Community Update from Superintendent Hlasko
August 29, 2014
I hope this quick update during our Fair Break finds you doing well, enjoying the fair, and staying as cool as possible! A huge round of applause to all of the CR students representing themselves and our school so well at the fair! I just wanted to send out a few quick snippets prior to the big game on Friday night…
Congrats to our boys’ soccer team for a win in their opening NCOSA match. The boys are now 2-1 overall on the season and looking strong...good job guys!
Our girls’ soccer team fought hard and tied Mohawk last night. Congratulations to Becca Schutz for being nominated as a player of the week on JJHuddle!
The volleyball team had a nice victory this week against USV. Congrats to them and Kendra Tuttle for also being nominated as a player of the week on JJHuddle!
Finally, good luck to our football team, band, and cheerleaders tonight against Bluffton! They’ve all worked extremely hard this offseason and are ready to take the stage...Go Hornets! I invite you to come out a little early tonight (around 7:15) to see Bluffton's superintendent and myself get wet prior to the game for a good cause…
Please note that the building connector, which will also, eventually, serve as a ticket gate for football games WILL NOT BE open and available for use Friday night. We have not yet received the occupancy/use permit and, as such, cannot utilize it. We apologize for the delay...and are anxious to use it very soon! For Friday night’s game the ticket gates will be at either end of the school buildings, as they were last year.

Cory-Rawson Welcomes New Faculty Members
At its regular meeting on Thursday, June 19, the Board of Education hired new faculty members in three areas. Joining the faculty this fall will be Elizabeth James, who will take over the Vocational Agriculture Department and the FFA. Ms. James is a native of Hancock County and most recently completed both her undergraduate degree and Masters Degree from Ohio State. Anthony Taylor will be taking over as the K-12 Vocal Music Instructor. Mr. Taylor is originally from Lima, and just completed his degree at Ohio Northern University. Nathan Westenbarger, a McComb native will be teaching 7th and 8th grade Math and has accepted the position as Head Football Coach for the 2014 season. All three of these new faculty members are already at work preparing for the coming school year. We are truly fortunate to have all three of these talented and enthusiastic individuals joining our faculty this year!
County Health Department Reminds Parents About Vaccinations!
It is once again time to start thinking about vaccinating your children for the upcoming school year. Any child entering kindergarten or 7th grade will need vaccine updates before the start of the 2013-2014 school year to be in compliance with the Ohio Revised Code guidelines. Tdap is required for the students entering the 7th. We continue to be concerned about the resurgence of pertussis (whooping cough) which is the reason for the Tdap requirement. We have had 6 cases of whooping cough diagnosed in rural Hancock County in the past six months. Along with the Tdap vaccine, we would encourage you to consider the meningitis and chickenpox vaccines for any child age 11 through 18. These vaccines are available at most physician’s offices or here at the Hancock County Health Department. The Hancock County Health Department is now a vaccine provider from most local insurance companies and bill insurance for services provided. If you are interested in scheduling for vaccinations at our office please call 419-424-7869. The Health Department encourages you to call and get these scheduled now. Please don’t wait until August as our clinics are usually filled to capacity.
