The Muraski Tribune: Issue 18


A Message From the Principals

Good Morning Muraski Families,

I hope you and your families continue to remain healthy as we see a surge in Covid-19 in the state of Ohio. We had a great first week back to school, but it wasn't free of students needing to quarantine, positive cases outside of school, and sickness in our building. Please assist us by monitoring your children for symptoms prior to sending them to school, communicate with the school if they are exposed to someone testing positive for COVID-19, and let us know if they test positive, whether it is an at home test or PCR done by a medical professional. This will help us in working to promote the safest environment for all staff and students at Muraski.

If everyone continues to do their part, we can make Muraski a great place for everyone to learn each and every day!

Let's have a great week!

Mike Griffen

Reminders About Outdoor Recess

As we are starting to experience our first truly cold weather, I want to remind everyone that we will continue to go outside for recess as long as the following criteria are met:

  • Temperatures above 20 degrees
  • Temperatures above 10 degrees with the windchill
  • Precipitation allows us to go outside safely

As it starts to snow, if your child would like to play in the snow on our playground, they MUST HAVE the following items.

1. Winter Coat

2. Snow Pants

3. Gloves

4. Winter Hat

5. Snow Boots

If they DO NOT have all 5 items, they won't be permitted to play in the snow, meaning they will be limited to the playground and equipment that is accessible.


We had the opportunity to present at the PTA council meeting last week and share all the great things happening at Muraski. One topic we discussed was PBIS, focusing on an overview of our PBIS meetings, data used to drive our support for the students, and our position recognition process. We thought you may like to take a look at what we presented as it will provide some more information regarding PBIS here at Muraski.

School Climate Survey

It is very important to us at Muraski that we maintain a positive school culture and climate for our students and staff. We want students to feel safe and happy about coming to school each day. As a way to ensure we are doing everything here at Muraski to support your child at school, we are asking that you set aside 10-15 minutes throughout this next week to fill out a School Climate Survey. This survey consists of 21 questions where you are asked questions regarding your perception of Muraski's school cimate using a 4-point rating scale (ranging from strongly agree to strongl disagree). The survey will close on January 31st. Once the window has closed, we plan on using the information gathered from the survey to plan our next steps as a building after the holiday break. We will also be communicating these results with you in January. Thanks so much for taking the time to complete this survey. With the support and feedback you povide us, we are hopeful to continue providing our students with a safe, fun, and positive learning environment.
