Administrative Remarks
The November elections have now been finalized. Regardless of the outcomes, America is a democracy “of the people, by the people and for the people.” Therefore, it is important that all of us vote at each election. Regardless of your party affiliation, America is better off when our citizens vote on issues and candidates based on dialogue and compromise.

Are you registered to vote? Are members of your family registered? They should be. The citizens of Lockland and Arlington Heights have long been devoted participants in the electoral process. As a community, we have influenced elections and the passage of important legislation.

Here are a few tips to Get Out the Vote each election:
  • Be sure that all eligible members of our families are registered to vote.
  • Remind students attending college that they should be registered either in their primary residence or at home and vote by absentee ballot if necessary.
  • Inform senior citizens who relocate of how, when, and where to register in their new locations.
  • Urge everyone you know (friends, relatives, coworkers) to register.
  • Be informed about candidates and election issues.

If you would like a voter registration form for your household, you can obtain these from the Lockland School, the Board of Elections or the Post Office. You can complete the forms at home and mail them to the Registrar of Voters or you can drop them off at the school and we will get these forms to the Board of Elections office. You can also register online at https://olvr.sos.state.oh.us/

If you are not registered, or in doubt as to whether you are registered, please take the time today to register. If you have moved, changed your name since you last voted or if you have not voted in the last four years, your name has been removed from the voter rolls.

If you are not sure whether or not you are registered, you can check the status of your voter registration or find your voting precinct and polling place in Ohio, please visit the Ohio My Voter Information website .
YMCA Spotlight
The Lockland Middle High School 21st CCLC YMCA After-School program has increased their registration to 39 participants through October. We have seen increased focus on grades with our students and they have had fun making stress balls and slime this month.

Any high school student is welcome to come get help with their FAFSA, applying to colleges or essay writing.

Nurses Notes...
We have reached the time of year when illness is spreading.  Guidelines are used to determine if a student should be sent home. We really do want to keep the students here at school but if necessary we will send them home. 

This is a good time to remind your child how and when to wash their hands to prevent the spread of
germs (illness examples: flu, conjunctivitis, impetigo, ringworm, strep throat just to name a few). 

Here's how to scrub those germs away. Teach this to your kids — or better yet, wash your hands
together often so they learn how important this good habit is:
  • Wet your hands with clean, running water (warm or cold). Make sure the water isn't too hot for little hands.
  • Use soap and lather up for about 20 seconds. Antibacterial soap is not a must — any soap will do.
  • Make sure you get in between your fingers, on the backs of hands, and under the nails where
  • germs like to hang out. And do not forget the wrists!
  • Rinse and dry well with a clean towel.(https://kidshealth.org/en/parents/handwashing.html)

-When hand washing is not available using hand sanitizer is the next best thing. 

-Wiping tables, chairs, doorknobs, electronics and frequently used items in the home will help reduce the spread of germs. 

-Remember to cough and sneeze into the elbow and not the hand. 

Important Reminders:
  • Vision and hearing screenings are being performed at school
  • November 30th--School Smiles Dental Program will be here - if you would like your child to participate you can still register. Forms can be found in the office, see Nurse Jen, or on our website under the Nurse's Corner. 

I hope you find this information helpful. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Thank you,
Nurse Jen Schierloh
