This is an important message regarding students who ride Bus #21 with Rob Kruger. Students on Bus #21 will be riding home on different buses today, September 9, 2020. Bus #21 will not be running so students will be split up between other buses. Please be aware that they may arrive earlier or later than expected. Please also keep in mind other bus routes may be running behind because of this adjustment. Again, this is an important message regarding bus routes this afternoon. Bus #21 will not be transporting students. Students on that bus may arrive home earlier or later than expected. Please plan accordingly. Thanks and have a great day!

Hello, and welcome back to Adena Local Schools! The Covid19 pandemic has become a historical event in the lives of our children. Books will be written, documentaries produced, and new ways of life will result from the experiences we have lived through, especially when it comes to school. This year we are optimistically planning to open school back up for those who wish to attend in person. That means we will still have to do things differently than we did before March arrived. The fact remains however, that we are still Adena Schools and we are still here to serve the needs of our children and the community. We are glad you are back. We hope you will enjoy your year. Below is an example of how things are a bit different… We can’t bring in thousands of people for Open House like we did before. However, we can find new and creative ways to bring Open House to you in a convenient digital format you can enjoy from home! There are folders for the Elementary, Middle and High School. Click on the folders and staff for your children and meet your new teachers. You can tell they have been isolated for quite a while. Many of these videos are very “unique” to put it mildly. Enjoy the creativity and sense of humor (that’s what I am calling it) as our staff introduces themselves to you for the 2020-2021 school year. You will find we have an OUTSTANDING group of educators who are eager to return to school and be in front of your children as their teachers. We look forward to seeing you in the “new normal” September 8th! https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1_3R1CS6zcHtQkFEi1BIJUcOtgEF2coE9?usp=sharing
