From the principal

Middle School Parents:

The end of the 2020-2021 school year is quickly approaching.  Please remind your students to bring their charged Chromebook and a water bottle to school daily.

On Tuesday, May 25th, all Chromebooks and chargers will be collected from students.  If your student is absent on the day of collection, he/she should return it when they return to school.  PVA students should also return their Chromebook and charger between 7:30a-2:30p on the same day.

Other FAQ's (Frequently Asked Questions)
Homework - All homework/assignments should be available to your child via Google Classroom, or other similar programs. For the safety of our students and staff, limitations have been put in place.  If your child needs "paper" assignments, please contact our building secretary to request that information.  A plastic tote/bin has been placed outside of the main office doors, where (when requested), a parent may pick up assignments or materials from the "HOMEWORK BOX" after 3p.

Clinic/Nurse - Our district has a nurse on staff.  However, our nurse is mainly at the elementary building, but can be called to the middle school for illnesses or emergencies.  If a student is ill or injured, he/she should report to their teacher, and with the teacher's permission, should report to the office.  The office staff will assess the situation and will either contact the nurse or have the student call home.

Updates/Directory Changes - If you have changed a phone number or email address, please contact the building secretary, Mrs. Witkosky ([email protected]), so that we can update that information in our system.  If you have moved within the district, you will need to complete a Bus/Address Change Form and include proof of residency (a homeowners or lease agreement).  If you have had a change in marital status, please be sure to send a copy of the court documents to school.

Cell phones - Students are permitted to bring their electronic devices to school.  They may be kept with the student throughout the day, however, they should be shut off and put away.  If an emergency arises, parents should contact the office to have a message/note relayed to your child.  Students may be granted permission to use their phone to call home, but may only do so in the office area.

If you have additional questions, please feel free to email our building secretary, Mrs. Witkosky ([email protected]).

Students in 7th grade and up need a physical signed by a physician before he/she can participate in any sport.  Physicals are good for one year from the date of the physical.  
Physical form, insurance release, emergency medical authorization forms:

*Both forms/packets need to be completed by your physician, parent, and student and returned to the coach for each activity.

The definition of interscholastic extracurricular activities is defined as a school sponsored activity involving more than one school district. The Board permits students in grades 7 and 8 to participate in interscholastic/extracurricular activities if they have at least a 1.5 GPA and pass a minimum of 5 classes (OHSAA guidelines).  Failure to comply with the grading period eligibility requirements will result in extracurricular interscholastic ineligibility for the succeeding grading period.
