HS Guidance Announcements

Mark your calendars!

A financial aid representative will discuss FASFA information on Tuesday, October 25 from 6-7 pm in the High School library. The representative will be discussing the financial aid process and answering all questions related to completion of the FASFA forms. Other grade levels are welcome to attend also. Keep in mind the priority deadline for filing the FASFA has moved up this year to December 1, 2016, for 2017 graduating seniors.

Fredericktown High School is very committed to increasing its college admissions and placement rate and ACT profile and will again host a six-hour, comprehensive seminar for our students for just $20 each on December 5. The price includes the seminar, a comprehensive textbook, lunch, and online testing access after the session. Similar programs costs hundreds of dollars per student. Please register in the guidance office by November 28. More information will be sent home with students soon. Also, the on time registration deadline for the December 10 ACT is November 4. Please visit www.actstudent.org to register for the ACT. It makes perfect sense to take this class and then take the ACT less than a week later! In addition, the ACT will be required, free of charge, to all 11th grade students this coming spring and will take place during the school day.

PTO Fundraiser

Welcome Back Cookout

The Elementary held a Welcome Back to School Cookout on August 26th, featuring locally grown produce and beef.  The Knox County Cattlemen and Knox County Farm Bureau helped sponsor the event.  Dumbaughs Sweetcorn donated sweet corn, Owl Creek Produce donated tomatoes, onions, and watermelon, and M & M Produce donated tomatoes.  The burgers were purchased from Dee Jay's Butchering.  Mr. Thompson and Mr. Chrispin were the grill masters, cooking 550 burgers!  Huge thank you to our sponsors, the kitchen staff, and Mrs. Gregg for organizing the third annual event.  

SaferOH Tip Line

Fredericktown Schools is pleased to announce that we are now utilizing the the SaferOH tip line that will accept both calls and texts 24 hours a day for schools that register for the service.  This tip line, in conjunction with the Ohio Department of Public Safety are launching allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student. Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up.

Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts in the Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) Unit.  When action is needed, the TAP Unit immediately forwards information to local school officials, local law enforcement agencies and others, if necessary. TAP Unit analysts always follow up quickly with the affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure that the incident is investigated, action is taken and the outcome is tracked. 

The assurance that their calls or texts cannot be traced and that serious, proper action will be taken to end the threat is helping to persuade young people to take a stand against school violence.
