Ohio County Schools administrators are working closely with school principals and staff members to ensure that such a situation does not occur again. We are also working with the school safety committees to put additional protocols and practices in place. The safety of our students is the top priority, and Ohio County Schools will do what is necessary to protect the children who attend our schools.
