Principal's Corner

Meet Mr. Barrett

Dear Parents and Families of Man Elementary,

I am very excited to introduce myself as the new Principal of Man Elementary School. I have had the opportunity to work in the Logan County School System for 11 years.  I began my career as a Special Education teacher at Man Elementary and Man Middle School. I have been a school administrator for seven years.  The last five years I have had the privileges of being the principal of West Chapmanville Elementary School.  

Please know you are always welcome to visit Man Elementary.  We are here to partner with parents, grandparents, and our community to provide the best possible education to all our little Pioneers. Our goal is to provide a rich and rigorous academic program to all students.

It is my mission as an administrator to ensure that every Man Elementary Pioneer has the opportunity to attend a school that prepares them for academic, social and personal success in a safe and supportive environment.  Our parents are vital components of this vision and as a school community; we encourage you to be an active participant in your child's education.   

I would like to extend my sincerest wishes for a productive and successful end to the 2016-2017 school year.  The Man Elementary staff  is looking forward to lots of fun and learning the last two months of school. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. My email is or I can be reached by phone at 304-583-8316.


Mr. Doug Barrett
