Hello families, this is Kraig Hissong with a couple of announcements. First, as a reminder, tomorrow, Friday, October 30th, students do not have school. Tomorrow, staff will be participating in Professional Development and, therefore, students will not report to school. Next, if you have not received information from your child about Parent Teacher Conferences, please contact the office or your child’s homeroom teacher for information about different options for conferences. Last, there has been a lot of discussion about the increase in COVID cases in Ohio this fall and the concern that this could impact school remaining open and on a regular schedule. So far, WL-S has had two positive student cases and one positive staff case of COVID since the beginning of September. Overall, these are very low numbers, less than 1/2 of one percent have had COVID at WL-S since September. In speaking with both Logan and Champaign County Health Departments, the health commissioners are not concerned about the spread of COVID in schools as much as they are during social gatherings among family and friends, when people congregate in less formal environments. The health commissioners have stated that the procedures schools have in place are working based on the small number of cases and very limited spread. If one or both of our counties turn Red, it would not automatically determine that our district would go on a hybrid or remote instructional plan. They would look at cases within the school to make that determination. I want to thank our students and staff for your hard work in helping to keep each other safe by wearing masks and keeping our school clean. Governor DeWine also mentioned today that many people are getting COVID burnout, but it is important that we continue to be cautious and wear masks when we are around anyone outside of our families. Again, No school tomorrow, enjoy your weekend, and we will see students on Monday.
Thank you and have a good evening

West Liberty-Salem Key Club sponsored a spooky afternoon of pumpkin painting to get in the Halloween spirit! Over 120 high school students, from all grades, signed up to paint during their home room/lunch periods! There was no competition, just a friendly afternoon outside, getting their creativity out, and enjoying some time with friends. Mr. McGill, Mrs. Smith and a few other volunteers helped manage paint supplies, supervise and encouraged students to join in the fun. It’s not often that our high school students have time to engage in holiday activities during school, and we were overwhelmed by the amount of students who wanted to participate. They painted everything from spooky ghosts to witches, and abstracts with color. This definitely won’t be the last event like this! Special thanks to Molly Smith and Key Club for organizing the event, Mrs. Seymour’s class for donating brushes and paint supplies and Tom Wygal and Jake Vitt for unloading over 150 pumpkins Friday evening!view image
