School Safety Announcement

Your child's safety is the most important thing to the staff of Fredericktown Local Schools. Recently, in central Ohio, there has been an uptick in prank phone calls to schools claiming that active shooters are on school campuses. These fake phone calls are called "swatting" and attempt to induce chaos while dispatching large numbers of first responders to a particular location. 

Fredericktown Schools takes every threat seriously. We will respond accordingly and would like to remind you of our procedures and policies. If our schools receive such a call, we would immediately have our SRO and administrative staff investigate while ensuring our students are safe. We will communicate via phone to update you about the situation and ask that you do not come to the school. In an emergency situation, we would be on lockdown, and you would not be able to enter the building. If we need to evacuate the school and move students to an alternate location, the school will notify you of the pick-up location and the procedures for picking up your student.

We are constantly training staff in safety procedures and protocols in order to keep our students safe. Fredericktown Local Schools works closely with the Fredericktown Police Department and the Fredericktown Fire Department to make sure our emergency procedures are up-to-date and vetted by professionals. 

Please reach out to your child's school principal or the district office with any questions. 

District Calendar Revised

Dear Freddie Families,

I want to thank each of you, our teachers, support staff, administrators, and the Board of Education for a fantastic start to the new school year. Watching our kids achieve, compete, and perform over the past several weeks has been a pleasure. They give us so much to be proud of and another reason why it is great to be a Freddie!

Here, you will find a Revised 2022-2023 District Calendar, which reflects a cancellation of the scheduled monthly late arrivals. Students will now attend a full day of instruction on those days. You will also find that there will be no classes for students on Monday, February 6, 2023, as we will be utilizing this day for teacher and staff professional development.

By eliminating the late arrivals, our objective is to help ease the disruption it places on our students and families. In addition, by utilizing a full-day dedicated to professional development, we can provide focused, high-quality learning opportunities for our teachers and staff.

Again, thank you for your tremendous support and flexibility. Together we will continue to make this an excellent year for all our students.

-- Gary Chapman, Superintendent
