Connector Construction Update
Construction on the connector project will begin on Monday, April 21st. Equipment and construction fencing will be moved in on Monday. Actual construction and blocking off doorways between the buildings will not take place until later in the week (presumably Wednesday or Thursday). The doors between both buildings will be blocked off and not accessible during construction for safety reasons. Alternate plans will be in place for any evacuations of the buildings. Traffic flow in the parking lots will be unaffected (unless otherwise specified at a future date) as the material storage and construction traffic will be behind the school. For those entering the school for events, please utilize the main entrance (A1) located in the new building or the entrance to the high school by the auditorium steps. For those needing to access the high school during the school day, please check into the main office in the new building, as per normal procedure, and you will be directed to the high school from there. Teachers and students will be instructed on Tuesday morning regarding foot traffic between buildings during the school day. If you should have any concerns or questions regarding the construction situation please contact the school at 419-963-3415. Please note that all offices are closed on Friday April 18th.

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.
