Parent Advisory Update: Suspected Cases of Mumps

Olentangy Local Schools is working with the Delaware General Health District regarding five suspected cases of mumps. Cases of suspected mumps have been identified at Scioto Ridge Elementary School, Shanahan Middle School, Olentangy High School and Liberty High School and Liberty Middle School.  The Health District encourages those who are at highest risk of mumps to get vaccinated. Those at risk include individuals who have not received any doses of measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) and those who have received only one of the two doses of MMR. Children should receive the MMR vaccine on or after their first birthday, followed by a second dose at four to six years of age. Additional mumps information, including an FAQ provided by the Centers of Disease Control, is available by following these web links provided by the Delaware General Health District.

Four OLHS Artists Are “All-State”

Four artists from Olentangy Liberty High School (OLHS) have been selected to display their work at the 2014 Governor’s Youth Art Exhibition.  The exhibition is the most competitive and prestigious art show in Ohio. The art was chosen from 12,000 regional entries statewide. State jurors then select 300 for the actual exhibition.  OLHS had 12 peices go to the state judging round, and four students were selected for the final show of top 30 works. Being chosen for this show is the high school art world’s equivalent to being named all-state in sports.

 

OOMS students attend Ohio Model United Nations

About 30 students from Olentangy Orange Middle School (OOMS) attended the Ohio Model United Nations (OMUN), held at the downtown Hyatt Regency March 16-18.  The OMUN is a three day global education experience that helps students learn how the United Nations operates. Students become delegates of a selected nation in order to write, present and debate issues affecting the nations and peoples of the world. Students began at the start of the school year to research a country and decide the biggest problem facing that country.  Together they write a resolution explaining the problem and potential solution, then present thier findings at the summit. This year there were about 1,000 students at the middle school conference which is sponsored by the Ohio Leadership Institute.
