POLICY FOR ADMINISTRATION OF MEDICATIONS
If it is medically necessary for a child to take any type of medication at school (prescription or over the counter), parents must complete a medical authorization form and send it with the medicine, in its original container, marked with the child's name to the office. Children ARE NOT permitted to keep any type of medication with them, in their desks or book bags, at ANY time. Exceptions to this policy, including inhalers and Epi-pens, must be recorded and discussed with the principal.
Please contact the school office at 330-753-6435, if you have any questions regarding this policy.

Important morning drop-off information:
Please use the parking lot entrance on Paige Ave. to enter the school parking lot. Use the Seventh St. exits to leave the parking lot. This keeps the children safe. Please share this information with anyone who might be picking up or dropping off.
When dropping off in the morning, encourage your child to cross in front of your car rather than behind. You are the best person to be aware of your child's whereabouts, so you can best verify that your child is safely beyond your car.
If you need to park in order to enter the school, please use the east end of the parking lot rather than the west end. Lots of cars parked near the school obstruct the children's vision of on-coming cars as they are walking to the building.
Saint Augustine School is using Progress Book grading system that is used by our neighboring Summit County schools. As a parent you will have access to your student's assignments and grades. Additionally, you will be able to view our school's news and information page for current events and happenings throughout the year.
If you are just beginning with Progress Book, you will be provided an initial user name and password. To begin using this system you will need to go log on and activate your account. Once your account has been activated, you will be asked to create a new username and password before you can login to Progress Book. We ask that you keep this information on hand. Saint Augustine School will not have access to or know your personal user name or password. Please contact us for any help that you may need in setting up your account.
Because of your ability to view your child's most recent assessed grades, no interim reports will be mailed from the school. If for any reason your family does not have computer or internet access, let us know and we will have a copy of your student's interim grades mailed to you. We do ask that you provide a written request to your child's homeroom teacher for a printed copy of their interim grades.
