(WVVA) - Over the weekend, West Virginia State Superintendent W. Clayton Burch provided an update on the services schools are providing to children during the current shutdown.
Burch praised the work both staff members and volunteers are doing to continue the food programs that have been put into place. In an interview on Monday, he highlighted the work of schools in southern West Virginia.
"You talk about a group of school districts in southern West Virginia that are absolutely West Virginians taking care of West Virginians," Burch said.
"I saw a message out of southern West Virginia last week. Every single boxed meal that went out of that district had a personal message to every child basically 'we love you, we're thinking about you, we're caring about you' and that's what our families need right now."
