As a district, we will continue to prioritize safety, explore the best methods, and ensure that current safety measures are accurately functioning. Friday afternoon (9/1) at approximately 1:30 p.m., Galion City School District will conduct a districtwide lockdown drill to assess the recently installed Centegix CrisisAlert system, which notifies district administrators and first responders in an emergency. This drill will be the first district wide test of the system for the 2023-2024 school year. The Galion Police Department will participate in the exercise to ensure the communication is received and dispatched properly. Practicing the procedures and systems we have in place ensures that they work as they should. We will continue to communicate with families regarding safety practices and updates to our procedures.
Join us on Friday, September 1, at Heise Park Stadium for Elementary Night! All PreK-5 students are encouraged to show their TIGER PRIDE and wear orange and blue. Students will get in FREE with a paying adult/guardian if wearing a wristband (distributed at school). There will be a pregame tailgate at 5:00 p.m. in the park. Free popcorn, temporary tattoos, and hair color will be provided. Join us on the track in front of the concession stand at 6:15 p.m. to follow the Galion Tiger Marching Band across the front of the grandstand. ** Primary students must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at all times.

Parents are crucial in preventing possible substance use in their children. Research shows that kids whose parents discuss drug and alcohol dangers with them are 50% less likely to face future issues.

This interactive program guides parents through a virtual bedroom, highlighting signs of risky behavior and mental health concerns. The event is for parents only.
