Welcome to Southern Local

pine trees

As of March when Governor Mike Dewine closed the schools due to the pandemic, we, as many schools in the nation have worked with the county health departments to keep our students and staff safe. When the state started to reopen, discussions and concerns of reopening the schools have been our daily concern. In May, we started preparing the buildings for the fall start of school. As of July 6th, students have been practicing for the fall sports seasons within the guidelines setup. We are still working on the plans for the fall and hope to be able to provide you with the details in early August.

We will continue to provide meals to be picked up on Wednesdays between the hours of 11am thru 1pm. Drive thru the staff parking lot to the 5/6 playground area.

May all of us stay safe and healthy this season. If you have any questions or concerns, please email Mr. Cunningham at thomas.cunningham@omeresa.net.
