Attention 9th and 10th Grade Parents!

The Warren County Career Center wants to hear from you. The administration and management team are in the process of developing a 5-year strategic plan to help us guide the career center forward. An important component of the plan is capturing input from all of our stakeholders, including staff, alumni, students, the business council, and parents.

The results of this survey will be analyzed only in aggregate, meaning individual responses will be anonymous. The more people who participate, the more accurate the data will be. For that reason, we want to encourage everyone to take 12 minutes to weigh in with what is important to you and where you would like to see the career center focus its energy moving forward.

Please take the survey here

Secure Online Portal

It is time to complete your student’s annual update of the Secure Online Portal. If you are a brand-new student to Little Miami this school year (2023-2024), you DO NOT need to update the Portal, as your essential information was submitted at Registration.

What You Can Do Now:

1. Complete what you can complete within the Portal.

2. Contact your student’s building secretary with necessary updates for contact information changes, emergency contacts, living with student status, authorized to pick up status, etc.

Your student’s information in the Secure Online Portal must be updated at the start of every year. Families must update critical student information, including emergency medical and contact information, acknowledgment of the district policies and handbooks, and the computer/internet acceptable use policy.

How Will I Get Alerts/Closure Information from LM?

Little Miami will again utilize the notification system, SwiftK12!

Be sure your current contact information is updated in the Secure Online Portal. You do not need to “sign up” for alerts. You should receive alerts if your contact information is updated in your student’s profile. IMPORTANT – if your student wants to receive text or phone alerts, please ensure their mobile number is also in the Secure Online Portal.

Fiscal Focus

Despite significant student enrollment growth over the last ten years, LM has strategically stretched out the funds generated by the passage of the 2011 Emergency Levy for more than ten years. This funding represents one-fifth of LM’s total operating budget and is a vital piece of the district’s financial health. These funds were renewed in November 2020.

However, with continued enrollment growth and increased demand for student supports, a request for new funds will need to be made of the community in the near future.

Imagination Library - ENROLL TODAY

DID YOU KNOW? By the age of three, a child’s brain is already 80% developed, and, by the time a child enters kindergarten, they must already know thousands of words in order to succeed in the classroom. Reading aloud to a child and giving them access to books is the best way to ensure they are prepared to enter kindergarten.

The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library wants to start a new chapter in early childhood literacy throughout Ohio by providing families with books. With the goal of preparing students entering Kindergarten for success in the classroom, the Imagination Library program will send a customized book to your child each month from birth until age five. Sign up is easy and FREE! Give your Panther the gift of reading & enroll today.
