CHARACTER STRONG Program being implemented!

The Bright Local School District is excited to implement a Social/Emotional Program called Character Strong into our buildings this year. This program is designed to teach students the importance of strengthening one’s own character in order to improve relationships, better comprehend emotions, increase academic achievement and overall improve the climate and culture in the school. We hope to use this program in small group discussions and in classrooms, as well as reinforcing the lessons through bulletin boards and guest speakers.
Yeagers

Lady Cats “Yeager Strong Night” A Huge Success

The Whiteoak Lady Wildcats Volleyball team hosted the Peebles Lady Indians on Thursday, October 7, during Yeager Strong Night, a benefit for the Yeager Family. Rusty Yeager has been hospitalized and battling Covid19 for over six weeks. He will be hospitalized for some time in order to recover and gain his strength back. The evening consisted of a spaghetti dinner, sponsored by the Mowrystown FFA, a bake sale, silent auction, live auction, split the pot, and a balloon raffle during the volleyball games. A huge thank you to the Peebles Indians for their generosity and kindness throughout the evening. Thank you to our Whiteoak Wildcat community. We are so blessed to live in a small community that cares so deeply for others and is always willing to help.   #YeagerStrong

Bright Local Lunchroom Information – 2021-2022

Bright Local Schools will participate in the Seamless Summer Option (SSO) during the 2021-2022 school year. Under this option, all children who attend Bright Local Schools will receive a breakfast/lunch at no charge. However, students will have to pay for ala carte items, which includes extra pizza, yogurt, chips, etc. Families may pay on accounts for these items two different ways. You may send a check or money with your child to apply to their account. Parents may send one check to apply to students’ accounts even if the child attends a different school. Please specify child’s name and amount for each. Parents also have the option to use www.payschoolscentral.com for online lunch account payments. Students may charge up to $10.00 on their lunch accounts. Parents are notified by phone when their child reaches their $10.00 limit. If we do not reach the parent by phone, a letter will be sent. The cafeteria can transfer money between siblings’ accounts to cover a deficit.  

Letter

Superintendent's Letter - Covid-19 Guidelines as of August 11, 2021

Bright Local Parents and Community,

I want to take this opportunity to thank the Bright Local School District, students and parents for their continued patience and support. I am excited about the opening of the schools in person, five days a week, beginning on August 18th. As we prepare for the opening of school, we must recognize the COVID-19 virus is still a concern to the safety and welfare of our students and staff. Therefore, the Bright Local Schools will implement the following safety protocols as recommended by the CDC and the ODH.

Plan

Bright Local School District - Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Service Plan

In compliance with American Rescue Plan: 
Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief Fund (ARP ESSER)


This plan was developed in coordination between district certified and non-certified staff, administrators, students, parents, and community agencies.


As we plan for the return to In-person instruction we must recognize the Covid-19 virus is still a threat to the safety and welfare of our staff and students. The Bright Local School District must be vigilant in our approach to ensure the safety of all our stakeholders as a result the following principles will guide our district as we move forward with the opening of schools.

  1. The Bright Local School District will implement recommended safety protocols to the highest degree possible.

  2. The Bright Local School District will work closely with the Highland County Health Department to promote health and safety in all school buildings

  3. The Bright Local School District will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy school facilities.

Message from the Superintendent - 12/14/20

Dear School Community,

As always, the Bright Local Schools are committed to the safety, health and welfare of our students and staff. I would like to thank the parents and the Bright Local Community for their patience and continued cooperation as we get through this together. Bright Local Schools will continue to monitor our positive cases and quarantines, follow CDC health guidelines daily and work closely with the Highland County Health Department. We will continue to share our data with you through the Covid-19 tracker on our website.

Guidelines

Bright Local Schools - School Reopening Safety Guidelines

We are all looking forward to the re-opening of our schools.  As we plan for the opening of school, we must recognize the COVID-19 virus is still a threat to the safety and welfare of our staff and students.  We all must be vigilant in our approach to ensuring the safety of all our stakeholders as a result the following principles will guide our district as we move forward with opening our schools:  

  1. Safety protocols will be implemented at each of our buildings.

  2. We will be working closely with the Highland County Health Department in promoting safety measures in each of our buildings.

  3. Students should monitor their own temperatures and their health on a daily basis before coming to school.

  4. Our district will be transparent with all stakeholders that some level of risk will always be present when children and school district employees occupy school district facilities.

  5. We are planning to maintain our previously approved school calendars with some possible front loading of employee professional development.

  6. Reopening guidelines are subject to change due to possible updates from the Highland County Health Department and the State of Ohio. 

  7. In accordance with the Ohio Department of Health's mandate for all K-12 students to wear a mask, Bright Local Schools will require face masks for all students and staff.

  8. On Sat., Aug. 15, the Ohio Department of Health issued a news release indicating that Face Shields are no longer a substitute for Face Masks while students and staff are at school. See news release: https://odh.ohio.gov/wps/portal/gov/odh/media-center/odh-news-releases/face-shields-not-appropriate-substitute-for-masks . The Administration will look to insure every student and staff member wears a face covering as they enter our buildings. We highly encourage the use of actual Face Masks and ask that the use of Face Shields occur only in those situations accepted by the Ohio Director of Health.

  9. Due to COVID-19 guidelines set forth by the State of Ohio concerning mass gatherings, Bright Local Schools will not be accommodating any “Building Use Requests” for non-school related activities until further guidance from the State.
