March Newsletter

Happy March!! We have had some glimpses of spring temperatures and sunshine, and the school year is going quickly!


We will begin instituting a system at school to help with security and to readily identify any adult who is in our building. If you have been volunteering, or visiting your child for lunch please understand that we are changing our procedures and you will be asked to wear a lanyard upon signing in.


I know many of you are concerned about the corona virus, and the district has been taking precautions with disinfecting and staying up-to-date on the latest news/information. The most important things your child can do is wash their hands frequently, cough/sneeze into their elbow, keep their hands away from their face, and stay home if sick. Please make sure you read Ms. Wyckoff's letter on the district web page as it has very important information on it. (www.clearfork.k12.oh.us)
