School News – by Steve Poe, Superintendent  

This year’s motto is, “Celebrate Success, Celebrate You!”  With this motto in mind, we begin this school year with a CELEBRATION!

PARENTS AND STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO BE ON THE FRONT LAWN THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL, SEPTEMBER 3, BY 8:00AM.  REFRESHMENTS WILL BE SERVED, INTRODUCTIONS MADE, AND A HUMAN TUNNEL WILL BE FORMED FOR THE ELEMENTARY STUDENTS TO GO THROUGH!

In the event the weather does not cooperate with our celebration, everyone will move to the gymnasium.

Parents are encouraged to attend the Put-in-Bay School Open House on Thursday, September 12 from 3:21 to 4:30pm.  This is an opportunity to meet the teachers and hear about the academic goals for the year.  Refreshments provided, along with free babysitting.

Our school’s attendance policy remains the same as last year, adhering to the state regulations in House Bill 410.   Instead of counting days absent, schools must keep track of hours absent.  Excessive absences are reported to the Ottawa County Juvenile Court.  The new definition for excessive absences is:  absent 38 or more hours in one month or 65 or more hours in one school year.   Prior to filing a complaint with the court, parents will be notified, followed by an absence intervention plan.  Complete details of House Bill 410 were sent home in last month’s mailing.  Parents are advised to make appointments and plan vacations on the following dates that school will not be in session:

  • October 21                             (Appointment Day)
  • November 27 – Dec 1            (Thanksgiving)
  • December 21 – January 5       (Christmas Break)
  • February 22 – March 1           (Winter Break)
  • April 11 – April 14                  (Spring Break)
  • May 23 – 25                           (Memorial Day Weekend)

School days continue to start at 8:00am.  Students are asked to arrive at 7:50am.  Primary elementary students will begin lunch dismissal at 11:50, followed by grades four to six.  Grades 7 – 12 students will be dismissed for lunch at noon.  All students are to return from lunch at 12:50 to begin classes at 1:00.   Elementary students will be dismissed after school at 3:16, while high school students will end the day at 3:21.

Don’t forget to check our website, www.put-in-bay.k12.oh.us, for the latest school announcements.  We will utilize our “School Messenger” system to notify parents of important announcements and school closings.
