Reminder: Peebles Elementary has a new arrival and dismissal time this year!!! The doors will open for students at 8:30 a.m. They will report to their homerooms for breakfast and the tardy bell will ring at 9:00 a.m. For dismissal, pick-ups will dismiss first. Parents who are picking up need to have their numbers displayed in the window and cannot be lining up any earlier than 2:00 p.m. Pick-ups will start coming out to the cars at approximately 2:40-45 p.m. The early town bus will leave the elementary at approximately 3:05 p.m. and the regular bus riders will dismiss between 3:10-3:15 p.m. Please bear with us, as these are approximate times until we see realistic arrival times for buses. We are excited to have all of our kiddos back here tomorrow!!! Thank you for entrusting us with your most precious gifts!!!!
As you all are aware, masks (not face shields) have been state mandated by the governor of Ohio. This is a requirement for attending school. If your child has no access to masks or family cannot obtain a mask, one will be provided to him/her upon entering the school. If you refuse to comply with this mandate, unfortunately, we have no option but to request that you enroll in our district's Option 2 (Adams Virtual Academy or AVA). If your child has an extenuating medical condition that prohibits him/her from wearing a mask, the doctor's statement indicating the medical reason MUST be provided to the school and reviewed by the Adams County Health Commissioner/Department for approval/validation. Only upon approval/validation, will your child then be excused from the mask mandate. Please keep in mind that by not wearing a mask, your child is considered at risk for airborne pathogens/germs. If you plan to provide medical documentation, please do so prior to the first day of school as there must be time for submission to the Health Department for review and approval. Otherwise, your child will be required to wear the mask until the approval/validation is granted. The first day of school is Wednesday, August 19th.
All forms for students are to be completed online this year. Please use this link if your child is a returning student from last year to update your child's information online. We will not be sending home paper copies of enrollment forms, emergency medical forms, etc. They are all included in this online update. https://cas.ovsd.us/cas_AdamsCntyOH/login If your child is a new enrollee, access the registration gateway via this link: https://www.ovsd.us/o/ovsd/page/district-enrollment--2 ALL parents are asked to fill out a lunch form.
