Any student in kindergarten that has not had their required immunizations for school will need to get the immunizations and turn in proof to the school before September 4, 2019. Letters were sent home in book bags last week with students who still need to get the immunizations. If the student’s immunization record is not up-to-date, or we have not received written proof of your child receiving the vaccine, you will be in violation of Ohio law, and it will become necessary to exclude this student from school until we receive the updated information. This absence will be unexcused. If you have any questions please contact Holly Tackett, school nurse, at 740-493-2831. Thank you.

We have to have an accurate number of players and we can’t just banking on the kids showing up when school starts because there are rules about number of days of conditioning before full practice. If you plan to play football in grades seven through 12 this year you must contact Coach Reese today either directly or through Facebook.

As much as I do not want to I’m going to have to cancel today. The other three schools and the CTC have already canceled which means our CTC kids would be out anyway. Most of our roads are in good shape but the hills are slick in spots. Even my biggest supporters would think I’m an idiot if we are the only school in the county to go and there was an accident with a bus or a student driver. If you think I’m nuts for canceling then you have a good argument but I’m not willing to be the only want to go to school in the county and risk an accident because some of the roads are definitely slick in spots.

I apologize for taking so long to do this drive and fighting this all evening but I have decided to go ahead and call a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. I’ve driven several county roads and almost all of them have standing water covering part of the road. Some roads like red bridge and Bell Hollow have water completely covering them right now. I’m also concerned about downed trees and I want to give a drivers the best chance to see any potential hazards left over from flooding or from the wind so we will be operating on a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. I think we will be able to have school tomorrow but I’m afraid I can’t get all of the roads checked in the morning before 6 AM to make the best decision possible.

I have never canceled school on a forecast but after yesterday and with the forecast of rain coming today my fear is that we would have to have an early dismissal again after the delay which wouldn’t make any sense because we would.be spending more time on buses today than in the classroom. Forecast says anywhere between 3/4 of an inch and 2 inches. We could possibly handle 3/4 that we couldn’t handle anymore than that without the ditches being in the same condition as yesterday. If we don’t get the rain I will apologize for canceling on a forecast. If we do it will look like a smart idea! That’s the world I live in every day!
10 months ago, Superintendent
Superintendent
I’m going to go ahead and call a two hour delay for tomorrow morning. The forecast isn’t talking about a lot more rain through the night but I’m more worried about ditches and back roads still being flooded in the morning and also the likelihood of debris laying on the road. I would much rather deal with that in the daylight than the dark.

We may find out that everything was fine but I don’t want to take that kind of chance.

Update! We are moving the mandatory winter sports meeting for all parents at 6 PM in room 101 to Tuesday, November 7th. Parents will also meet our new coaches! We will have a boosters meeting directly following the parent meeting. The reason for the time change is because some of our junior/senior parents have a FAFSA meeting at 5 pm already on Tuesday and we are trying to schedule as many meetings on one night as we can do that parents don’t have to spend more nights than necessary at the high school.
