School News and Information

Happy Friday!  Thank you to all the families who attended conferences.  We sincerely appreciate our PTG, families, and local businesses who donated to our staff meals on our conference nights!  With spring break just around the corner, we wanted to provide you with some important information and updates. The last day of school before the break will be on Friday, March 24th. Classes will resume on Monday, April 3rd.


When we return to school on Monday, April 3rd we will have back-to-back 4-day weeks.  There is no school on Friday, April 7th, and Monday, April 10th.

This will be the last E-News until after Spring Break.  Thank you for your ongoing support, and we hope you have a wonderful spring break with your family.

Contacting Legislators

For those of you that attended PTG on Tuesday evening, I talked about contacting state legislators and the governor about school funding.  Holli Hansel has placed the information on the TSD website.  Please consider taking a few minutes to advocate for fair school funding for Ohio.  The state of Ohio's funding for public schools has been found unconstitutional multiple times.  I will be reaching out to our legislators and please consider taking a few moments to do the same. 


Please consider writing to our Ohio Board of Education, and other state leaders and elected officials.  Check out the talking points and letters we've shared on our district website.
