Today marks the beginning of Teacher Appreciation Week at Adena. Teaching has always been a challenging job. Today more than ever teachers are facing challenges nobody imagined would be part of the daily job- emotional trauma, families in chaos, constant accountability rule changes and added unfounded mandates. Thankfully our teachers can still find time to focus on our kids. It is what professionals do. Take a moment to watch this video produced by students in Mrs. Cormany’s technology class. It’s a great salute to our staff and a confirmation of their dedication to the wellbeing of our kids. Thank you Adena staff and have a wonderful week- You are appreciated! https://youtu.be/0K96J2GnZHY

We want to let everyone know we had to deal with an elementary bathroom incident in which a girl had written, “I have a bomb in my book bag.” Following the protocol of assessment we determined it was not a credible threat but we still have to contact the Ross County Sheriff to file a report and concur on our assessment. The Sheriff’s department concurred it was not a credible threat as well. However, as an added precaution I asked for the Pickaway County bomb sniffing dog to check the lockers. The dog found nothing. I appreciate the quick work of both Ross and Pickaway County Sheriff’s Departments. Parents, we have to sit down with our children and make sure they understand in this day and age that actions like this are not appropriate or acceptable under any circumstances. PLEASE sit down with your children and have the crucial discussion regarding being responsible for your actions and knowing how to think before acting. We have to work together to make sure our school can operate safely at all times. Each time we have to deal with an event like this we undermine the overall sensitivity to safety among our students and hamper our first responders with unnecessary responses. We will always act to preserve the safety of our students. We hope that you will help support us by making sure all students know their responsibilities in this process as well. Thank you.
