A Snow Day on Friday, February 9, interrupted the District's initial celebration of the national No One Eats Alone Day, but the rescheduled plans were a big success.

On National No One Eats Alone Day, students all over the country committed to making a difference in their school and communities by ensuring everyone was included during lunch. The TPS schools that participated had a wide range of activities planned, with some very intimate and focused on student and staff interaction, while others were more large scale and focused on school and partner engagement.

Students at Birmingham Elementary have joined more than 97,000 Northwest Ohio students across Lucas, Wood, Fulton, Defiance, Ottawa, Sandusky, Seneca, Erie and Huron counties in moving more while enhancing learning throughout the day, thanks to a sponsorship by Mercy Health and Mercy Health - Children’s Hospital.

Mercy Health is bringing GoNoodle Plus to 249 public and private elementary schools in Northwest Ohio at no cost for a three-year period, expanding this program to more than 5,600 elementary classrooms across these nine counties.

Toledo Public Schools is requesting that all parents and guardians take the time to share their military status by taking this simple survey: Military Family Survey

The Ohio Department of Education, in conjunction with TPS, would like to use this information to ensure that students have access to the resources available to support our military families.

Thank you in advance for your help with this data collection initiative and please know that Toledo Public Schools thanks you for your service - and the support you provide your students in their education.

 

Gone are the days when students could only go around the corner to their neighborhood high school. Today’s world is about choices, and Toledo Public Schools is pleased to offer four magnet schools that are designed to give students specialized instruction in some of the hottest industries.
Whether you see yourself as a CEO of a high-tech company or desire to take things apart to see how they work, there are TPS schools that can help you start on your career path while still in high school.

Because of the serious flu outbreak in our area and elsewhere, here are a few reminders to TPS students, their families and TPS staff members so that everyone can stay healthy:
  1. Cough and sneeze into your elbow! NEVER cough or sneeze into your hand.
  2. Wash your hands... often! If soap and water are not available, hand sanitizer works well.
  3. Be conscious of high touch surfaces i.e. door handles, hand rails, coffee pot handles, refrigerator doors, etc. Remember to regularly wipe these areas down with sanitizing wipes.
  4. You can still get a flu shot. Even if you still get the flu, the shot will reduce the severity.
  5. If you are truly ill, please stay home.
 Remember, it is the job of EVERYONE to prevent colds and flu.
 The flu season has peaked - but there are still many weeks to go before spring!
