Latest News for Perry Local Schools
In keeping with advice and recommendations regarding COVID-19 from Governor DeWine, Stark County Health Department, and the Ohio Department of Health, K- 12 schools will remain open at this time, but the recommendation is to postpone school activities. Based on this recommendation at the state level, we have made the difficult decision to postpone Perry High School’s performance of Pippin. Our high school theater performance is a big part of the Perry tradition and we have every intention to celebrate the students and all of the hard work they have put into this production at a later date. Please note that the performance of Pippin is not canceled, but will be postponed until further notice. It is important to understand that Ohio now has confirmed cases of COVID-19. This is a rapidly evolving situation, and one which we are monitoring closely. For the safety and wellbeing of our students, families and staff we feel this is the best decision at this time. We will notify students and parents of the future date for the production of Pippin once confirmed.
