The holiday season is a busy time for Walnut Township students and teachers. Academically we will be nearing the end of the 1st semester. Activities at our schools are numerous. Concerts, basketball games, club meetings are just a few of the activities taking place. The annual “White Christmas” community service project put on by our seniors in cooperation with the Lion’s Club and other community sponsors will keep our seniors and staff busy!
We our students and staff have been going through extensive training in safety and security. We are working closely with the Fairfield County Sheriff’s Department and the Millersport Police to implement the “ALICE” method of safety/security. The ALICE acronym stands for “Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate”. Deputies from the sheriff’s department have been leading our staff and students in the training. I encourage you to ask your sons and daughters about the training. It is my hope that they can tell you what the ALICE method entails. If you have further questions, do not hesitate to call me or our building principals.
As we enter the Holiday Season, it is my hope that all are able to spend joyous times with friends and family. Winter break begins on Monday, December 22. Students return to classes on Monday, January 5, 2015.
As always, I encourage you to be active in your student’s school life. Do not hesitate to contact your student’s teacher(s) and principal. My door is always open. If you have questions in regard to district wide issues, give me a call or stop by my office.
HAVE A SAFE AND HAPPY HOLIDAY SEASON!
Very truly yours,
Randy Cotner, Superintendent
