Dear Parents and Community,
As of today, the Governor of Ohio has issued a “shelter in place” order. You can read that document on our webpage, www.continentalpirates.org/health-care/. With this order, Continental Local Schools decided it was time to close the central office as well. Although the offices and buildings are closed, we are still here for you. Please call 419-596-3671 and leave a message. You can also email. Our directory information can be found here:www.continentalpirates.org/faculty-staff/k-12-staff/. Whichever way you attempt to communicate, we will get back with you as soon as possible.
There are also many social media websites used by Continental Local Schools to help keep you informed. Visit www.continentalpirates.org/technoloty/ to see the list and links to different sites. The elementary Facebook page is an excellent place to find out what is happening at Continental Elementary. www.facebook.com/continentalelementary/.
Also, I have put out a couple of videos. The latest one came out Friday and is on the school website. The direct link is https://vimeo.com/399138206. This video talks about how we are feeding kids in our community and what you can do to help as well as other information.
I will continue to keep you as up to date as I possibly can. I thank you for your patience and understanding.
WHAT WE KNOW!
My what we know segment is still the same at this point.
● We come back to school on April 6th.
● The governor has asked us all to stay home.
● Teachers, students, AND PARENTS are working hard to keep the education moving forward.
● We will still bring Packs for Pirates food to homes on March 30th from 2 to 4 pm. ○ If you are not on the Packs for Pirates list, and you need assistance, please call 419-596-3671 and leave a message. We will get back with you.
Finally, I want to talk about our social-emotional health. As we continue to work through the current issues facing us, please know you are not alone. As a school, we are here to do whatever we can. Please call us or email anyone at the school and we will be happy to assist you in dealing with this how you are feeling. I have also attached some links to assist you if needed.

Thank you again for your support of our students and our community. We are pulling together and our resolve is unwavering. Be safe, be smart.
