early estimates from the State of Ohio Office of Budget and Management indicate
a potential $848,563 required budget reduction over the next 60 days.

the near future. Every district is impacted, and you can see estimated

Board of Education, our Treasurer and your support, we will do the very best to
continue to serve our students as equitably as possible. In the meantime,
please continue to practice social distancing and the other measures set forth
by the Governor, so you and your families remain safe and healthy. Thank you for your support and understanding.
