Message from the Principal

December 10, 2021

It's getting closer to break and you can feel it that everyone is ready! This can be a challenging time for students to self-regulate as there is so much going on and they can begin to feel anxious or ovewhelmed. When they feel this way, it can be expressed through anger, frustration, or shutting down. Please encourage them to be kind to one another and ask for help. If your child is struggling, please encourage them to talk to their teacher or our guidance staff. Both Mrs. Snyder and Mrs. Adams have been working to help students through some of these issues. We are here to help and support them.

From the Nurse

If you are interested in a Covid 19 vaccine for your child, contact your health care provider or the Miami County Health Department. See more information below. Thank you for all of your help supporting our back to school guidelines. It has really helped to reduce our quarantine and postiive covid numbers.

If your student has lost their stylus, it is $20 to replace. Students can purchase one in the Minion Office.

Bus / Pick up Changes

If you need to change your child's bus going home or that they are being picked up, parents MUST speak to a person. DO NOT LEAVE A MESSAGE as the staff member may not hear their messages before the end of the school day.
