Dear Citizens,   August 13, 2018
I hope everyone had a great summer break, and it is hard to believe in two weeks, we will be starting the 2018-2019 school year! I want to wish all of our students, parents, community members, and Mississinawa Valley Staff members good luck with The Great Darke County Fair which will be starting this week. I look forward in watching our students compete at the fair.  Our dance/cheer team will be performing on Friday, August 17, 2018, and our band will perform on Monday, August 20th, 2018. 
A few reminders for the upcoming school year.  All parents/guardians must complete the on-line forms for each of their children which attend Mississinawa Valley.  You can access the forms by logging in on the website under the parent portal. If you need assistance logging in, please contact, or you can stop by the office.  If you need internet access, you can use the computers in the office.  You have until August 29, 2018 to complete the on-line forms.  
Open House will be held on Monday, August 27, 2018 from 6:00 p.m.-7:30 p.m., and the first day of school for students will be on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.  If you have moved or new to the district, please contact Mrs. Debbie Gower at if you need to update your address for bus routes.  We are in the process of installing a new secured entrance into the K-12 building between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.  You will have to be buzzed in by a secretary and you will enter directly into the office to sign in as a visitor.  This door should be operating in September. 
We hope all students, parents, community members, and staff have a great 2018-2019 school year, and if you ever have any questions/concerns, please feel free to contact me at 937-968-5656 or by email:

School Closings and Delays Mississinawa Valley has implemented the Instant Connect Voice Dial System which is a great asset for parents and staff. Parents and students are also encouraged to listen to the radio or TV stations for the latest school delays, early release or closing information. A decision to delay or close school is usually made by 6:15 a.m. Parents should make pre-arranged plans for unscheduled emergencies.
