Welcome to Southern Local

2020 graduation

Graduation marks the end of one phase of life for seniors. They are no longer children but are now starting their adult lives. However, this global pandemic has made adults get out of their comfort zone and think outside the box. Something we have been teaching students but not practicing until now. 

We at Southern Local will be holding a Virtual Graduation on May 22 at 7pm. The video will be aired on YouTube and Facebook. Join our graduates Friday night.

Also, on June 6, at 7pm, WTOV9 will be airing our graduation ceremony.

Hopefully, we will someday be able to have our traditions again.

Southern Local, along with all Ohio schools, will be closed through May 1st. This also includes all extra-curricular activities. 

Please make sure that students are checking their emails regularly and follow our teachers through their webpages attached to the School sites. 

Meals will be delivered on Tuesdays now for the duration of the school closure.  If you have not done so and would like to sign up, please email thomas.cunningham@omeresa.net
