Internet Safety Internet Safety
  • Is your 11-18 year old using Ask.fm or SnapChat?  Do you even know what these platforms are meant to do? (Spoiler alert:  neither one of these apps should exist anywhere in your home)
  • Are you aware that the overwhelming percentage of children are regular consumers of online pornography? And by the way, they don't think it's a big deal.
  • Did you know that your tweens and teens are regularly making it incredibly easy for sexual predators and "cyberbullies" to stalk them?
  • Did you know that if your child has an Instagram account - chances are they have more than ONE account?
  • Did you know that sexting is beginning in the 4th & 5th grade?
  • Did you know that chances are that your child has been the cyberbully at least a couple of times?

If any of these surprised you, come and learn more at the Internet Safety for Parents presentation.  See attached flyer.

Good morning. This is Julie Schmidt, Principal of Crestwood Middle School calling with some important reminders for our CMS families.


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.

Dear Parent/Guardian(s),

One of our most important jobs as educators is to provide a safe and secure learning atmosphere for your children.  In an attempt to ensure that our environment is drug free, we work with the Mantua Police Department and our School Resource Officer to schedule random searches of our building and grounds with drug dogs.  

This morning, while our middle school students were working inside their classrooms, our School Resource Officer, Sergeant Joe Urso and our drug dog, Diablo, searched the building.  As a result, we are pleased to report that our building is drug free.  We have shared with the staff and students what occurred today.  We will be having additional unannounced searches throughout the rest of the school year.

Educating your child in a safe environment is our top priority.  We would like to thank our School Resource Officer, Joe Urso, and his police dog, Diablo, for their assistance.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have at jschmidt@crestwoodschools.com, or at 330-357-8204.  

Our faculty and staff look forward to continuing to work to help keep your children safe and secure during school hours.



Julie Schmidt, Principal

If your student is uninsured or underinsured, please be sure to check the appropriate box on the consent form. Money collected from the insurance companies help fund this program. Regardless of your insurance coverage or what your insurance company pays, there is NO COST to you for the vaccine. Again, the date for our clinic is September 26th from 9:00-11:00, so please send your forms in as soon as possible. We look forward to seeing you at the clinic. Thank you!
