Safer Schools Ohio
A multi-agency effort created to assist schools in continuously improving the safety of our students. By calling or texting the statewide anonymous hotline parents, students or community members can report anything that is suspicious or endangering you, your friends or your school.
Immunizations for 7th graders
If you have not turned in your child's proof of immunizations from a doctor's office, please do so ASAP. The cutoff date was September 5th.
From our Nurse
If your child has outgrown sweatpants or other comfortable clothing that you would like to donate, please consider sending them to the school. Extra clothes come in handy when students fall in a puddle at recess or spill food/drink on themselves at lunch. Please bring them to the main office marked as "donation". Thank you and Happy Holidays!
