If your child is absent from school, we strongly urge you to call the Main Office before 9:00 a.m. at 440-439-4227 Your child's teachers will be notified of the absence. Please state the reason and anticipated length of this absence. We ask that you do this for the safety of your child. We will contact you if your child is listed on the absence sheet and we have not heard from you. Upon your child's return to school, please send an absence excuse. Students are responsible for the timely completion of work missed due to absences.
Transportation of our students is a large, complex operation. Completion of a 'Change in Transportation' form and approval from the Transportation Department are required if a parent/guardian desires a change from the regular bus or the original stop. For a one-day change, students are permitted to change transportation arrangements with written permission from a parent/guardian. All requests must be submitted to the Main Office for approval by the principal before 3:00 p.m.
We encourage parents/guardians to administer medication before and after school; however, if a student must bring medication to school, the following requirements must be met:
The parent/guardian and the child's physician must complete a request form before any prescription or non-prescription medication can be given to your child at school.
All medication must be in the original, childproof container.
Each container must have an affixed and legible label with the child's name, name of the medication, dosage, and time of administration.
A new request must be made each school year and, as necessary, for changes in the medication order.
The medication should be brought to the main office by the parent/guardian.
Parent Notification System:
Each week, an automated telephone and e-mail message wll be sent to families announcing upcoming events and activities. Anyone wishing to change the telephone number of e-mail address should contact the Main Office.

Students in grades kindergarten through two are assessed using the Ohio Department of Education Diagnostic Tests in the fall and the spring. They are also assessed each quarter using the computerized STAR Reading and STAR math assessment tools and teacher made assessments for the math and language arts essential skills. The computerized Measure of Academic Progress (MAP) test for Reading/Language Arts is given to second graders three times annually. MAP provides students, parents/guardians and teachers with accurate assessments of students' progress in mastering basic skills, which align closely with grade-level content standards established by the Ohio Department of Education. Parents receive information about their child's performance on these assessments during parent-teacher conferences. For additional information, go to the Ohio Department of Education's website: www.ode.state.oh.us and type in 'Academic Content Standards' in the keyword search box.
