Virtual College Credit Plus Meeting


Lakota High School

VIRTUAL COLLEGE CREDIT PLUS MEETING VIA ZOOM

MONDAY,  JANUARY 31, 2022
6:30 P.M. – 8:00 P.M.


The College Credit Plus Program (CCP) allows Ohio students to earn college credit and high school graduation credit concurrently, through the successful completion of college courses. The CCP Program is open to students in grades 7-12 enrolled in the State’s public, community and non-public schools. The purpose of the program is to promote rigorous academic pursuits and expose students to options beyond the high school curriculum. Students must meet college readiness standards in order to participate.

This meeting will serve as the required counseling for students and their parents/guardians, who wish to participate in CCP or need more information on which to base their decision to participate during the 2022-23 academic school year. STUDENTS AND PARENTS/GUARDIANS MUST ATTEND THE MEETING IN ENTIRETY. Additional counseling sessions are also required for students choosing to participate.

Note: Attendance at a counseling session is required for those students and parents who are currently participating in the CCP Program, as program criteria changes from year to year.

Please note:  We plan to offer a selection of CCP classes at Lakota High School.  These classes will be in the area of science and social studies.  They will be instructed by Lakota staff members who have met the criteria to teach, through Terra State Community College.  

As noted above, the meeting will be conducted via the ZOOM platform. Please register to attend, by emailing Mrs. Slotterbeck, Lakota High School Counselor, at nslotterbeck@lakotaschools.org with the following information and a personal ZOOM invitation will be sent closer to the meeting date:

  • Student’s name, grade and email address
  • Parent’s name and email address

PLEASE REGISTER TO ATTEND BY THURSDAY, JANUARY 27, 2022

Please note: We worked hard to find a date for this meeting that meshed with the majority of student activities. With the changing landscape of schedules, due to inclement weather and COVID cancellations and rescheduling, this was extremely difficult. If students/parents/guardians have a conflict with the date of the meeting, please contact Mrs. Slotterbeck, Lakota High School Counselor, via her email at nslotterbeck@lakotaschools.org. Every attempt will be made to schedule an alternate meeting date.

Also note: Athletic coaches were also advised about this very important meeting and student athletes should be dismissed from practices in time to attend the virtual meeting with their parents/guardians.

Return to School…

Dear Lakota Families and Staff,

I hope you have enjoyed your break. Our top priority is to reman in school with face-to-face instruction. With the spike in COVID cases recently, I am encouraging all staff and students to wear masks in the building when they are not able to safely social distance themselves from others. In addition, please complete daily wellness checks and keep your children home if they are not feeling well. We will also follow the recently changed CDC quarantine protocol reduction of 10 days to 5 days as long as you are symptom free.

Sincerely,

Chad Coffman, Ed. D.
Superintendent

Congratulations to the Following Lakota Musicians!

If you see any of the following students, please congratulate them on their accomplishments in music!

Zoie Lamb:

Zoie performed at OMEA’s Virtual Solo and Ensemble with a Class A Mezzo Soprano song. Class A is the most difficult level of high school music and is often used for college music auditions as well as college-level undergraduate performance music. Zoie’s hard work earned her a Superior Rating, the highest possible score. 

Cash Allen, McKayla Firsdon, and Abby Zuhlsdorf:

All three students auditioned and were selected for OMEA’s District Honors Choir. District Honors Choir is an ensemble consisting of students who worked hard to stand out and be selected from schools in OMEA’s District 2. District Honors Choir is similar to districts for athletics. Those accepted into Districts have the opportunity to work toward All-State as well. This is McKayla’s second year after being selected her sophomore year before the pandemic. 

COVID-19 Reporting Procedures

Ohio Governor Mike DeWine announced on August 27, 2020 an Ohio Department of Health order that requires K-12 schools to establish a mechanism for parents and guardians to report confirmed cases of COVID-19 among their children. In that order is the responsibility of each school district to make publicly available non-identifying information about positive COVID-19 cases.

School Nurse McKenzie Frey, is the District’s COVID-19 Coordinator per state order. She is responsible for tracking all COVID-19 positive cases and reporting confirmed cases to the Sandusky County Health Department. In order to expedite contact tracing and avert any further transmission of COVID-19 we are asking parents/guardians of all Lakota students to please call the nurse to report positive tests and/or cases of COVID-19 no later than twenty-four hours after receiving a positive test and/or diagnosis.

Within 24 hours of Lakota Schools becoming aware of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach who has tested positive or been diagnosed with COVID-19, we will notify staff and families via ParentSquare of a positive test or case of all students or staff who share a classroom space or have participated in a school activity during the COVID-19 infectious period of a student, teacher, staff member, or coach.

Please contact Mrs. Frey with any questions or concerns you may have for your student(s). She can be reached by phone at 419-986-6640 ext. 5111 or by email at mfrey@lakotaschools.org
