Those who are receiving support from our school behavioral health specialists will be able to “see” those providers through telehealth. For questions or an appointment, please call 419-679-5994.
PRESCHOOL/KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION AND SCREENING:
Our Preschool/Kindergarten registration process will be done by email/phone for the 2020-2021 school year. Parents need to register their student with Carol Scott, Administrative Assistant at 419-673-7248 Ext.1001 or email at [email protected]. Mrs. Scott will provide information to navigate and complete Final Forms. We will communicate the new dates for screening when we have more information.
