Message Regarding School Safety & Security

Dear Parents,
As you are aware, it has been a difficult couple of weeks for the entire country and for everyone in the educational community, in particular.  Our hearts continue to go out to all of the victims and families that have been impacted and forever changed by these senseless acts of violence. 

As in the past, and after yet another mass casualty event in a school, there are calls for more stringent security measures. Conversations at the national, state and local level continue to focus on topics of gun legislation, background checks, mental health assessments, metal detectors, arming teachers, an increased police presence, response protocols, safety drills, and risk assessments…to name just a few.

To that end, the Ohio General Assembly passed House Bill 410, which supports a preventative approach to excessive absences and truancy. Beginning with the 2017-18 school year, several important changes have taken effect.
