The West Point Consolidated School District Board of Trustees approved the Superintendent’s recommendation to delay the start of school until Monday, August 31, 2020. The Superintendent’s request was made after consulting with the Clay County Emergency Management Agency. Factors related to the spike in COVID-19 numbers across Clay County and surrounding areas influenced this decision. Changing the date that school starts will make it necessary to adjust the school calendar. Once changes are confirmed with dates, we will share that information with you. On August 31st, all students will start school via virtual/distance learning. Students who chose traditional (face-to-face) option will transition back to school at a later date based on information obtained from EMA, local health officials and the Mississippi Department of Education. Staff will be notified on Monday, July 27th of changes to their schedules.
