A short while ago a student reported a brief message written on a stall wall with word bombs written under it. As mandated, we followed protocol and notified law enforcement immediately. Dogs were brought over to sweep the building. Nothing was found. Students are now free to go about their day as usual. We appreciate the prompt response from our Sheriff’s department. Also, thanks to Pickaway County Sheriff for their assistance as well! It was great to see our students knowing to report a potential threat- well done! We want to remind all students our counseling services are available to everyone. If you feel frustrated, isolated or hopeless there is help right here in the building for you. Just ask. Parents- your children and their safety are always of highest priority for us. Let’s continue to work together to help our kids grow up healthy, happy and strong! John Balzer, Superintendent
Due to a scheduling error earlier in the season, the Adena Lady Warriors must forfeit the game with Westfall that was to be played this evening, February 10th. Although Adena listed the game as a scrimmage, I want to apologize to the young ladies who have played valiantly this season as well as their families. Measures will be implemented to make sure this does not happen in the future. Any presale tickets purchased under the Adena name will be reimbursed electronically. Scott Hurtt, Adena High School Athletic Director
