Welcome to the Ravenna School District

 

Please check back here and follow us on Facebook for updates. 

As COVID-19 continues to evolve in our area and throughout the county and state, our district will continue to evaluate how things are going and always do what's safe for students and staff!

Having a flexible instructional plan allows our students and staff to be physically distanced and still deliver high quality, in-person learning. Our safety interventions are helping to keep our schools safe and our learning on track as we navigate a school year unlike any other!

You're doing a great job – keep it up!! #RavenPride

RHS Students Attend Online HOBY Leadership Seminar

HOBY stands for Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership and it is the nation's foremost youth leadership development organization.  Their mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation.  Students are nominated during their sophomore year and participate in an interview process.  Two RHS students, Julia Fedor and James Markijohn, were selected during the 2019-2020 school year and attended an online seminar this summer. They participated in leadership activities, met leaders in Ohio, and explored their personal leadership skills, while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in the community.  Way to go, Ravens!!

Ohio Department of Health Opens Call Center to Help With COVID-19 Response

Ohio Department of Health Opens Call Center to Help With COVID-19 Response
1-833-4-ASK-ODH Open Seven Days a Week

(COLUMBUS, Ohio)— Ohio Department of Health Director Amy Acton, MD, MPH, today announced the Ohio Department of Health (ODH) has opened a call center to answer questions regarding coronavirus (COVID-19). The call center will be open 7 days a week from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. and can be reached at 1-833-4-ASK-ODH (1-833-427-5634).


Call center staff includes licensed nurses and infectious disease experts. They will be available to answer questions and provide accurate information about COVID-19, the risk to the public, and the state’s response.


The number of potential cases and the results of testing are regularly updated every weekday at coronavirus.ohio.gov.


While the general risk to the public in Ohio is still considered low, it is important to continue to follow standard precautions to prevent the spread of infectious disease. To prevent the spread of any virus including novel coronavirus, practice these preventative measures:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

Additional information and guidance on COVID-19 is available at ODH’s new website, coronavirus.ohio.gov.





Tips for Keeping Yourself and Others Healthy

TIPS FOR KEEPING YOURSELF AND OTHERS HEALTHY:

  • Stay home when you are sick. If possible, stay home from work, school, and errands when you are sick. You will help prevent others from catching your illness. Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Germs spread this way.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes. Use a tissue to cover coughs and sneezes, then dispose of the tissue. When a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your elbow.
  • Clean and disinfect surfaces or objects. Clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces at home, work or school, especially when someone is ill. Find additional CDC resources on how to clean and disinfect schools.
  • Wash hands for 20 seconds. Washing hands often under clean, running water can help prevent the spread of germs. For more guidance see the CDC: When and How to Wash Your Hands. If you cannot wash your hands, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60-95% alcohol.
