Ohio Dept. of Health Order Closing School Facilities Including Athletic Facilities

Ohio Dept. of Health Order Closing School Facilities

A major announcement yesterday was the Director of the Ohio Dept. of Health’s order that all school buildings will be closed through June 30, 2020. Through a call to the ODH, it was clearly stated that this extends to all school facilities as well and includes stadiums, baseball/softball diamonds and tracks.  This clearly prohibits all schools from making their facilities available to club/travel/non-interscholastic sports during this mandatory shut-down.  While we have no authority over each school’s facilities, our oversight to complying with this is the mandatory no-contact rule that has been in place. 


Support is Available

This is an important time to take extra care of our health and well being.  You are strong enough to face it all.  You are not alone.    Click for details, Local and National support Available 24/7. More +

Garaway School Meal Distribution Pirate Strong Updated 5/22/20

The Garaway Child Nutrition department will be distributing meals to families on Friday, May 1, 8, 15, 22, and 29 between 11 AM - 1 PM at the Fairview Ave. access to Garaway High School.  Children will receive 5 breakfast meals and 5 lunch meals on each day. There will be perishable food so make sure you get it to refrigeration as soon as possible. 


In an effort to provide plenty of variety there will be some cooking or reheating of product.  Cooking instructions will be provided for any items that are not ready to eat. In order to keep exposure to a minimum during this time we ask that you bring a paper with the child's name and school listed.  If there are children under the age of 5 and are not in school yet you may also add them to the list and they will be provided 5 breakfast meals and 5 lunch meals as well.


With the mandated closings of so many businesses we also want to offer you the opportunity to fill out a meal application form because you could possibly qualify for free or reduced meals at this time.  You can fill out the application online at www.payschoolscentral.com or pick up a printed application on the day of pickup. You can complete an application while waiting for your food.


Thank you for your patience in this matter as we learn how much to prepare.  We will also continue to post other sources of help on our website and social media.
