Superintendent's Message


Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!  The administrators are back in the buildings and the entire office staff will be back in the buildings early next week.  We are busy preparing for another productive school year and are looking forward to seeing all the students and families at our various open houses.  Please watch the website for dates and times for those open houses and orientations.

As always, we are excited to start another school year here at West Muskingum.  We had a tremendous 2017-18 school year and 18-19 looks to be even better. I have already seen many teachers working in their classrooms and beginning preparations for the year. The custodial staff has worked diligently all summer preparing the buildings for our staff and students. They are putting the finishing touches on the inside and outside of the buildings and everything looks to be in great shape.

You might notice that both the middle and high school gym floors were completely stripped and refinished, as well as painted.  This was made possible by the West Muskingum Athletic Boosters and their generous donation to cover the entire cost of both floors.  A huge thanks goes out to the athletic boosters and their support of our students and coaches!

One major change that will impact the middle school is the start time.  We worked to match it more closely with the high school schedule.  Below are the class start and end times as well as the drop off times at each school.

                                 START                  END                          DROP OFF
High School             7:55 a.m.               2:32 p.m.                 7:35 a.m.

Middle School          8:02 a.m.               2:35 p.m.                 7:40 a.m.

Elementary School   9:00 a.m.              3:30 p.m.                 8:35 a.m.

Enjoy the remainder of your summer break and we look forward to seeing everyone soon!  Go West!
