West Taylor Elementary School
Remote Learning until Jan. 29th
We want to thank you for your patience as we met this evening to determine the delivery of instruction for students in Taylor County Schools. The Taylor County Board of Education has determined that our students will remain remote for the next two weeks. We will make our decision on what lies ahead for the following two weeks on Friday, January 29, 2021.
Please visit the county website and Facebook page as well as the websites of your students’ school for the most up to date information as we continue to move forward with the instructional program in Taylor County.
The plan approved on December 22, 2020 includes the following Taylor County numbers to be used to determine the color we follow for instructional delivery. (*please go to www.taylorcountyboe.net for a color chart)
Green Yellow Gold Orange Red
Cumulative number of positives in a 7- day period 3 or less 4 – 11 12 – 17 18 – 29 30 or more
We will move down one-color level if the positivity rate on Friday is below 5%.
Over the last week Taylor County has had a total of 52 new cases. This puts us in the red category. When we apply Friday, January 15, 2021 positivity rate of 3.96 as reported by the WVDHHR we are orange.
Thank you for your continued support of our staff and students.
