Virtual Athletic Signing

Mr. Daley with a senior and her Class of 2020 yard sign Caps and Gowns and Senior Yard Signs Passed Out to the Class of 2020

Dear Bulldog Class of 2020 and Families, 

 

We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe during these very challenging times.  Prior to Governor DeWine’s decision to keep schools closed for the remainder of the year, we had been working and preparing for the possibility of the closure for some time, however we did not want to make any premature decisions.  Unfortunately, as we had been planning and discussing only for the possibility that the governor would close the schools for the year, that decision is now a reality. With the continuation of no large personal gatherings into the foreseeable future, we have had to put a few things on indefinite hold. Prom, picnics, etc. are not cancelled but indefinitely postponed at this time.  If we are able to host such events in the near future, we will make sure to get the information to everyone ahead of time.  We are heartbroken over all events and activities affected.
