Mr. Sauner, Principal

Alan Mikovich,

Assistant principal,

District Athletic

Administrator

Hello Western Reserve Families, First, I’m excited to enter my first year as the head principal of the Middle School and High School, considering this opportunity a real honor and privilege. I wish for everyone to know that they have my full commitment to working with our dedicated staff to provide the best educational experience for our students and families. As your principal, I will strive to establish a clear line of communication internally and externally, as communication is a vital key to success in a school system. Parent involvement is also vital to a child’s success, and we ask that all parents continue to play an active role in their education. For that reason, I want parents and students to know that I will maintain an open-door policy where everyone should always feel welcome to come to me with anything they feel needs discussed. Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions, concerns, or input at any time. Our staff recognizes and embraces the role they play in helping children reach their full potential; they do not take the responsibility lightly. They believe all students can be successful and this belief drives the work they do on a daily basis. We are eagerly anticipating a rewarding and successful 2020 - 2021 school year for our Blue Devil students and families. With that being said, we are in the business of educating, our first priority is the safety of our students and our employees. Be assured, we have been working diligently on our 2020- 2021 Restart Plans. Obviously, Our desire is to return to school as normal (traditional) with enhanced safety and cleaning procedures. However, we must be proactive and be prepared during these ever-changing times to continue educating our students if and when circumstances change, as predicted, throughout the year related to the health and safety of our students and employees. I encourage our parents to frequently visit our webpage and follow our social media for up to date and accurate information. Everyone must understand that our priority is to keep everyone safe while not making life more difficult for our parents. Each family situation is uniquely different. We fully understand your varied concerns about health and safety, distance learning, the importance of face-to-face instruction, parents needing to work, the economy, and all of the other unexpected consequences of not being in school or being in school in a traditional method. As we continue the 2020-2021 Restart planning process, we will keep you updated and that information will be available through our district website. Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for ALL of our students and employees during these challenging times. Sincerely, Michael L.

Some important reminders are provided below: o There are to be no holes in jeans in which skin is showing. o Headphones are not to be worn during the school day (halls, cafeteria, or classrooms) unless a teacher gives permission during class period. o Joggers May be worn in Khaki or denim design only. o Keep in mind that all other shorts and pants must have a button and fly closure. o Elastic waistband, pants or shorts and stretch pants are not permitted.

ATTENDANCE Given the current situation with COVID-19, it is quite possible that some attendance procedures/policies could change, but as of right now they remain unchanged. All student attendance and tardies reset at the semester break. This means that the students start on a fresh slate.

When a student is absent, the family must call the school, 330-547- 4100 (Option #3), between 7:30 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to report the student's absence.

MORNING STUDENT DROP-OFF Car riders can now enter the school building at 7:20 in the front entrance and they must report to the cafeteria until 7:30 when the rest of the students are allowed entry. This has been done in order to minimize the traffic buildup in the drop off zone in front of the school in the morning. The times and procedures could be modified as part of the district restart plan for the upcoming fall. AFTER SCHOOL PICK UP If you are picking up a student after school in the front of the school please pull as far forward as you are able to. There are some days when traffic backs up and we would like to keep that build up to a minimum.
