Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation

posted May 4, 2017, 10:58 AM by Tim Pohlman   [ updated Aug 10, 2017, 8:58 PM ]

 

Dear Parents,

We wanted to make our community aware of an excellent opportunity that’s been made available to our students/athletes at Upper Sandusky High School. We are partnering with mCORE™ — Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation — to screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest.                  

SCA Is The #1 Killer of Young Athletes.

SCA is the result of unsuspecting cardiological disease or abnormalities which cause the heart to stop without warning or symptoms. We hear about several student-athletes each year that are lost to this devastating tragedy, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this. For more information on mCORE and SCA please see video link - https://vimeo.com/53605191/

Please see the Details on the Screening Date and Time Below:

Date: Tuesday, September  19, 2017

Time: 8:00am - 4:00 pm

Location: Volleyball Team Room

Cost: $75

The time requirement is approximately 10-12 minutes per athlete. Each athlete will be given an EKG and Echo screening and these tests typically cost more than $2000 in a clinical setting. (The screening age range is 12-22 years old). You may use your Healthcare Spending Account or Flex Care Spending Account. All screenings are performed by a Registered Diagnostic Cardiac Sonographer and results are read by the mCORE Medical Director Dr. Kenneth Berkovitz, MD. Board Certified in Cardiovascular Disease, Interventional Cardiology, and Internal Medicine.                                                                                                         (Please contact mCORE should financial hardship preclude you from taking part)   

ATHLETES MUST PRE-REGISTER ONLINE FOR THE SCREENING BY

USEVS Joins SaferOH!

posted Nov 6, 2015, 6:09 AM by Jim Frye

Upper Sandusky Schools has joined 844-SaferOH, Ohio's new school safety tip line! SaferOH enables students, parents, teachers and school administrators to anonymously report student safety threats to school officers and law enforcement officers. These threats may include a potential incident of mass violence, a suicide threat or a student who is being bullied.

Trained professionals at Ohio Homeland Security's Threat Assessment and Prevention unit answer all calls and texts to 844-SaferOH. TAP staff immediately forward information to Upper Sandusky Schools as well as local law enforcement and others. The TAP staff then follows up quickly with school and law enforcement agencies to ensure the incident is investigated and the outcome tracked.

The tip line is available 24 hours a day. The call center guarantees that the person who calls or texts will remain anonymous. Tip line workers may seek additional information, but the person who calls or texts may remain anonymous or leave contact information in case if the tip line workers need to follow up.

"The safety of our boys and girls remains the top priority of our schools," Ohio Superintendent of Public Information Richard A. Ross stated in a press release. "The SaferOH tip line provides another resource for schools and school districts in their continuing efforts to provide a safe and secure educational environment."
Research shows that in 81 percent of violent incidents in U.S. schools, someone other than the attacker knew something was occurring or going to occur but failed to report it. Typically, according to the Ohio Department of Education, that's because the person who knew something feared they would become a target of the attacker or bully or be labeled a "snitch."

Joining SaferSchools Ohio is another example of how Upper Sandusky Schools are working towards collaboratively establish a safe, respectful and caring environment that promotes student learning.


District BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Information!

posted Oct 5, 2014, 7:24 AM by Jim Frye

Students in grades 6-12 can participate in our district "BYOD" (Bring Your Own Device) program, meaning they are permitted to bring to school technology devices they personally own, i.e. iPod Touch, iPad, Android tablet, Nook, Kindle, laptop. There is a form that must be signed off  on first and this form is available in the main office of the MS and/or HS office (also attached below). Students are 100% responsible for their device and the district is exempt for any damage or theft that may occur while on school grounds. Below is our BYOD Policy & FAQ document to help answer any questions.


Report Cards Available in Parent Portal!

posted Nov 1, 2013, 2:17 PM by Jim Frye   [ updated Nov 17, 2016, 5:35 AM by Tim Pohlman ]

ATTN: ALL PARENTS/GUARDIANS

A new feature has been added to our Parent Portal, Online Report Cards! When parents log into Parent Portal, in the left column of choices, you'll now see "Report Cards" (see attachment). If you click on "Report Cards" you'll be able to the same information that you would see on a printed report card.

The long term plan for the district to stop printing grade cards with them now available via Parent Portal, except for anyone who would request we print for those with no computer, and/or internet access. This will be a money saving measure for the district, i.e. not using paper, toner, envelopes, and stamps. No date has been set when this might take place, but know this discussion has started.

If you have not yet established your Parent Portal account, you can contact your child's building secretary or email Mr. Frye at jim_f@usevs.org. He can provide you, via email, with a Parent Portal Information Letter, which provides you with the steps to create your Parent Portal account. Remember there are also mobile apps for Parent Portal for iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. Search the iTunes App Store or Google Play store for PowerSchool for Parents.

We hope you like this new feature and use it as needed!
