Russia Local School is installing a new playground the week of June 15th and we are looking for volunteers to help in the construction.  Snider Recreation will be leading the project and will be sending a three person crew to supervise and help in the construction process.  We are anticipating that the installation will take 4-5 days.  Any community member who is interested in assisting with the construction of the project is encouraged to sign up on the attached sheet

School Closure / Sports Updates

At the direction of the Governor of Ohio all schools will be closed starting Tuesday, March 17th through Friday, April 3rd.  During this time there will be no extracurricular activities and the school will be closed to the public. 

To clarify this starts Tuesday and we will have school on Monday, March 16th.  

All staff members will report to work as scheduled during these three weeks and Russia School will transition to a remote classroom at that time.  We will work to the best of our ability to continue to provide the best education to our students. 

Each student will bring home additional information tomorrow explaining how we will transition to a remote learning environment.  Chromebooks will be available for any students in grades 4-8 who may need them.  They may be signed out in the office on Monday.   We know this is not ideal, but we are trying to make the best out of this very difficult situation.  We will keep you informed as new information becomes available.

Kroger Community Rewards

posted Aug 23, 2012, 12:48 PM by   [ updated Aug 24, 2012, 8:32 AM ]

The Kroger rewards program has changed. If you were unfamiliar with the way the previous system worked, you needed to have a separate Kroger gift card that was tied to Russia School. This needed loaded with money where a certain percentage was reimbursed to our school.

The new program ties our school to your Kroger Plus Card that most people already have. Below are steps that you can follow that will tie your card to our school so Russia School receives a portion of money you spend. This is a valuable source of income that funds many of the student activities we do here at school. If you have trouble or any questions, please feel free to contact me at school.

The most important part of tying your account to Russia, is following up with the confirmation e-mail they will send after you have enrolled in the program on-line. You must enter Russia’s code to your account after you enroll in the program.

If you know of someone who may not have received this e-mail, please spread the news. The more people that know and link their accounts to Russia, the more funds we receive back from Kroger.
