A Message from Mr. McQuaide - November 16


Dear Students and Families,

First, as we are now under the State of Ohio’s Free Lunch Program, we are offering daily free lunch and breakfast to
all students in kindergarten through grade twelve during the building closure for remote learning. Parents will have
the choice to pick-up their child’s food either at Currie or Baker Elementary School. This requires a one-time
registration, which you will find on the District’s homepage and titled Remote Learning Food Service Request
Form. In order to receive free lunch and breakfast for your child, this form must be completed no later than 2:00 PM
on Tuesday, November 17th.  After registration, parents can pick-up food daily, beginning on Wednesday, November
18th, either at Currie or Baker, between the hours of 10:30 AM and 12:30 PM.

Next, remote learning work packets for Currie students, in kindergarten through grade two, will be available on
Tuesday, November 17th from 9:00 AM until 6:00 PM at the front door under the awning. If you have any
questions, please ring the doorbell. Each grade level will have an individual table. Please look for the envelope with
your child’s name.

Third, parent teacher conferences are Thursday, November 19th . For kindergarten through grade six, please visit the
class DOJO for sign-up information. Parents of students in grades seven through twelve may call the high school
office to register for conferences. All conferences will be conducted by phone or on the Google Meets format.

Finally, at Mathews High School, we have three new student COVID-19 positive cases and one new case among the
staff members. After today, we will post a general letter to the website when cases occur, but will not send phone
messages. We will still have the nurse contacting families when students have been exposed to a positive case. We
will also inform when students have been in a class, extra-curricular activity, or been on a bus with a person that has
tested positive.

Thanks and have a great day!

Russell McQuaide
