The following is a message from the school nurse: Just a few reminders as we get closer to starting a new school year. Please remember to keep up with your child’s vaccine schedule. Being immunized against vaccine preventable diseases is very important. Any student who is entering kindergarten, 7th and 12th grade are still required to get their vaccines to be able to attend school. Our Western SOMC site is scheduling appointments for vaccines. Please call 740-493-1800 for more information. Also for any student who will be needing to take medication during this upcoming school year, please make a visit to your health care provider and have the proper paperwork filled out and turned into the school by the first day. No medication can be given unless we have the order from your health care provider. This is in reference to normal school vaccines and not a COVID-19 vaccine. There is no requirements for.a COVID-19 vaccine. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact the school nurse.

I’ve been hesitant to make this post because I wanted to ensure that those closest to him heard the news from a more personal source than Facebook. Based on the posts I’ve seen this afternoon I believe it is now appropriate for me, as superintendent, it to share the news of Mr. Matt Orin’s passing with the district and the students who he loved so much along with their parents and all members of the Western community. I won’t go into detail but I can confirm that Mr. Orin passed away from an apparent heart attack very unexpectedly. Matt Orin was a valued member of the Western family. The multitude of posts by Western staff members and students will do a much better job of describing Matt and his impact on our school and community than I can. Matt has been a great friend to me and many others at Western for the past several years and he will be greatly and sadly missed by staff and students alike. When details of the arrangements are made public I will share them with our staff and students. Please keep his wife and young daughter in your prayers. Please also remember Western staff members and the students who he has made such a tremendous impact on in your prayers.
Attention Class of 2022: Senior Sports banner pictures will be taken July 16 and July 23 from 9-5 at Treasured Images studio in Waverly. Amy will contact you for an appointment time. This is definitely for any Senior playing soccer, football, cross country, volleyball but any sport can participate. Athletes have an option of putting ALL their sports on one banner if they choose. That means they can pick a main sport and have their other sports as a silhouette in the back ground. If you choose one banner, that banner will be hung in the gym for the school year. Banners are $100 each. Or the athlete can have as many banners as they play sports. Their choice. Rachel will be at school on Tuesday July 13 from 11-3 to pass out uniforms. Please make arrangement to pick up the uniforms you are getting your picture taken in. There will be a paper at Treasured Images to fill out with your name, sports numbers & sponsorship so your banner can be made. Payment is due day of pictures.
