CLHS Skull & Crossbones
Leading ALL Students to College, Career and Civic Readiness
Piracy News and Updates
Good afternoon CLHS Parents and Community members,
It is hard to believe we are fast approaching the end of September. Just three weeks ago many of our students were busy with their fair projects (more on that below). While we are only in our third week of school, CLHS has been buzzing with activity for over a month. Our student athletes are at the half way point of the Fall sports seasons, and are working hard to prepare for the post-season.
This issue of the skull and crossbones includes information on the state report card, college and military visits, important dates and student achievement. The release of the local report card this week gives us reason to celebrate and a focus for areas of improvement. CLHS is rated 3 stars overall and showed improvement in most areas. Below is an overview of the report card. Click Here to get more detailed information.

Sage Whetnall has earned distinction as one of the Top 4 FFA members in the nation in the Equine Entrepreneurship Proficiency Award Area!
Sage won the State in this area at the Ohio FFA State Convention in May! Since then, her application was forwarded to the National level along with other State Winners from across the country. A panel of judges evaluated those applications throughout the summer to determine those members who would advance to the National Level.

News from the School Nurse
As required by the Ohio Department of Health, vision and hearing screenings will begin soon for all new students to the district and students in preschool, kindergarten, first, third, fifth, seventh, ninth, and eleventh grade.
Why is it important to have your child’s vision and hearing screened? Young children with vision problems do not know the way that they see the world is not the way they should be seeing it. Without early detection and treatment, children’s vision problems can lead to permanent vision loss and learning difficulties.
Hearing is important for speech, language development, reading and learning. A hearing screening can detect if your student needs further hearing testing. Even if your student has passed a hearing screening previously, their hearing can change. Hearing problems can be related to medical problems. Hearing loss is invisible, and your student may appear to not be paying attention.
How will the results be shared? If your child does not pass the vision screening, the school nurse will send a letter to share the results and may make a recommendation for further evaluation by an eye care specialist. If your child does not pass the hearing screening, a rescreen and/or referral will be made.
If your child passed the vision and/or hearing screening, you may not be contacted. You are welcome to contact the school nurse to learn the screening findings.
Vision and hearing screenings are not a substitute for a complete hearing evaluation or comprehensive eye exam.
If you have any questions about the school vision or hearing screening program, please contact our school nurse, Bridget Lower, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 419-864-3691 ext 2014.
2023 Required immunizations
