It's Cold and Flu Season....Tips for Parents from the School Nurse

 We are currently experiencing an increased rate of absenteeism of both students and staff.  This is not unusual as we are in the cold and flu season.  However, here are a couple of tips that will help all of the students in Bryan City Schools.

            - Please do not return your child to school until he/she is fever free for at least 24 hours.  That means fever free without the aid of Tylenol or another fever reducing medication.  A fever would be a body temperature over 100 degrees orally.

            - Please do not return your child to school until vomiting and/or diarrhea has ceased for 24 hours.

Reminder for Reporting Absences

A reminder that parents are to call the school by 10:00 AM in the event your child is absent from school.  If the school does not receive a call by that time, our office will attempt to get in touch with you or anyone listed as an emergency contact.  This procedure helps us comply with the Missing Child Law.  For your convenience, an answering machine is available before and after office hours to report absences.

CENSUS DAY 2010 - APRIL 1
The U.S. Census has mailed census forms nationwide during the last few weeks in anticipation of Census Day 2010 – Thursday, April 1 – the day everyone residing in the United States must be counted. Every year, the federal government can allocate more than $300 billion to states and communities based, in part, on census data. This, of course, affects school budgets – including the distribution of Title 1 funding – and college grant and loan programs. Community planners use census data to determine where to build new schools, develop public transportation and create new roads. Additionally, census results affect our voting districts and state representation in Congress. A complete count in Ohio is critical, so please remind families in your community about this important civic responsibility.

A Message from the Superintendent

First and foremost, our thoughts and heartfelt sympathies go out to the victims’ families, school district and the entire Connecticut community that experienced the most recent school shooting.  This type of event certainly causes many of us to pause and reflect on the many things that we may normally take for granted.

It is important to note that Bryan City Schools have worked collaboratively and in cooperation with the Bryan City Police Department and the Williams County Sheriff’s Office, as well as first responders in the development and implementation of safety and security strategies.

Bryan City Schools will be providing assistance to local families looking for resources and additional information to assist in coping with this tragedy.  With the assistance of our Crisis Intervention Team, resources and websites will be posted here for families to access at home as needed.


While we understand that an event like this can happen anywhere, Bryan City Schools, in cooperation with many other agencies and entities, continue to be diligent about providing as safe a learning environment as possible.
