Dear Students,
We are very excited to have you back to school over the next couple days! As you return to school you will see new methods and protocols in place to help keep everyone safe during the day. Your teachers will be reviewing these protocols with you over the next couple weeks to ensure everyone understands and is following expectations. One thing that you need to know before entering the building tomorrow is Freshman and sophomores will enter the building through the doors by the cafeteria and eat breakfast there. Juniors and seniors will enter the building through the main doors and eat breakfast in the gymnasium. No students will be allowed to roam halls. A bell at 7:25 will allow students to go to lockers and then get to class by 7:30. Again, we will be talking more throughout the next couple days of additional changes. We are ready to make this a great year!
Morgan Raider Pride,
Mr. Gifford

Alisha Swiney BA, MPA  Admissions Counselor, Job Corps 

Job Corps is a tuition-free training and education program that connects eligible young people, ages 16-24, with the skills and education opportunities they need to establish real careers.  Students can earn a high school diploma, a GED, or college credits through Job Corps. We offer career technical training in high growth career fields with completion of state certifications. Students receive housing, meals, basic health care, a living allowance, training, and preparation for a career, all at no cost.  For up to 12 months after graduation, a career transition counselor will help graduates make the transition from Job Corps into the real world.  We are currently enrolling for the three Ohio centers located in Cleveland, Cincinnati and Dayton and the Whitney Young Center in Kentucky; though for specific trades, centers outside of these can be explored. For more information on the program visit www.jobcorps.gov  or www.recruiting.jobcorps.gov. I am also attaching a brochure to this email.
I am located in Athens, OH, at the Ohio Means Jobs Center and would love to discuss our program and potential collaboration.  Please call or email me if you need more information or if you are interested in having a call or a meeting.
