Search of FRHS by K-9 Units
  • Officers from local law enforcement agencies conducted a search of the high school premises with their respective K-9 units on Monday, May 10, 2021. The K-9 units search serves many important purposes for providing a safe academic environment for everyone connected with the educational system. It also serves as an appropriate training exercise for all participants, especially the dogs.

    Prior to the officers initiating the search, the faculty, students and staff were informed of the situation via the public address system and the building went into a “lockdown.” During this type of lockdown classroom teachers proceed with their normal course instruction so that the learning process is not interrupted. Our students and staff conducted themselves appropriately as directed.

Press Release 8-8-2020

Superintendents in Mercer County met with Governor Mike DeWine via phone conference on Saturday, August 8, 2020 along with the Mercer County Health District and Mercer Health. We were able to share how we are working together to prepare for the start of the 2020-2021 school year. Governor DeWine is most concerned about community spread and how this could impact our ability to return to all regular activities. We all want our schools, sports and music programs to continue to thrive so it’s important to consider how our community can help make this happen. 

We know that having our children in school and providing structure is vital to their academic success as well as their social and emotional wellness. We also recognize that returning to school five days a week will allow us to model and reinforce practices that will mitigate the spread of covid. We are committed to taking care of our students and staff as we return to school. We also recognize that it is important for us to model and provide opportunities to impact what our students are doing outside of school to stop the spread of covid. 

Additionally, we were informed that the written order for face coverings will be issued on Monday. Based on our conversation with Governor DeWine, we feel this order allows for practical implementation and local flexibility. We appreciated the opportunity to speak directly with Governor DeWine about the health and safety of our community and the importance of opening our schools this fall. We look forward to the 2020-2021 school year! 

District Re-Fortification Plan
  • FRLS will implement recommended safety protocols to the highest degree possible.

  • FRLS will work closely with the MCHD to promote safety in each school building.

  • FRLS will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when students and school district employees occupy school district facilities.

  • FRLS recognizes the need for consistency in areas of operations, while recognizing that individual differences in classroom sizes, school facilities, and building operations may lead to some inconsistencies.

Corona Virus Information / Update

Today, Sunday, March 22, 2020, the Ohio Director of Health, under the authorization of Governor DeWine, issued a stay at home order for the State of Ohio. Fort Recovery Local Schools will continue to serve as the primary PK-12, educational organization for our school community. On Monday, we will continue utilizing the Emergency Remote Learning Plan with no changes at this time. 

As previously stated, the first item on the Parents/Students tab of the district website is labeled CoronaVirus INFO / Emergency Remote Learning. It is there that you will find links, resources and information specific to the Fort Recovery ERL Plan. 

As we strive to meet the educational needs of our students, teaching staff members will continue to be available electronically each weekday through the current closure period, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and again from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Our entire school staff will provide responsive interaction from school or through their work-from-home connections. Please continue to monitor our website and social media pages for updates during this school closure period. 

School district emails will be the most direct line of communication for parents, guardians and students if your question is not addressed on our website and social media pages. Starting tomorrow, our district and school phones will remain connected, however, they will be used for incoming voicemail messages only. 

Last week, approximately 40% of our free and reduced students participated in our School Closure Lunch Program at the EMS building. We are waiting for further guidance from the state agencies on whether this service is permitted to continue under the “Stay at Home” order issued today. 

We, as a school district staff, are in our homes, as directed, ready to assist you in any way possible. 

Corona Virus Information / Update
March 13th Fort Recovery Local Schools’ Update during the Governor DeWine School Closure 

We received guidance from the State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Paolo DeMaria, this morning. During this state of emergency in Ohio, the expectation from the Ohio Department of Education is to have local school districts care for the development of the students using some form of alternate learning method. Fort Recovery Schools and the other six Mercer County Schools have a unified plan to provide virtual instruction during the closure period. 

Therefore, as previously reported, all K-12 students will report for school on Monday, March 16th for the last traditional school day in March of 2020. On Monday, our staff will share more information on the delivery of remote instruction, confirm specific login and password codes, and distribute chromebooks for home usage to grades 3-8. 

Tuesday, March 17th will be E-Day #2 and Wednesday, March 18th will be E-Day #3. Our staff will be at school and available for interaction for the E-Day lessons. They will also begin planning for Emergency Remote Learning starting on Thursday, March 19th. Emergency Remote Learning information is similar to E-Days but is more sustainable for the 12 school day period following the two remaining E-Days. Teachers will be available for responsive interaction during the normal school day hours only to assist our students with ERL. 

Further information related to co-curricular and extra-curricular practices / events will be shared once we have additional guidance from the Ohio High School Athletic Association. All Fort Recovery school facilities are closed for school related activities and non-school related activities from 3:30 p.m. on Monday, March 16th through and including Friday, April 3rd. This includes the closure of the Student Activity Center located at the high school. 

Plans for food services for free/ reduced lunch students during the closure are currently being developed. We know that our application to ODE for a pick-up lunch for free/ reduced lunch students will not be submitted until next week. Therefore, we know that this service will not be available for E-Day #2 and E-Day #3. 

We are limiting the access to the school buildings throughout the closure/ ERL phase. As always, please check into the office immediately upon your arrival on campus. We truly understand that this month will be challenging for all of us. 

Based on my eight months of experiences in our school district as your superintendent, I am confident that we can collectively make the most out of this situation for the benefit of all of our students.
