    Educating the whole child goes well beyond books and papers. Students in all Mingo County schools enjoy a nutritious breakfast and lunch at no cost of their own thanks to the Community Eligibility Option. A grant provides fresh fruits for snacks to most elementary students, with school-made food served at nearly every lunch. Students are encouraged to take charge of their own well-being at an early age, with the Mingo County Diabetes Coalition partnering with schools to promote before or after school walks and 5K runs within the community.

    New 2015-16 School Calendar

    After holding two public meetings to solicit public comments on the 2015-16 school calendar, the Mingo County Board of Education voted during its special meeting on April 14, 2015, to adopt a calendar. The calendar was approved by the West Virginia Department of Education and is now official.
