Children of parents who talk to their teens about drugs are up to 50% less likely to use.
An effort is underway across Ohio to prevent drug use among Ohio’s most vulnerable citizens – our children. Governor John R. Kasich and First Lady Karen W. Kasich have launched Start Talking! to give parents, guardians, educators and community leaders the tools to start the conversation with Ohio’s youth about the importance of living healthy, drug-free lives. A majority of substance-free adolescents credit their parents for the decision not to use illegal substances. Likewise, teachers and other authority figures can have a similar influence on youth and their decision-making.

Parents, mentors and peers can make a difference just by talking to the young people in their lives about drug use. Please Start Talking!

Parents, Important information from the Ohio School Boards Association:
The U.S. Department of Education, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and Ad Council have partnered to create a public service campaign, Absences Add Up.  The campaign provides parents resources to help ensure their children attend school each day.  For more information, visit AbsencesAddUP.org 
Mission Possible Project

-learn about a wide variety of careers
-evaluate their individual traits and interests, and how those relate to jobs in our labor market
-learn about the education, skills, and other training needed to enter different career fields We are requesting your help with a specific project related to this effort….

Our goal is to ensure the safety and well-being of each and every student. District buses will only transport students to and from their home address. The only exceptions to this policy are instances of shared parenting, or specific days when your child should go to a caregiver. For these exceptions, we ask that you provide the office of the school where your child(ren) attend with a schedule of these times for the remainder of the school year.
