Band & Choir Sign Up for Pfeiffer

Attention all 5th grade parents and students…
In a normal school year we would be enrolling 5th grade students in next year’s band and choir programs for Pfeiffer…but as you know this year has been anything but normal. However, we are still very excited to have you join the band, choir, or both ensembles for the 2020-2021 school year.  Band & Choir are open to all 5th graders moving into 6th grade next year. You do not need to have any prior musical experience to join these groups. This is a great opportunity to explore playing a musical instrument and singing in a full choir. Students are able to do Band only, Choir only, or participate in both ensembles. Please watch these informational videos about each group…

Remote Learning Grading Guidelines

Dear Parents and Guardians,
Perry Local has established the following grading guidelines for the fourth grading period.  With the Governor’s decision to continue educating remotely for the remainder of the year, the District thought it was important to clearly outline the academic expectations for the final grading period.  Understanding the difficulties of truly educating and evaluating  a student remotely, these guidelines were created to encourage our students to remain engaged in their learning but at the same time not be punitive.  Thank you for your continued support as we navigate through this season much longer than most of us hoped.  We know however the safety and wellbeing of our students will always be the overarching theme of what drives Perry Local.  Puede hacer clic aquí para ver la versión en español.

Election Update: 3-17-2020

As many of you already know, today’s election has been officially postponed until June 2, 2020. Last night was extremely confusing regarding the status of today’s election. Last night, based upon the best information available at the time, our group (along with other entities) communicated that the polls would be open today. Unfortunately, after that communication, an order was issued by the Ohio Department of Health to close the polls. This change happened in the very late hours. We apologize for any inconvenience.

For those of you who voted early, your vote will still count. For those of you who will not have the chance to vote today, you can request an absentee ballot between now and June 2 by visiting https://www.starkcountyohio.gov/board-of-elections.

Election Update 3-16-2020

Tomorrow’s election, on March 17th, WILL take place as previously scheduled. Polls will open at 6:30. Although the Governor proposed the election be postponed, this was denied by the courts this evening. Again, the election WILL occur tomorrow as previously scheduled.  The health and safety of our community members is our top priority. We ask that you take the necessary precautions tomorrow if you choose to exercise your right to vote and to please remember that Perry Local Schools has Issue 15 on the ballot.
