mCORE will be at SV on January 23rd from 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. to provide preventative heart screenings for athletes. These screenings can help save lives. This is an excellent opportunity for SV athletes, and SV students will receive the screenings for only $40. SV, in partnership with mCORE™(Mobile Cardiac Overview and Risk Evaluation), will screen our athletes for the cardiac conditions and abnormalities which may put them at risk of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA).  

SCA is the #1 Killer of Student Athletes Each Year, many of which could have been prevented with a simple examination like this. 

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 BUT special pricing at SV will be $40! 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 mCORE Medical Director and our pediatric cardiology team.

Sandy Valley Receives Purple Star School District Designation

posted Jan 2, 2019, 5:34 PM by Allison Morris   [ updated Jan 2, 2019, 5:46 PM ]

Sandy Valley Local Schools received the Purple Star designation for their commitment to serving military-connected students and their families. Sandy Valley was one of three Application Exemplars.

Superintendent Mr. Fischer is ecstatic with the news. “Sandy Valley prides itself on being supportive of military families, active military and veterans. Starting in elementary school, students participate in Memorial Day activities and the district-wide annual veterans day assembly. Sandy Valley will continue to be a welcoming environment for military families, veterans and students enlisting,” said Mr. Fischer.

A few examples that demonstrate Sandy Valley’s commitment to creating a military-friendly school include an annual Veterans Day assembly, producing an annual Veterans appreciation video, recognizing recently enlisted high school seniors,  showcasing military at school events such as home football and basketball games, and created a website on sandyvalleylocal.org which highlights important resources for veterans and military families.

The annual Veterans Day assembly was created by Mrs. Kaye Pomesky, retired SV elementary principal. Mrs. Pomesky continues to orchestrate this tradition today, and she, along with Mrs. Sarah Leyda, Assistant to the Superintendent, keep the important event running smoothly year to year.

The Purple Star designation for military-friendly schools recognizes schools that show a major commitment to serving students and families connected to our nation’s armed forces. The Purple Star Advisory Board, formed by the Ohio departments of Education, Higher Education, Veterans Services and Adjutant General, helps decide eligibility. The Purple Star emblem was selected because purple symbolizes support for military families.

There are 34,000 children in Ohio with one or more parents serving in the military. This includes the children of active duty, reserve and Ohio National Guard members. Some of these children will attend six to nine different schools throughout their K-12 educational experiences. In addition to changing schools often, a student can be affected by a parent’s deployment. Schools can help students and families face these issues by connecting them with the resources they need.
