News & Information
Blizzard Bags

In preparation for calamity days this school year, Pickaway-Ross will be using Blizzard Bag assignments. In the event of a calamity day, students will be directed to access their Blizzard Bag assignments from Progress Book. Blizzard Bags can be found under the homework section in each of their assigned classes.

Students who have Internet access will be able to access the coursework online. Lessons are to be completed and returned to the classroom teacher upon the student’s return to school. If, however, Internet access is needed to complete the online lesson, students who do not have Internet and a working computer will have two weeks to complete the work. Due dates will be posted at the time a calamity day is called.

All students are required to complete the assigned blizzard bag assignments. Failure to complete the assignments will result in a zero (0) for each assignment not completed and they will also be counted absent for that assignment date.

Letters were sent home earlier this year with log-in information to Progress Book. If you need this information again, please have your student come into the attendance office.

If you have any questions about the blizzard bag assignments, please contact your student’s teacher.

Preschool program gets top rating
This summer, Pickaway-Ross' preschool program was awarded a Step Up to Quality 5-Star rating from the Ohio Department of Education and Job and Family Services.
This designation shows that the preschool’s level of quality exceeds Ohio’s child-care licensing standards and has demonstrated the highest level of quality.

Additional points were received in the area of staff qualifications and professional development.

Pickaway-Ross’ preschool operates two half-day sessions that are managed by Early Childhood Education instructors Connie Page and Missy Brown.
ODE starts statewide tip line

On Dec. 15, 2014, a free anonymous tip line became available to all Ohio school districts.

This new tool, called SaferOH, is designed to allow students, parents, teachers and community members to report suspected threats to safety in schools, whether directed toward a single student or a group of students and hopefully deter school violence.
Calls and texts can be sent 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will be answered by trained analysts from Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit will immediately forward information to school officials and/or local law enforcement.
