SHS Band COVID Updates - 8.14.2020

SHS Band Students/Parents/Guardians, 

We have just received our virtual school day schedule for the High School along with more concrete details regarding other logistics related to the first quarter.  The only way for us to facilitate successful live performances is to have in-person rehearsals, which this schedule does not help facilitate.  After careful consideration, we felt that a change in rehearsal schedule would best serve the members of the SHS Band to be as prepared as possible for what lies ahead.   I apologize that there is no perfect schedule to make everyone happy and appreciate your flexibility as we know that everything is fluid and could change at a moment’s notice.  Ultimately, we are happy to have the opportunity to make music together and hope to be able to perform for the community this year.

Sandusky City Schools Provides Backpack and School Supplies for All Incoming Kindergarten Students
Sandusky City Schools is excited to announce the Foundation for Success program. This program aims to help Kindergarten students at Sandusky City Schools prepare for a lifelong love of learning. This year as part of the program, with help from community partners, Sandusky City Schools will be providing every incoming Kindergarten student with a backpack and a kit of school supplies completely free of charge. The Foundation for Success program would not be possible without the generous donations from the Wightman-Wieber Foundation, For Love with Love, and the Dorn Foundation. With their commitment to helping our students, we are ensuring that the Blue Streak class of 2033 is beginning their education on a solid foundation. Kindergarten students will receive their backpack on the first day of school, with all of the school
supplies needed to get them started for the year.

Sign up for Free Books in Ohio with the Imagination Library!
The Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library is working to put more books in the hands of Ohio’s children and ensure that every student enters kindergarten ready to succeed. Imagination Library was started by country singer Dolly Parton and offers age-appropriate books to children from birth to age 5, regardless of parent income.

The Ohio Department of Education Office for Early Learning and School Readiness is encouraging all preschools, Head Start/Early Head Start programs, and childcare settings to share information about the Ohio Governor’s Imagination Library and encourage families to enroll into the free monthly book program.
Work Permits
How can students go about obtaining a work permit under Ohio’s Minor Labor Laws if schools are closed?

According to the Ohio Department of Commerce, if a minor has all necessary paperwork completed and is unable to get the permit processed due to school closure, the completed paperwork may itself stand in the place of the physically printed permit. Employers should keep the paperwork on file, just like they would the permit. The formal permit should be processed as soon as the school is reopened.

As a reminder, hour restrictions outlined in Ohio Revised Code Section 4109 are still in place for any week that was not a pre-planned school holiday (i.e., spring break) and the prohibited/hazardous occupation restrictions are still active.
