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.
Ms. Eastham and Ms. Fischer, both science teachers at Spring Valley High School, sponsor the SVHS SOAR club.
The Snapchat threat being circulated appears to be from a situation at Shades Valley in Alabama or Valley High School in Fayette County, WV. There are no indications that it relates to our Spring Valley High School. Superintendent Alexander and Security Director Hart were notified last night at the first reports in our area. They have been in touch with law enforcement and no connection to Spring Valley was found. If there are further updates, we will share immediately.
There is a social media post going viral in our area this evening regarding a Snapchat threat. The screenshots appear to be from an Irondale, Alabama incident at Shades Valley HS that is currently under investigation there. The SVHS and Valley references have caused great concern for our students and parents. Superintendent Alexander and Safety Director Hart have been notified. They have been in touch with law enforcement. WV State Police are aware and checking into the post as well.
