Valley Head School set to be auctioned

ELKINS — Today’s scheduled auction by the Randolph County Board of Education will feature just one former school, instead of eight properties, school officials announced Wednesday.

Valley Head Elementary School will be sold at auction at 4 p.m. today, with registration at 3 p.m. It will take place at the Randolph County Board of Education office. The auction also initially was scheduled to include seven other properties that have been deeded to the BOE.

However, the auction has been amended to include just the former Valley Head School at this time, school officials announced.

The announcement sent by email Wednesday said, “Due to unforeseen circumstances RANDOLPH COUNTY SCHOOLS will only be selling Valley Head Elementary School on Thursday, January 11, 2018, at 4:00pm. (sic) We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Information on the sale of additional properties will be published at a later date.”
