Disappointing News

Many of you heard Governor DeWine announce yesterday that schools in Ohio will continue with remote learning for the remainder of the school year. This means we will continue with lessons the way we are currently doing so, and will not be returning to the classrooms after May 1. I know this is very disappointing to many of you, including your administrators, teachers and other staff members. We miss seeing you on a daily basis and we are all ready for stay at home orders to be over and have life return to the way we previously knew. However, at this time it is not in the best interests of the citizens of Ohio to have schools reopen and to end social distancing. Governor DeWine is looking out for our best interests, and is committed to keeping as many people as safe and healthy as possible.


In the next few days we will address the many activities we traditionally have at the end of the school year. We currently know that our annual prom and senior awards ceremony, scheduled for May 9, and May 19, respectively, will be cancelled. We will look at options for both. Without knowing when social distancing will end, whether or not a vaccine will be ready to use and whether or not the virus makes a comeback when we return to life as we once knew, makes it impossible to set a rescheduled date(s) at this time. It is not pleasant to deal with “unknowns.” Unfortunately, the Career Center,

along with the rest of our state and our country will have to wait and see what the future holds.

Yearbooks

Mrs. Jenkins will be putting together the yearbook for the 2019-2020 school year. Yearbook order forms have been mailed home and should arrive this week.

Please send the order slips back with your payment. Yearbooks will be completed over the summer and delivered in October.

Current Junior Students and Scheduling for Next Year

Junior students who have not scheduled classes for next year should reach out to their guidance counselor via email. Mrs. Elliott and Mrs. Schwendeman were in the process of having scheduling meetings with students when Governor DeWine issued the stay at home order. Guidance counselors have sent emails to students but many have gone unanswered. Please contact your guidance counselor as soon as possible.


Email addresses

Have a safe and healthy Tuesday.
