Last Week's Threat

At this time the police and school are still investigating last week's threat. Due to the ongoing nature of the investigation, no additional details can be provided. As soon as more information becomes available, we will share an update.

Update on Last February's Bomb Threat

Last February our school received a bomb threat, and we evacuated the building and canceled classes for the remainder of the day. This led to a police and school investigation and subsequent arrest and trial of a young man from Painsville, Ohio. The young man was convicted of multiple crimes and is incarcerated and will not be eligible for parole until 2019.

Parent-Teacher Conferences on February 11th

We have parent teacher conferences on February 11. They will run from 3:20 PM - 6:20 PM and will have the same format (arena style) as in the past. We look forward to seeing everyone.
