News & Announcements

Important: Bussing Information for Your Child


Have you Moved? Will your child start and/or end their day from home or will they be at a sitter's before or after school? 

Each school year, students are required to complete transportation forms that indicate their pick up and drop off locations if other than their home address. Previous forms are no longer valid as situations and routes change from year to year, therefore a new form is required to be filled out each year. Please take a few minutes to fill out and submit the form electronically no later than August 1st so that the bus route can be considered for your child for the start of school. You can access the form HERE or call 419-338-6819. Any student being picked up and dropped off at a stop for their home address will not need to fill out the form. Remember, if we do not receive a form by August 1st, we can only assume that your child will come from and return to home each day. Thank you for your attention as we make arrangements for Elida students for the new school year.

Volunteers Help with District Safety Project

 An important project that will enhance school safety in every school building in the district was just completed!  24 volunteers from several local churches offered their sewing skills to assist with the project to create and install over 200 custom made blinds over every classroom door window in each school building in the district.  Elida high school students also participated in the project. Students in Mrs. Jones’ & Mrs. Cressman’s Resource class helped with sewing, ironing and cutting of the materials.  During normal class time, it is recommended that doors should remain closed and locked, but windows should remain unobstructed. This allows administration the ability to see in classrooms as they walk through their building. However, in the event of an emergency situation involving an intruder in the buildings, teachers can quickly cover the windows with these custom made blinds which have quick-release straps, allowing them to easily conceal their classrooms and students from view.
