Dear Middle School Families,
This has been an eventful end to the school year and one I hope we don’t repeat. We appreciate your patience and hope that we can learn face-to-face in the fall. We are in the process of planning for a variety of scenarios to start the 2020-2021 school year and details will be shared once we’re given clear direction from the state level.
Final Grade Reports: Enclosed you will find your child’s final grade report for the 2019-2020 school year. You will notice that we shifted to pass/fail (P/F) for the fourth quarter and consequently, did not determine a second semester average grade as a result of the remote learning. Additionally, no work habits grade was calculated for the fourth quarter.
Unpaid Fines & Fees Notice: If you receive an Unpaid Fines & Fees notice, the reasons are described on the slip indicating that a fee, fine, or school equipment is outstanding. The office is open 8:00AM - 2:00PM to receive payment for these obligations or to answer any questions you may have. The middle school/high school office will close for the summer at noon on Friday, June 5, 2020.
Opening Knight 2020: Opening Knight will operate in an open-house format for middle and high school families next year on Monday, August 31. Details on this event will be mailed to families in August. The first day of school for 2020-2021 is Tuesday, September 8. On the reverse side, you should find the middle school student supply list for next year.
Incoming Seventh Graders:
- Immunizations: The State of Ohio requires students to have the Tdap and meningitis (meningococcal) vaccinations updated by the start of seventh grade. This can be taken care of either at the health department or with your family physician.
- Outdoor Education at Camp Nuhop: We are planning for our seventh grade outdoor education camp at Camp Nuhop to take place November 2-6, 2020 if the conditions of the pandemic allow. The cost for the five day trip is $230 and is payable in two installments. More information will be provided in the fall.
Good luck to our eighth graders as they move into high school and wishes to all for an enjoyable and safe summer!
