    Information Regarding Classwork and COVID-19

    Schedule for Staff and Students
    Wednesday, March 18 through Friday, March 20 teachers will provide instruction through digital resources and other online tools.  Assignments will be posted daily to Google Classroom.
    Week of March 23-March 27 - No online class for students-enjoy SPRING BREAK!
    Week of March 30-April 3 - Assignments will be posted to Google Classroom.

    Instruction will look different than our students are used to, but it is essential to continue the love of learning. Our teachers are selecting the most important topics needed during this time.  There is not a “set” schedule - parents and students will come up with their own schedule that meets the needs of your child.  Please check your email daily for updates from March 18-20 and March 30-April 3 from your child's teacher.

    Extra, Extra Read All About It! The McDowell/PTO Used Book Sale is Coming April 22, 23, 24th!
    Every year McDowell PTO sponsors a used book sale in April. All books collected are up for sale, and the kids can come and purchase new books to read for $.50. As spring cleaning begins, please consider donating any gently used books your kids no longer want. These can be brought to McDowell and dropped in the boxes in the front hallway. We will store them until the event. We will take any children's books, but the kids especially love to buy new chapter books to read. If you have any questions, please contact Halle Rengers at
    Thanks in advance for all your help!

    From the Clinic
    With flu and cold season upon us, please be on the watch for sore throats and fevers.  It is our goal to keep the school environment as healthy as possible for all children.  A child will be sent home if he or she has:
    • a temperature of 100 degrees or higher
    • active vomiting or diarrhea
    • suspected contagious illness
    • appears obviously ill

    *Please remember children are NOT to bring medications (i.e. cough drops, Tylenol, etc) with them to school on the bus.  If your child needs to take any type of medicine, please contact the nurse's office for more information at 330-653-1292. 
    *If you have any new or nearly new socks, sweat pants, long or short-sleeved shirts appropriate for 3rd graders, the clinic will gladly accept your donations.
