|The Ohio Department of Health has added a new immunization requirement for all current 6th and 11th grade students that should be completed prior to the upcoming school year. In other words, by the start of the school year this coming August, 2016, those students who will be in the 7th and 12th grade will be required to be vaccinated against meningococcal disease. Students entering 7th grade are already required to receive the Tdap vaccine, so they will now need this additional vaccine which up to now was optional. This is a new requirement for 12th graders, but the vaccine has been available for many years. Please start making plans now to schedule an appointment to meet this new requirement. Doctor’s offices and Health Departments are always very busy before school starts in the fall, so schedule an appointment as soon as possible to avoid delays.|
DISTRICT/SCHOOL EMERGENCIES, DELAYS/CLOSINGS:
Fostoria City Schools utilizes the School Announcement messaging system for communications with district families – emergencies, school delays/closings, announcements and other information. If you miss the call, please follow the link included in the message left on your phone or go to the FCS district website (www.fostoriaschools.org) and/or FCS Facebook page for the information that was in the School Announcement message. Note: The number 419-436-6402 is an unattended dedicated line assigned to the School Announcement program and is not a call back number.
School delays/closings are also available on the Review Times website, WTOL 11, WFIN, WTVG 13, WNWO 24 and the WFOB radio station.
Parents/Guardians can access their “dashboard” in School Announcement to update their contact preferences (for the messaging system only*). Please log into your account at: www.myschoolannouncement.com and click on the “dashboard” icon () to update your phone numbers and add an email address as another means of receiving messages from the district.
Parents/Guardians can “opt out” of receiving non-emergency communications, (i.e., delays/closings, fundraisers, student activities, etc.) by completing the “Notification System Options” form available in the office of your child’s school and on the district website (Parent/Student Forms).
*Parents/Guardians needing log in assistance can contact the office their child attends. Also, please note that updating contact information in the School Announcement system does not update your contact information for your child at the school level.
