The City of Findlay is letting people know that the entrance to the municipal building will be temporarily moved for a few days.
The city says for Monday, September 16th and Tuesday, September 17th the entrance to the municipal building will be temporarily moved to the south side entrance, which is the entrance that faces the south (Crawford Street) parking lot.
All employees and visitors to the municipal building will have to use the south entrance for those two days.
The Dorney Plaza entrance (east entrance) is being temporarily closed for entryway repair and will be inaccessible during the process.
Fostoria City Schools has sent out a notice that students who are not immunized will be excluded from school beginning next week.
The post on the school district’s Facebook page was getting pushback from some people saying the district isn’t citing both sides of the law.
Ohio law currently requires students to be immunized, but parents can opt-out of having their child vaccinated for medical or religious reasons or some other “good cause” reason.
Students with an exemption form on file will not be excluded from school come September 19th.
The notice sent out by Fostoria City Schools is below, and can also be viewed on the district’s Facebook page.
FCS parents/guardians, As of Wednesday, September 11th, our records show that many kindergarten, 7th, and 12th grade students do not have the required immunizations. By the end of the school day September 18, 2019, if these documents are not turned in OR if we do not have a record that an appointment has been scheduled, your child will be excluded from school beginning September 19, 2019. Upon completion of the immunizations, please send them to school with your child or bring them directly to the school office. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.
On the thread on the Facebook post the district has since posted a letter that was sent to all parents that does include information about the exceptions to the immunization requirement.
The district says the recent Facebook post was meant to be general reminder only.
The Ohio Department of Education has released the new school district report cards.

The Ohio Department of Education says the report cards are designed to give parents, communities, educators and policymakers information about the performance of districts and schools, to celebrate success and identify areas for improvement.
However, officials point out that the report cards are only one part of the story.
To get a fuller picture, people are encouraged to visit their schools, talk with educators, parents and students, and review the school’s or district’s webpage.
