CHS Final Exam Schedule Update

INFLUENZA (FLU)

What is the Flu?

The flu is an illness caused by flu viruses. The flu may make people cough and have a sore throat and fever. They may also have a runny or stuffy nose, feel tired, have body aches, or show other signs they are not well. The flu happens every year and is more common in the fall and winter. People of all ages can get the flu, from babies and young adults to the elderly. 
 
How does the flu spread?

People who have the flu can spread the virus by coughing or sneezing. Droplets released when a sick person coughs, sneezes, or talks can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby. The droplets can also be inhaled into the lungs. People may also catch the flu by touching their mouth or nose after touching something with the virus on it, such as doorknobs, tables or an infected person’s dirty hand. 

  
How long can a person with the flu spread the virus to other people? 
Most people may be able to spread the flu from 1 day before showing symptoms to 5-7 days after symptoms begin. Severely sick people or young children may be able to spread the flu longer.

 

 

If you are worried that your child or family member is showing symptoms of flu, please take them to the doctor. If you need help finding a doctor, your school health nurse can advise you.

Response by Jill Rowe Treasurer to a Recent Mailing in the District in Regards to School Finance and the Bond Issue Facts

Statement #1 – Did you know that the figures are on top of what you are currently paying.  While this statement is true.  The elementary buildings will be paid off in 2022 and your taxes will go down due to these buildings being paid off.

 

Statement #2 – Did you know your property taxes will go up due to reevaluation.  This statement is untrue.  Yes there is a reevaluation in 2018, however in the late 1970’s HB920 was passed.  This bill stated that voted millage cannot increase due to inflationary increases.  So as property is reevaluated the school district does not see an increase if the property values are increased.  The school district only sees an increase on 5.2 mills if property values are increased.  The remaining millage the school district receives does not increase.  The Ohio Department of Taxation rolls the millage back so the district does not see any increases.  For example the Permanent Improvement levy was passed in 1987 at 3.5 mills and the District collected around $420,000 on that levy.  Today the District still collects $420,000 on that levy.  Even though property rates have increased since 1987 the District is still collecting the same amount as when it was passed due to the HB920 law.

Calamity Days Calamity Days

The Crestwood Local School District currently has to make up four calamity days. The Crestwood Board of Education, last evening, passed a resolution to utilize Blizzard Bags to help offset school days missed this past winter.  Blizzard Bags are an option provided by the Ohio Department of Education for school districts to help make up as many as three instructional days during a school year. With the use of Blizzard Bags, the Crestwood Local Schools will only have to make up one day at the end of this school year.

Blizzard Bags are online or take-home lessons that students complete to make up a missed day of school. Assignments will be available online on our individual schools’ websites or as “take home” hard copy assignments for your child to complete beginning Monday, April 14.  Assignments are due two weeks after they are assigned.  For example, the first assignments will be due two weeks from Monday, April 14 which is Friday, April 25.   The second assignments will be assigned Monday, April 28 and will be due Friday, May 9.  The third assignments will be assigned Monday, May 12 and will be due Friday, May 23. 

If you have questions, please contact your child’s teacher or the Principal of your child’s school. We hope that the use of Blizzard Bags will be beneficial to your child’s education and success.


Since one additional day must be added at the end of the year, the last day of school for Crestwood students will now be June 6, 2014.

Dear Crestwood Community:

Community Focus Groups

Dear Community Members,

 

The Crestwood Board of Education would like to invite you to participate updating of the district's Strategic Plan.   Throughout the development of the plan, our community will be offered the opportunity to share their thoughts and suggestions in multiple community focus groups. A focus group is a guided group discussion. Focus groups are a good way to gather in-depth information about a community's thoughts and opinions on a topic. Cheryl Emrich, Executive Director from the Portage County Educational Service Center will be guiding focus group discussions on the following dates and locations:

We value your input into this process and together we look forward to making the Crestwood Local School District the best we can be.

Crestwood Bond Issue May 2, 2017

 

Crestwood High School is nearly 60 years old and is not conducive for learning and teaching in the 21st century.  The building is inefficient to operate, is poorly organized, lacks modern security features, and is not easily handicapped accessible. Crestwood Middle School is newer but does not provide the greatest educational opportunities our students need for their futures.

 

 

Crestwood Schools gathered input from the community and worked with experts and the State of Ohio to create a plan for our future.   This bond issue would replace our aging High School and Middle School. 

 

 

If the issue passes, the State of Ohio will pay for nearly 30% of the cost of the new school.  If we don’t pass, the funds will go to another community.

 

The issue means a new High School, on the existing site, with a 7-8 grade wing and a separate 9-12 grade wing.  It will also means two gymnasiums and an auditorium.

 

The new high school will be built using local construction service companies when possible, meaning our local tax dollars will stay in our community.

 

Crestwood High School receives $99,976.00 grant for health education and a service learning project

Crestwood High School in Mantua, OH,  is receiving a $ 99,976 service learning grant for its Health Professions and Affinity Community Program. 

 

The grant was funded by the State Farm Youth Advisory Board.

 

The youth advisory board is a made of 30 students, ages 17-20, from the across the United States.

 

The groups aims to annually implement $5 million-a-year to service learning initiatives that address issues that are important  to youth and its communities.

 

Crestwood’s HPAC program will address health and health education in the community through the acquisition of an aqua-ponic greenhouse at the high school.

 

The greenhouse uses a water system that recycles the nutrient rich water from a fish tank in order to grow plants and, in turn, uses the plant’s resources to help grow the fish. 

 

Food grown in the greenhouse will be donated to community members in need, with any excess being sold to support and sustain the Coalition for Community Care, the local food pantry.

Renewal – Permanent Improvement Levy – November 2016 – No New Taxes

In 1987, the Crestwood Local School District residents approved a 3.5-    mill permanent improvement levy. Proceeds from this levy can be used to purchase or repair those items in the school district that have a long term useful life.  Typically a five (5) year useful life or more is utilized when determining the use of these funds.  The money from a permanent improvement levy can be used to purchase school busses, school building equipment such as boilers, furnaces, hot water heaters, water fountains, light fixtures, technology, athletic equipment and band equipment, etc.  It can be used to replace or repair school roofs, cracked sidewalks, windows, as well as for the purchase of new textbooks, desks and instructional equipment.

Crestwood Bond Issue Talking Points

Crestwood Bond Issue Talking Points

Crestwood High School is nearly 60 years old and was not built for learning and teaching in the 21st century.  The building is inefficient to operate, is poorly organized, and is not handicapped accessible. Crestwood Middle School is newer but does not provide the latest educational opportunities our students need for their futures.

Crestwood Schools gathered input from the community and worked with experts and the State of Ohio to create a plan for our future.   This bond issue would replace our aging High School and Middle School.

 

If the issue passes, the State of Ohio will pay for nearly 30% of the cost of the new school.  If we don’t pass, the funds will go to another community.

 

The issue means a new High School, on the existing site, with a 7-8 grade wing and a separate 9-12 grade wing.  It will also mean two gymnasiums and an auditorium.

 

The new high school will be built using local construction service companies when possible, meaning our local tax dollars will stay in our community.
