Communications

The Ravenna School District Website is used as a vehicle for keeping the staff, students, parents and the community up-to-date on programming and activities. The website address is www.ravennaschools.us. In addition, coverage of school events is provided through the local newspaper, the Record-Courier. Building principals also send home newsletters and other announcements on a regular basis with students and/or in report card mailings and post regularly on Facebook.

Voicemail and email are available for staff members. Please refer to the staff directory links on the website for contact information for individual buildings and departments.

Emergency Automated Messaging System: The Ravenna School District uses an automated telephone message system to inform our families and staff members about school emergencies or events. The automated system notifies families about school cancellations due to inclement weather. School cancellations will continue to be reported on local television and radio stations as in the past. School events such as open houses, parent-teacher conferences, and music and art programs can also be announced with this system.

The home phone number listed in school records will be used as the primary phone number for emergency calls. Please let us know if your phone number has changed by contacting your building secretary.

Receiving Calls Through the Automated System:

Caller ID will display the school or district’s board of education number when an announcement is delivered
Automated system will leave a message on any answering machine or voicemail

Today, we received notification from the Portage County Health Department that a Ravenna High School student has tested positive for COVID-19.  After doing a tracing investigation, it was determined that this person did NOT have contact with any students or staff members during the time that they were symptomatic or since testing positive. The student has not been in school since September 29, 2020 and is working remotely from home.  While we legally must protect the privacy of the person involved, we believe it is best to communicate as transparently as we are able to so you can make well-informed decisions for your family.  Our schools will continue to follow the 6 Safety Interventions put in place to protect the safety of our students and staff. These interventions enable our schools to isolate only those that fit the COVID-19 exposure criteria.  Please remember:
– COVID-19 is transmitted through person-to-person contact and through the exchange of respiratory droplets. 
– As more cases are being confirmed across the state, including in our community, it is important to be sensible, but to also be vigilant. 
– Symptoms of COVID-19 include fever, cough and shortness of breath. If you or any member of your family exhibit these symptoms, please contact your medical provider for advice immediately. Symptoms usually appear 2-14 days after exposure.  Keeping our buildings open and our students with our teachers is important to us, so we appreciate your vigilance following our Safety Interventions – they are making a difference! Protecting the health and safety of our students, our staff and their families is our top priority.  We can do this!
Students in Mr. Bonfine and Mr Callihan's Biology class at RHS conducted a lab to learn about connectivity of molecules. Students were thrilled to have the opportunity for a hands on learning activity.
National Unity Day is this Wednesday, October 21! RHS is asking students and staff to wear ORANGE to show that we are UNITED against bullying!  Don't have anything orange to wear? No worries!  Stop by room 214 before school or between classes for an orange ribbon of support!
HOBY stands for Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership and it is the nation's foremost youth leadership development organization. Their mission is to inspire and develop our global community of youth and volunteers to a life dedicated to leadership, service, and innovation. Students are nominated during their sophomore year and participate in an interview process.  Two RHS students, Julia Fedor and James Markijohn, were selected during the 2019-2020 school year and attended an online seminar this summer. They participated in leadership activities, met leaders in Ohio, and explored their personal leadership skills, while learning how to lead others and make a positive impact in the community. Way to go, Ravens!!
October is Bullying Prevention Month!  The Service Learning Class at RHS is making "kindness, acceptance, and inclusion" a priority by kicking of Bullying Prevention Month with a month-long set of activities designed to make RHS a safe place for all.  They have created a "Kindness Reporting Form" to be used by students and staff to submit acts of kindness, acceptance, and inclusion. Both the person reporting AND the individual (if named) will be entered in weekly prize drawings!
