Phone/FAX Information

Our district has gone to one district-wide phone number and Fax number. The district-wide phone number is 419-274-3015, which was the high school phone number. Upon dialing the phone number, the high school is option 1, the middle school is option 2, the elementary is option 3 and the administrative offices are option 4.

The district-wide FAX number is 419-274-1641.

Since the phone system was just installed, not all phone extensions have been programed. If you don’t receive an answer when calling, please leave a message for the office of the building that you dialed.

We thank you for your patience and cooperation as we implement the new phone system.

Temporary High School Entrance

The front entrance to the high school has been closed due to the construction that has begun at the high school office and entrance.  We are asking everyone this summer to enter the high school at the northeast end of the building.  This is the back hallway by the Vo Ag classroom at the student parking lot.  The high school office personnel (principal, secretary, guidance counselors) are being housed in the high school library this summer. 

The superintendent’s office is currently in their normal location.  However, if you need to go to the superintendent’s office, please call in advance as construction has made access to the central office difficult.
