Message from the Superintendent

  • Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year, the “coolest year ever” in many ways.

    First, we want to thank everyone for all your support of our children and schools over the last year.  For the first time ever, we will begin schools in air-conditioned classrooms!  Our students will also be attending five days a week on a regular schedule, in-person!

    August has always been a great time of year preparing for students and staff to return. We are fortunate to be in a service profession in a great community where we get to see our students and faculty return with excitement. The preparation for this school year has shifted back to what we are used to in previous years and is a welcome return to routine.  Our teachers and staff are working extremely hard to make the start of the 2021-2022 school year as successful as possible.  

    There are still several unknowns with the pandemic but we are fortunate to have a supportive community to help our staff safely engage our students in learning. We are also very fortunate to be in a health district that we can rely on throughout the school year for guidance.

    We continue to focus on the goals set forth in our six-year vision. Floyd County Schools will continue to provide free meals to all students. Students have great opportunities to learn and experience at every grade level and subject area.  Our growth is physically evident as construction on the Collaboration and Career Development Center progresses on the high school campus.  We are greatly appreciative of our School Board and our Board of Supervisor members for understanding the vision to expand the experiences for our students and community and provide the best facilities to do so.  

    Please feel free to contact any of our administrators at our schools and at the school board office if we can assist you in any way. We look forward to having a safe and enjoyable school year!

    Warmest Regards,

    Dr. Wheeler
