PEPPER PIKE, Ohio — The Orange City School District will host a COVID-19 vaccination clinic, in conjunction with Rite Aid pharmacy, for students 12 and older from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 22 at Orange High School.
Superintendent Lynn Campbell told the Orange Board of Education Monday (Oct. 10) that the clinic will offer an opportunity for students to receive the updated COVID-19 booster shot, as well as a flu shot.
“We had parents respond to a survey saying about 104 students would get their (updated COVID-19) booster shot for those age 12 and over, so we felt that would be enough to get the pharmacists and the nurses from Rite Aid to come out,” Campbell said.
“There will be a communication going out soon to all of our families. So stay tuned for the link for the sign-up.”
Board President Scott Bilsky asked whether a similar clinic for students ages 5-11 may be held after those children are authorized to receive the updated booster dose.
“Yes, we could put the same survey out, and if the interest is there, we’d make it easy for our parents to come here,” Campbell said.
Campbell said the district will continue to communicate with families regarding COVID-19 information, as well as keeping its COVID-19 dashboard updated.
He said the district will still send letters to families of students in pre-kindergarten through grade 12 if it has what could be identified as a “potential cluster” of COVID-19 cases, adding that the Cuyahoga County Board of Health still wants to be notified of that information.
“November has a history of a spike in cases, so I wouldn’t be surprised (if that happens),” Campbell said. “We’re getting good at responding, and we feel prepared for whatever lies ahead for us.”
According to the district’s COVID-19 dashboard, updated Monday, the district has two active student cases, no active staff cases and no students or staff in quarantine.
OHS Writing Center to be featured
Also on Monday, board member Beth Wilson-Fish congratulated the Orange High School Writing Center, which will be featured this week on the NewsDepth A+ Award segment of NewsDepth on PBS.
The segment will be posted on the WVIZ/PBS ideastream website Thursday (Oct. 13) and will air at 1 p.m. Friday (Oct. 14) and 8 a.m. Saturday (Oct. 15) on WVIZ-TV (Channel 25).
NewsDepth, a weekly interactive television program produced by ideastream, breaks down the biggest news stories into teachable lessons for fourth- to sixth-grade students, according to the website.
Wilson-Fish noted that the OHS Writing Center was a project of the school’s Future Problem Solving team.
The team placed third at the Future Problem Solving International Conference last June at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst after earning first place in the state competition.
“I know Kathy Frazier (the district’s gifted education specialist and a team adviser) is super proud of her students and the hard work that they’ve done,” Wilson-Fish said.
OHS renovation update
Ted Roseberry, the district’s director of business operations, provided another update on the Orange High School renovation project.
“We put a rooftop (HVAC) unit on the upper gym (Monday), so within a week or so we should be able to heat that area of the renovation,” he said. “So you have two rooftop units in place.”
A third unit that will be installed in the new media room/agility room is scheduled for shipment Nov. 4, Roseberry said.
“Also, our new lockers have arrived,” he said. “They’re not installed; they’re sitting at the vendor.
“As soon as football (season) ends, the week of (Oct. 31), we’re going to start the installation of the new lockers in the locker rooms and the removal of the existing ones. It will be about a two-week process to get those installed.
“So we are making some headway. It’s just slow and steady as things come in.”
Roseberry also noted that new benches will be installed in the locker room around the same time as the lockers.
“We’ve got plans in place for (student athletes) to get dressed in other locker rooms until we can complete the renovation before (winter sports) games start,” he said.
Construction of the $3.87 million project began early this year with the objective of improving the safety, security and accessibility of Orange High School.
Most of the renovation project was completed in time for the start of classes in August.
The board’s next meeting will be at 6 p.m. Oct. 24.
