During Winter break, just as our students get a break from their academic life, so does our Perry staff. With school closed for a few days, all Perry Local School Counselors will be out of the office until school resumes. However, if you or someone you know are in need of mental health assistance during this time, there are resources available to you. Click here for more information.
As we approach the new year, Perry Local Schools will maintain its focus on working together with parents to create the healthiest learning environment possible for our students, while encouraging them to make smart choices when it comes to their health and well-being.
