OAK HILL, WV (WOAY) – With kids out of school, it can be hard to adjust to the new normal and easy to lose school spirit.
“The school is so much more than it ever has been before,” says Oak Hill High School Principal Katie Hayes. “It’s not just a place kids go to learn. It is their community, and students are missing that, teachers are really missing that, parents are missing it.”
Oak Hill High School combats the problem by joining the “Be the Light,” movement to remind students that their school hasn’t forgotten them. To symbolize hope, the school will light up all its stadiums every Monday night at 8 p.m.
If you drive through campus, you are asked to not get out of your vehicle. Officials plan to patrol the area to ensure all safety measures are being followed.
