This week, the Ohio Department of Education released a list of districts and schools who received the Momentum Award, based on report card data from the 2016-2017 school year. According to the Ohio Department of Education’s webpage, the Award recognizes schools for exceeding expectations in student growth for the year. Schools must earn straight A’s on all Value-Added measures on the report card. The school or district must have at least two Value-Added subgroups of students, which includes gifted, lowest 20% in achievement, and students with disabilities.
I am pleased to announce that for the second consecutive year both Logan Elm Local Schools and Salt Creek Intermediate School received the Momentum Award from the Ohio Department of Education. Less than five percent of the districts and schools, in Ohio, received this award for two consecutive years! I would like to congratulate the staff, students, parents and community for this outstanding recognition.

There will be limited bus transportation on Monday November 6 due to high water and flooding in some areas within the district. Thank you.
Dear Parents and Guardians:
As you know, Ohio House Bill 410 (HB410) was approved in the Ohio Legislative General Assembly in December 2016. The approved measure regarding changes to compulsory attendance laws went into effect for the 2017-18 academic school year in all Ohio school districts.
At the time our Student Handbooks were printed, the Ohio Department of Education had not released the Model Policy and Practices for HB 410. In our handbooks, we notified you of this delay and noted that additional attendance policies and practices would be released at a later date.
At this time, we are notifying you of an update to Logan Elm’s attendance policy. Students will be limited to five (5) parent excused absences per semester or ten (10) parent excused absences per school year. Once the limit of parent excused absence is reached, only School Excuses issued by a Healthcare Provider (ex: doctor, dentist, orthodontist, therapist) will be accepted to excuse an absence. The limit of parent excuses is not new; it has been the practice at Logan Elm schools prior to the passage of HB410.
If you have any questions, please contact the Salt Creek office. Thank you.
On Friday October 27th the 5th grade classes will be taking a day trip to Camp Oty'okwa for team building initiatives. The form that was sent home with each 5th student is attached in the link below. It provides the necessary information for making this trip a success. If you have any questions or concerns please call the Salt Creek office at 740-332-4212.
Logan Elm is on a Two Hour Delay for Friday October 13th due to dense fog.
