Prepay Student Meal Accounts ONLINE!
Based on suggestions from many parents that they would like to be able to add money to their child's meal account online, we have now added this feature. Parents can add money to a child's meal account online or check the balance on a child's account by using the website. A detailed instruction guide for creating your parent account is available. If you choose to add money to your child's account, you will need a major debit or credit card, or an existing PayPal account. Even if you do not wish to make online payments, creating a parent account will allow you to monitor the balance left in your child's account so that you can know when you need to send in payments and you will be able to view your child's meal purchasing history. When student meal accounts are prepaid, the lunch line moves much faster, giving students more time to eat and less time waiting in line.

Ohio Achievement Tests – What are they and how can I help my child?
The Ohio Achievement tests are required assessments that measure students on what they know and are able to do in mathematics, reading, science, social studies and writing. Each year beginning with third grade and going through eighth grade, students will take Ohio Achievement tests in various content areas. At the high school level, the Ohio Graduation Test (OGT) is administered and is a requirement for graduation.

See the Guidance Department pages on this site to get test dates and other information.

There are several web resources that you can refer to for further information and that can help prepare your child for these tests.
