in school safety. Anyone with pertinent or concerning information should report it immediately to administration or law enforcement. As the school system says time after time, student and staff safety continues to be the most important part of our jobs. While this incident is unquestionably concerning, the school system will continue to be vigilant in ensuring student and staff safety.

Looking for 8th, 9th and 10th graders interested in the WV Ambassadors Camp! Entering its ninth year, Ambassadors Camp provides the participants with opportunities to learn more about the state with programs at the State Capitol and about college life while they stay in University of Charleston dorms. In addition to the normal eighth-grade camp we hold every year, we will be holding a camp for ninth-grade students and a camp for tenth-grade students. These camps are being held to make up for the camps that these students were not able to attend due to COVID-19. The camp for ninth-graders will be held on June 23-26, 2022. The camp for tenth-graders will be held June 27-30, 2022. The 8th grade camp will be held June 19-22, 2022. While at camp, the students stay in dorms and eat in the cafeteria at the University of Charleston. They ride school buses to their activities and have 24-hour teacher chaperones during the camp. West Virginia Ambassador Camp is completely funded and operated through grants from the Department of Arts, Culture and History, the West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission and the West Virginia Department of Education. Because of this support, camp is entirely free for participants. The West Virginia Department of Education provides technical support and the camp is coordinated and run by the West Virginia Department of Arts, Culture and History. Please let your principal know if you are interested in applying for this camp. The superintendent can submit two nominations and two alternate nominations for each grade level.
Starting April 27th, please vote daily for Montcalm High School's proposed project! If awarded $25,000, they plan to build a greenhouse to enrich STEM lessons. Kudos to teachers Amanda Feldes and Sarah Krondon for applying! Go Generals!
