Tech Dept Busy During Closure

The Technology Department typically works in the background, supporting the teaching and learning of staff and students. During this COVID-19 school closure, however, we have been very busy and very visible. Our initial response focused on getting school chromebooks checked out to any student that needed one, in order to complete their digital assignments. Through a chromebook survey, we determined who needed to borrow one and then scheduled times for pickup. 


After meeting that initial need, we looked outward to see how we could contribute to supporting efforts. We have been using our 3-D printers to print PPE masks. We reached out to the Robert C. Byrd Institute, affiliated with Marshall University in Huntington. They have an approved design for a reusable N95 mask, which they shared with us. N95 masks cover the wearer’s nose and mouth to protect against potentially harmful airborne particles by filtering at least 95 percent of particles as small as 0.3 microns in size. 


The High School MIT class has been working remotely with Mr. Tom Vallance, Technology Coordinator, to produce a remote news video to share the impact COVID has had on school operations and the community as a whole. Be watching for this video to be posted on the website soon.


THANK YOU, Mr. Vallance for continuing to reach out to and work with students and to help the District be part of the solution. #THEBURGWAY
