The summer school session for high schools will begin on June 3, and will continue through June 30. If your high school student has failing average grades for any course, they may recover their credit in the summer session. Summer school will be conducted in a distance learning, or "at home" format, with students completing credit recovery courses from home. Teachers will be available every day for tutoring and to answer questions. To avoid repeating classes, parent should register students on our online form, which can be accessed at mingoschools.com. Please complete the form before June 3. Late registrations will be accepted, but students should register prior to the start date to ensure having time to complete courses.
Special Summer School laptops have been prepared for our students and can be picked up at the school on June 3, from 8am-12pm. All testing must be completed on these devices to ensure security.
Hours: Students will log in to a team meeting each day from 8am-12pm. Instructions will be provided for accessing and completing coursework, as well as for testing, when students pick up their summer computers. Any outstanding device should be returned at this time.
Please note: Summer school will not be in session for June 9 (Election Day) or June 19 (West Virginia Day).

Mingo County Schools releases the following update regarding senior class and graduation activities for Mingo Central and Tug Valley High Schools.
Two summer dates have been set for each high school’s graduation ceremony. These dates are as follows:
If social distancing and crowd size guidelines prohibit a ceremony to which students and families may attend, the ceremony will be moved to the second set of dates:
If the July dates are used, an in-person graduation SHALL BE HELD to the extent allowed by the guidelines in effect at that time, even if the event has to be configured to have groups of students and families rotating through the ceremony to stay within the mandated gathering size.
The cap and gown photo/video session for each school will be held the week of May 26-29. Students will be filmed and photographed walking across a decorated stage. The photos and videos will be used for a television broadcast celebrating the graduates, to be aired later in the summer on Fox 11/ WCHS TV, following the in-person graduation ceremonies, whether held in June or July. EACH GRADUATE WILL BE PERMITTED FOUR FAMILY GUESTS at the cap and gown photo/ video session. All participants are expected to follow the social distancing measures made at each school location. Graduates, at this time, will also pick up a packet containing any awards and shall return school books, computers, and other school property.
A special program will be presented on a web-based platform, showing a picture of each senior and a listing of awards or scholarships they received.
All Mingo County Schools' students will be receiving a food benefit by mid-June to offset the financial hardships caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. A Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer (P-EBT) card will be mailed to families of our students to help cover food costs during the summer. The card will be pre-loaded with $313 per student in the household and will be mailed to the student's address on file at your child’s/children’s school(s). This card can be used at any location SNAP EBT cards are accepted.
It is CRITICAL to make certain that you provide any new address information for your child in order to receive the P-EBT card. You can do so by completing the form provided on this link. You must be the custodial parent/guardian to submit an update form. If you have more than four students in your household, you may complete and submit a second form for any additional students. All submissions must be made by May 15, 2020. Click this link to update your student/family contact information.
Please note: Families who currently receive SNAP benefits will have the $313 per student automatically added to their SNAP EBT cards.
