It’s already October. This year is moving so fast! I would like to thank all of our parents and guardians who helped us while we were on the hybrid model in September. I know it wasn’t easy but this gave us the opportunity to teach and reinforce processes and procedures with the students in a smaller group setting. When they came back at the beginning of October, they knew what to do!
November will bring around the election for our country. On a local level, the schools have a levy on the ballot. Mr. Adam Hines, our treasurer and I have been having weekly levy meetings with the community. We’ve also placed informational flyers in the KT, HS and board offices. If you have questions about the levy, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. Hines or me at the board office at 330-326-2711. We would be happy to talk with you and answer any questions you have.
We ask you to please continue to monitor your child and not send them to school if they are sick. We have been fortunate enough so far to keep our students and staff safe and want to continue that. If you didn’t know, we now have a COVID dashboard on our website where you can monitor cases in our district weekly. This is updated every Friday afternoon if there are any COVID positive cases with students or staff and it is broken down by building. From our website, click on the “COVID-19 Safety” tab at the top of the page. You will then come to a new screen where you will click on “COVID Dashboard”.
Finally, I wanted to make sure all of our families knew about our food program. As many of your know, we’ve had a student food pantry at the JH/HS for a few years. This year we have expanded it to KT and also have been pre packaging bags each week due to the pandemic. Students are welcome to take a bag on the last day of the week to bring home over the weekend. Our remote families can come by the board office on Fridays between 7AM and 3PM to pick up a box of food. We want to help as many families as possible every week. The last two weeks, we have sent food home with 350 students each week! We are so happy to provide this service to our families! If you are in need of food, please tell your child to take a bag or stop by the board office.
Please stay safe and GO BOMBERS!
