Flu and cold information available from the Ohio Department of Health and the CDC
Cold and flu season is coming to Ohio, and effective strategies to reduce absences among students and staff include both good hand hygiene and getting vaccinated against influenza every year.
The Ohio Department of Health offers a fact sheet regarding the use of alcohol-based hand sanitizers in the school setting. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers information about the benefits of hand washing and key facts about the importance of the annual influenza vaccination.
Dear Parents/Guardians of Fostoria City Schools,
We believe it is important to communicate with our families. One way we do that is with our instant message system. We are using a company called School Messenger.
The phone numbers and emails that are used initially are the contacts listed in our student information system (DASL). If you would like to be able to change how you are contacted, we will need a current email address in our system. Please send your current email address using the link provided below and we will enter that into our student information system.
Click the following link to add or change your current email address:https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1-uW_SQIyhUyZzIdSmXWW79fBc8-z6Gqh6Xdv-IAs1Hk/viewform?edit_requested=true

Once your address is in you will be able to go to https://go.schoolmessenger.com/#/home and create an account that will allow you to add numbers and email addresses to your profile. Note: Changes made through the School Messenger application do not inform your child’s school of the changes. Parents/Guardians should also inform the school of any changes to phone numbers and/or email addresses.
School Messenger provides you the opportunity to “Opt-In” if you wish to receive school/district messages via text by texting“Yes” to our district’s short code number, 67587. You can also “Opt Out” of receiving text messages at any time by simply replying to one of our messages with “Stop.”
School Messenger is compliant with the Student Privacy Pledge, so you can rest assured that your information is safe and will never be given or sold to anyone.
Transportation Request Form
If they will not be riding, we will remove them from the route list. Should they need to be put back on the route, you can call the transportation office and we will put them back on a route. This helps us keep our ridership accurate to ensure we have a spot for all students who will be riding the bus.
Please turn in completed alternate request forms to students building. May take up to five(5) school days to be processed. (Click here for Alternate Transportation Request Form)
Thank you for your assistance!
Have a safe and enjoyable summer!
