Winter walking hours will begin on October 31st and run until March 30th. The school will be open to walkers from 3:30 pm-9:00 pm on Mondays through Thursdays. However, the school will remain locked on days when school is not in session.

New Traffic Pattern for the E/MS Building
 With the support of the Fort Recovery Local Schools Board of Education, the district has been able to add an additional 55 parking spots at the Elementary/Middle School building. Because of this, effective Monday, October 3, we will be implementing a new traffic flow pattern. Please see the attached map for the appropriate direction to be taken. We appreciate your patience during this time of change.


Thank you,

Updated Requirements of Immunizations

Dear Fort Recovery Community,


The State of Ohio now has updated requirements of immunizations for your 7th-12th grade student.  Beginning this school year, students entering 7th grade will need to have one dose of meningococcal (serogroups A, C, W and Y) vaccine in addition to the current requirement of having one dose of the Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis) vaccine.


Students entering the 12th grade will need to have a second dose of meningococcal vaccine. The second dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday. If the first dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second dose is not required.


For more information on the meningococcal vaccine:

Measures That Matter
The Mercer County Public Schools in cooperation with the Mercer County ESC developed a profile report that shares information regarding the quality of the schools in Mercer County.  This profile is being distributed to all residents of Mercer County.
This report is planned to share the important, valuable aspects of what our schools offer the Mercer County communities.  The Mercer County Profile Flyer is a quick read foldout that highlights the factors that make our schools great.
