Dear Monongalia County Schools' Community,

Like you, we are deeply saddened to once again find our nation coping with the reality of yet another school massacre. We share in the heartbreak of the families who have lost a loved one due to the senseless act of violence in Tuesday’s shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

The tragedy is a shocking reminder of how quickly the simple routine of the school day can be fatally upended by gun violence. School should and must be a place where students feel completely safe and secure.

As an added precaution, we are working with our local law enforcement officials to provide an increased police presence around our buildings for the remainder of the school year.

Because children and teens will process this news in different ways, counselors are available at each of our school buildings to assist students who may need extra support. We strongly encourage students to stop by the counseling office at any time. 

Monongalia County Schools will continue with our enduring efforts to provide the most safe and welcoming schools possible.   

Please join us as we stand for the Uvalde community through this devastating event. We ask that you keep the students, staff, and families of the Uvalde Consolidated Independent School District in your thoughts at this time.
