June Board of Education Meeting

The Perkins Local Schools Board of Education will hold its regularly scheduled meeting at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, June 10. The meeting will be held virtually and broadcast via the PerkinsNow YouTube channel. Stay tuned for more information.

The Board also will meet at the Perkins Schools Administrative Service Center on Thursday, June 11, for a special meeting. The Board will meet in a closed session to discuss personnel matters. No action is expected. 

 

Students and their Chromebooks

We’ve had many questions about when students need to return their Chromebooks. We’ve got some good news for students in grades Pre-K to 11: They get to keep the machines for the summer. (Graduating Seniors, see below). 

The Chromebook computers are protected by Internet filtering software that continuously monitors the devices and blocks inappropriate content. The laptops are insured, as well. 

If students have a problem or need support with their machines, they can contact the Perkins Schools Tech Department via email or by calling (419) 502-2406.

 

Seniors, Don’t Forget To Pick Up Your Diplomas

Perkins High School seniors: Please come to the back of PHS on Tuesday, June 9, and pick up your diplomas, academic letter and pins, and senior banners. You can also drop off laptops and any books you have.

If you want to keep your school-issued Chromebooks, you can buy them for $147. If students want to purchase the computers, they can do so online here.

 

And About Those Lunches

If you have a child in kindergarten through 12th-grade who was receiving free or reduced-price meals while in school, your child is eligible for the Pandemic Electronic Benefit Transfer (P-EBT) program to receive Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits as a result of the school closure.
