Immunization Reminder

Students in Melissa Efantis’s class at Park Elementary practice perseverance as they problem solve using Reflect-It pattern cards. The students use mirrors and tiles to further their understanding of geometry.

​This is a reminder that incoming seventh graders and incoming seniors for the 2018-2019 school year are required by law to be vaccinated against meningitis. Please keep this in mind as you make your child’s annual physical exam appointment and ask them to provide you with documentation that you can give the school. Ohio Revised Code states: One (1) dose of meningococcal vaccine is required prior to entry into the 7th grade. A second (2nd) dose of meningococcal vaccine is required prior to entry into the 12th grade. The second (2nd) dose must be administered on or after the 16th birthday with at least eight (8) weeks between the first (1st) and second (2nd) dose.  If the first (1st) dose of meningococcal vaccine was administered after the 16th birthday, a second (2nd) dose is not required. Please contact your school nurse to check your child’s immunization record if you are unsure whether your child has met this requirement or if you have any questions.

High School Curriculum Night

In order to better prepare you and your child to the academic offerings at Chardon High School, we will be hosting a Curriculum Evening on February 1st at 6:30 p.m.  in the Chardon High School Gymnasium. This evening also coincides with our Parent Teacher Conferences.At this meeting, we will provide an overview of the curricular offerings, and course delivery options (including College Credit Plus), and an overview of the scheduling process.  Several of our high school teachers and counselors will be on hand that evening to share information and answer questions regarding their curriculum and course offerings.  Representatives from local colleges will also be present to answer questions about College Credit Plus. School Counselors will be presenting information to students regarding scheduling and course offerings later in February at grade-level assemblies.
