Safety Day will be on Tuesday, May 26. We are in need for volunteers from 9-12:30 to help at the stations. This is a fun day with a lot of action! If you can help please call the office at 419-884-1308.
If your child’s birthday falls in the summer and he/she would like to celebrate it during school please send a note to the teacher. The teacher will let us know so we announce it in the morning.
Lost and Found
Please come and look through the lost and found for items that may belong to you. The items in the lost and found will be donated to a charitable organization if they are not claimed by Friday, June 5th.
Please make sure that you pick up any medicine that we have in the office for your children. If it is not picked up by Friday, June 5th it will be disposed. We are not permitted to send it home on the bus. Also, if your student has an emergency medical plan please make sure it is updated before the first day of school next year. Nurse Paula will send home the papers with this past year’s plan!
Bus Stops for the 15-16 School Year
Just a reminder that at the end of this school year all bus stops default back to the student’s home address. If you would like for your child to be dropped off or picked up next school year other than their home address the bus garage will need a new permission slip, from the parent or guardian, to change the students stops to somewhere other than their residence. Avoid the August 25th rush and you can start sending your letters to the bus garage on July 1st. You can fax them to 419-884-1821, or send requests to 103 Clever Lane, Lexington, Ohio 44904 Attention: Transportation.
We have already had to make numerous phone calls home to parents whose children are wearing inappropriate clothing. Remember that the shorts they wear must reach the mid-thigh. A good test for this is that they have to reach below the student’s fingertips as they hang their arms by their side. Also, students are not allowed to wear any shirt that their midriff is showing. Spaghetti straps are ok as long as they wear a jacket or a sweater over them. No tank tops, shirts with the sleeves cut out or mesh shirts. No opened toed shoes or shoes without backs. Many children turn ankles or scrape their feet as they play.
