The parking lot in front of the main building and annex will be shut down on Wednesday, January 10. We request that students be dropped off or ride the bus. We understand that this isn’t a possibility for everyone, however, we are trying to minimize the amount of traffic and vehicles to be parked. If your student must drive to school, we ask that drivers park at Ripley Elementary, the Early Learning Center, the city pool, the new Police Department (which is the old R&R Auto Sales) or the gravel area by the softball field. The upper parking lot will be designated for staff parking only while the main/annex lot is shut down.

Good afternoon. This is Will Hosaflook, Superintendent of Jackson County Schools. On Tuesday, December 19, our internet service provider WVNET will be completing network maintenance on their server systems. It is very likely all governmental agencies and schools in West Virginia will not have internet access. However, all school phone systems should work if you need to contact the school. School personnel are aware of the internet outage and have adjusted their plans accordingly. Tuesday will be our last full day of school before Christmas break, while on Wednesday, December 20, students will be dismissed 3 hours early. Please have a wonderful Holiday Season.

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid, or FAFSA, is projected to be released December 31. A big change this year is the FSA ID needs to be created and approved before the FAFSA can be submitted. This approval can take up to 3 days, so creating it now is recommended. Your FSA ID is your electronic signature that will be used to sign the FAFSA. Students should have created their ID in English classes back in October. For parents, if you are married and file jointly, only one parent needs an FSA ID. If you are married and file separately, both parents need an FSA ID. Information for divorced parents and to create your FSA ID can be found at studentaid.gov. If you have further questions, you can call 1 877 987 7664 or call the school and ask to speak with Tina Holley, 12th grade counselor.

Staff, parents and students, Ripley High School will be undergoing a new install of lights for the baseball and softball fields. While that’s exciting, it also poses a parking and traffic problem. The parking lot in front of the main building and annex will temporarily be shut down starting Wednesday. After that, we will only have part of the parking lot until the completion of the project. With that being said, we request that if at all possible, students be dropped off or ride the bus until the parking situation is fixed. We understand that this isn’t a possibility for everyone, however, we are trying to minimize the amount of traffic and vehicles to be parked. If this isn’t possible, and your student must drive to school we ask that drivers park at Ripley Elementary, the Early Learning Center, the city pool, the new Police Department (which is the old R&R Auto Sales) or the gravel area by the softball field. The upper parking lot will be designated for staff parking only while the annex lot is shut down on Wednesday. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, and thank you for your cooperation. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to reach Mr. Swiney at (304) 372-7355 or at cswiney@k12.wv.us.
