OSD Policy

The winter and spring months of the year bring school closings and make-up days that have proven disruptive to the school calendar and instructional programs for students. Unscheduled closings compromise the quality of the learning process that we carefully and deliberately plan and prepare for our students. Make-up days impact school-sponsored and personal activities, including planned vacations, faculty professional development programs, graduation, etc.

To maintain consistency in our curriculum and eliminate the need to extend school into the summer or cancel holidays or programs that are currently scheduled, we have implemented an Online School Day (OSD) program. An OSD will count as a full school day, one of the 180 required by the State of West Virginia.

This program is intended to provide meaningful learning experiences for SJHS students. Parents and students are encouraged to integrate the following strategies into their OSD academic time:

  • Start early in the day.
  • Establish a quiet learning space and remove distractions to learning.
  • Review the work that needs to be completed.
  • Set goals for completing the work on time.
  • Create a routine.

Thank You Advantage Toyota

Several area schools recently benefited from Advantage Toyota in Barboursville.  St. Joe received a check in the amount of $1500 given out at the dealership on Wednesday, November 29th.  These funds can be used by teachers and school personnel for any need within the school.   Belinda Chapman, Advancement Director, accepted the donation with students L. Blatt, S. Walters, and S. Morris.
