On behalf of the Taylor County Board of Education and the faculty and staff of the Taylor County School System, we offer our condolences to the family of Mr. Ronald S. Harris. Our hearts are saddened by the news of his passing. While Mr. Harris held other positions in the school system, his time as a school board member is the most well-known. He served as a school board member for 28 years. We are grateful for his dedication to public education and service to the students of Taylor County for so many years. In his memory, we will be placing a wreath on the door of the central office. He will be greatly missed. With our deepest sympathy, Jennifer Albritton, Taylor County School Superintendent

January 6, 2024 Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, While there is still work to be done on the 3-12 campus, we are excited to host an open house for students, parents, and guardians on Monday, January 8th. We will open the doors on January 8th from 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Hopefully, this will allow you to plan a time that will be convenient for you. A driveway and parking layout is available by clicking the link below. For the open house, please access the campus through the main driveway off RL McDougald Drive. There will be three parking lots available for you to park for the open house. Please use parking lot B, C, or D. We ask that you enter the building through either the main elementary school entrance or the main middle school/high school entrance. Those entrances are near parking lot C and D, and there are cast stone signs directly above those entrances. Don’t forget to review the layout available by clicking the link below.

December 29, 2023 Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians, As we approach the beginning of the second semester of the 2023-2024 school year, I know you have questions and concerns about our move into our new school. Our teachers will be returning on January 3rd with several days to prepare for the return of students on January 10th. While there is still work to be done on the 3-12 campus, we will be excited to host an open house for students, parents, and guardians on January 8th. We will open the doors on January 8th at 12:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. Hopefully, this will allow you to plan a time that will be convenient for you. A more formal announcement of the open house is forthcoming. We will also provide a driveway and parking layout in the coming days. In general, the buses and employees will utilize the driveway off of East Main Street. Our student drivers and parents will access the campus through the driveway off of RL McDougald Drive. Once our new campus is closer to final completion, we plan to host a community event to include a ribbon cutting ceremony and an open house for the community. We will provide a more formal announcement once that date is set. I am grateful for the support and excitement you have shown for our new school, and I can’t wait for everyone to get a chance to see it. I hope you continue to enjoy the holidays, and we look forward to welcoming our students back on January 10th. Respectfully, Jennifer Albritton Superintendent

An Expression of Sympathy to the Family of Horace Wilder On behalf of the Taylor County Board of Education and the faculty and staff of the Taylor County School System, we offer our condolences to the family of Horace Wilder. He has served our school system for over 40 years through his work as a bus driver and a custodian. In recent years, he has served part-time as a custodian inspiring us as he persevered through health challenges. Our hearts are broken as we reflect on his faithfulness to serve the students of Taylor County for so many years. He will be greatly missed. In his memory, we will be placing a wreath on his old bus in front of the high school and on the sign at the bus garage. With Our Deepest Sympathy, Jennifer Albritton Taylor County School Superintendent
