Superintendent's Message

This school year is moving along rapidly as we move into the fall/winter seasons.  Elgin students have gotten off to a great start this year.  Many thanks to our students, parents, staff and community for the fine start to begin a new year.


Please visit the Elgin website at for information about upcoming events

and activities.  We want parents and community residents to take advantage of the many opportunities to visit the Elgin campus.


Last winter was a harsh one for central Ohio and the Marion area.  Weather forecasts are predicting another cold, snowy winter.  Therefore, we can anticipate ice-covered and snowy road conditions.  We ask that student drivers, parents and staff observe caution when driving.  It is important for everyone to slow down and drive carefully this winter season.  Student drivers may ride school buses if they feel uncomfortable about road conditions.


Students and parents will be notified about delays and cancellations through our automated calling system.  Radio and television stations will also announce delays and cancellations.  At Elgin Local, we are concerned about the safety of all students and there is much deliberation when making decisions to cancel or delay school.  We ask that everyone cooperate with the school when these decisions are made. 


Thanks to everyone in the Elgin Local School District for the cooperation and continued support.  Elgin has a wonderful community and our students are awesome!
