Chromebook/Packets Grades K-5
We will be distrubiting Chromebooks and collecting packets for grades K-5 Monday. Drop off/pickup will be 10:00-11:00 for grades K-2, and 11:00-12:00 grades 3-5. The procedure will be the same as the last packet pickup. Please remain in your car, we ask parents to put packets in the boxes for us, we will hand you your chromebook. If you have not reached out to your child's teacher or did not answer the call from your child's teacher, you will not be getting a Chromebook Monday. If you need a Chromebook after Monday, please let your child's teacher know. If your child received a packet we will notify you in two weeks for the collection process, if you can not come during those hours you may have someone else pick up chromebook/packets.

Let's have some fun and join the Bear Hunt and show our Bear Pride during this stay at home order. Simply place a stuffed bear in your window so kids can hunt for them while on family walks or drives through the neighborhood. If you dont have a bear you can always color one and place it in the window. Send pictures of your bear in the window to Mrs. Gibson for the webpage: firstname.lastname@example.org

COVID-19 Update Communication
Dear Parents and Community Members,
After consultation with the Ohio Department of Health, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine has required all schools to be closed beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, April 3, 2020.
Following a countywide meeting with Wesley Vins, Columbiana County Health Commissioner, and the local school superintendents, the following listed recommendations will be effective immediately:
Additional guidance from Ohio High School Athletic Association (ohsaa.org) will be monitored.
Parents should prepare for their children’s instruction to begin Monday, March 23, 2020.
It is also important to note that as of this writing, there are no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Columbiana County. This is a rapidly evolving situation, and one that is being monitored closely. Schools in Columbiana County have previously developed emergency operation plans that specifically address how to deal with a large-scale illness outbreak, including procedures for excluding ill students and staff, cancellation of activities and mass gatherings, and, if necessary, school closure. Practicing good hygiene can help to limit the spread of viruses in our schools. Custodial staff will continue to regularly clean and disinfect classrooms and common areas.
We will continue to stress the recommended precautions to avoid exposure to the virus, which are the same precautions you would take to avoid the flu. To keep your family safe:
We will be continuing our partnerships with public health experts and updating you when new relevant information is available. You may find additional information here:

Just a reminder that any bus changes need to be approved by the school Prior to the change. Please notify the school office so that a Bus Pass will be issued to your student. A written note or phone call from a parent or guardian is required for all changes.
Attention Seniors and Parents:
In everything we do, the safety of our students and staff is our top concern. In light of that, we want to share an important message about the coronavirus (COVID-19) illness. With the virus now spreading outside its origins in China, federal health officials are preparing for a likely outbreak in the United States. The District is monitoring the situation closely and is taking direction from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Ohio Department of Health and the Columbiana County Board of Health regarding mitigation procedures.
We are asking parents to help in the effort to minimize the spread of this type of virus by having your family follow the recommendations from the CDC, which are the same ones that everyone should practice during flu season:
In addition, the school district is following recommendations from the CDC to daily clean areas and equipment frequently touched by students and staff, and encourage students to wash hands often. In addition, we will be adding extra hand sanitation dispensers in our cafeterias.
We also encourage parents to report if their child has a confirmed case of the flu to help us track viral infections and to better target our sanitizing efforts.
If we do experience COVID-19 cases, we will take our direction from the CDC, Ohio Department of Health and Columbiana Board of Health regarding potential school closings.
