Spring Valley SOAR students recently visited the Marshall University gross anatomy lab (also known as the cadaver lab) at the VA hospital. Students received hands-on learning experiences delivered by medical experts.
The SOAR (Science Occupations Academic Research) club seeks to expose students from the southern WV coal fields to science-related jobs. Many Spring Valley SOAR students aspire to go to medical school.

From Superintendent Alexander,
Wayne County Schools is scheduled to be closed due to a statewide work stoppage on Thursday, February 22, 2018 and Friday, February 23, 2018. We are hopeful that the issues leading to the work stoppage are addressed and that the cancellation of school will not be necessary. We will make an immediate announcement if the statewide work stoppage is cancelled or delayed. We want to emphasize that school will be open on a regular schedule on Monday, February 26, 2018. Please continue to monitor local news sources and the district’s website for the latest updates in regards to the school schedule.
Seniors, the deadline to complete FAFSA applications is March 1st! Please, see your counselors if you have any questions or need assistance.
