The Salem Elementary School is a vital part of our community and, as most everyone knows, the Harrison County Board of Education wants to close our last remaining school, and consolidate our chldren with other schools and house them where the current Mountaineer Middle School is located. This creates longer bus rides for our young children and it also can have other results that negatively impacts our wonderful community.


    We would like to ask for all the community to come together towards this common goal and take just a few minutes of your time, and a small amount of effort, in order to preserve our way of life and save the Salem Elementary School. Even if you do not have any connection to any children or families that are impacted by this, your support would be greatly appreciated.


    Please click on the link below and print off three copies of the letter that you can sign, date, and send to the Harrison County Board of Education, the West Virginia State Board of Education, as well as the Harrison County Commission letting them know that you do not support this action that the Board of Education is intending to take.
