Parent/Guardian Update Adena Staff Vaccination Day Round #1 Adena Staff have been assigned vaccination times for Thursday, February 25th, from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.. We will have to travel to Union Scioto Local Schools to receive our shots. Due to the length of time involved for each individual to travel to the site, receive their shot, wait the required 15 minutes and then return, we will have to make February 25th a distance learning day in order to get this accomplished. We want to let everyone know in advance so you can make arrangements. Our District Required Hours Status is in good standing. We have used a considerable amount of our hours to provide the delayed start requested at the beginning of the year due to the pandemic. We have used 7 weather-related distance learning days and will use 1 day for vaccinations in order to avoid having school in session until June 16th to meet Ohio requirements. It is important to let everyone know that we are carefully tracking academic data this year, and our students are right on target for the expected score levels on achievement measures. Our students are to be commended for keeping up with their work, achieving success in their extracurricular activities and making in-person learning possible through their cooperation with CDC guidelines and Ohio mandates. Next year we will be able to start on a normal calendar. We certainly hope to use fewer distance learning days and hope the weather cooperates a little better than it has this year. Most importantly, we are guardedly optimistic we can put much of the pandemic-related issues impacting this year behind us. Again, as it stands, we are still on track to be finished with this year on June 4th. We appreciate everyone cooperating and working together to get through the pandemic which is obviously a once-in-a-generation event. Spring will be here soon and hopefully we will be returning to a more normal situation. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Our girls' basketball team will be departing school tomorrow at approximately 3:30 p.m. to head to their district semifinal tournament game against North Adams.

Come out and cheer them on as they pass through Frankfort on the way to their game! Go Warriors!

Our boys’ basketball team defeated Paint Valley last night 66-45 and are now outright SVC champs! They brought home their first league championship since 2006 and are now 19-2 and finished 13-1 in the SVC! This follows what our girls’ basketball team accomplished on Monday night. On Monday, our Lady Warriors claimed an outright SVC title with their 40-33 victory over Unioto! Their first league championship since 2013. They are currently 15-3 and 11-1 in the SVC! The first time both of our basketball programs have won a league championship in the same school year in school history! These team accomplishments follow what our football and volleyball programs did this fall. As they claimed league championships as well. This community cannot be more proud of what all of our student-athletes and coaches have accomplished this school year, despite the adversity they have dealt with during these current times. True Warriors! Go Warriors!
