COLLECT BOXTOPS FOR THE MCDOWELL LIBRARY
Please help the McDowell Library collect Boxtops from General
Mills products. By collecting Boxtops, we raise money to buy books for our
Library. Currently, the Library is conducting a contest to encourage students
to bring in Boxtops. The raffle prizes are Cinemark movie passes, coupons for
free pizza from Cardo’s Pizza, Arby’s free meal coupons, 8 person free admission
pass to a Chillicothe Paints home game!!! The drawing will be May 15.
If you would like to help the Library’s efforts, please send Boxtops
with your student or mail to McDowell Middle School, 9579 Tarlton Road,
Circleville, OH 43113. If you have any questions, please contact Terry Borland,
McDowell Librarian at (740) 474-7538 ext. 1411 or email terry.borland @ loganelm.org.
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you know, Ohio House Bill 410 (HB410) was approved in the Ohio Legislative General Assembly in December 2016. The approved measure regarding changes to compulsory attendance laws went into effect for the 2017-18 academic school year in all Ohio school districts.
At the time our Student Handbooks were printed, the Ohio Department of Education had not released the Model Policy and Practices for HB 410. In our handbooks, we notified you of this delay and noted that additional attendance policies and practices would be released at a later date.
At this time, we are notifying you of an update to Logan Elm’s attendance policy. Students will be limited to five (5) parent excused absences per semester or ten (10) parent excused absences per school year. Once the limit of parent excused absence is reached, only School Excuses issued by a Healthcare Provider (ex: doctor, dentist, orthodontist, therapist) will be accepted to excuse an absence. The limit of parent excuses is not new; it has been the practice at Logan Elm schools prior to the passage of HB410.
If you have any questions, please contact your student’s school office.
