A section of Division Street will be closed to through traffic beginning Monday, Jan. 23, 2023. A Parkersburg Utility Board project will close Division Street from Blizzard Drive to Division Street Extension. Work will run from 7 a.m.-6 p.m. daily and is expected to take 3 weeks to complete. Families are urged to find alternate routes for student pick up and drop off at Franklin Elementary Center, Parkersburg South High School, the Wood County Technical Center and Gihon Elementary School. Motorists also should plan for delays due to increased traffic. Buses 201, 128, 146 and 144 will run modified routes, and all area buses may experience delays due to increased traffic. Drivers of special education buses will contact families directly if delays would affect pick up and drop off times for other schools. Please be patient and allow more time in your morning and evening commutes as we adjust to this road closure.

Typically, the fall and winter months are times when sickness increases and spreads more easily. Over the last two years, the public has undertaken preventive measures (ie; masking, social distancing, vaccinations etc.) to help limit the spread of COVID-19. This has also helped prevent the transmission of other respiratory illnesses (flu, RSV). Now, as more people relax these precautions, these viruses are more likely to spread. To help decrease the spread of respiratory diseases in our schools and community, talk to your healthcare provider about getting your flu shot and Covid-19 booster. Flu shots and Covid-19 bivalent boosters are being offered for staff and community at our Lincoln facility. Call 304-420-9562 to schedule.
