The Ohio Department of Education has declared Firelands High School, South Amherst Middle School and Firelands Elementary School as renewed Purple Star buildings.
The Purple Star Award is earned for military-friendly schools. Ohio’s military-connected youth requires additional support measures and the renewal states that we are meeting the academic and social emotional needs of these students. The state of Ohio has declared that Firelands Local Schools continues to show a commitment to students and their families that are connected to the US Military.
Each building has designated individual that will support children of military parents. Please see below:
- Firelands Elementary School: Mrs. Valerie Schuster
- South Amherst Middle School: Mrs. Lauren Budweg
- Firelands High School: Mr. Rob Clarico
In addition, we have created a website that provides additional information if you are part of a military family.
Not only are we proud of the recognition but more importantly, we are honored to serve these special members of our community!
