Lost and Found
Our lost and found is overflowing! If your child is missing any items, please have them check the lost and found. Please put names in coats and other items as well, this helps get them back to their owners.
Please check out the link for AR on our website. Parents can sign up for the Home Connect option to see what their child is reading and testing in AR.
Reminder that all spirit wear forms are due by November 25. Forms were sent home with all students or you can order online @ www.alphathreadsoh.com
All Spirit Wear will be in before the holiday break.
Background Check information:
All volunteers must have a background check on file with our superintendent’s office. Volunteers include adults that help in the classroom, attend field trips, or attend celebrations or end of the year events (4th grade luau, 5th grade Bon Voyage, 3rd grade picnic etc..).
Here is the link to our Clermont County Educational Service Center with any information you may need about background checks. https://www.ccesc.org/bci-fbi-background-checks
Background checks are valid for 5 years and remain on file with the school district for that time.
Please make sure your child’s balances are paid. The Free/Reduced Lunch application is available on the Parent Portal via Freedom Cafe.
Please remember to check your child’s lunch account via the Parent Portal. Parents can sign up for email alerts for balances and you can also check to see when and what your child is buying. Please review our current lunch policy for students who owe more than $10.00
