Student hunters invited to participate in friendly competition Deer

This hunting season, student hunters who attend Mathews Local Schools are invited to participate in friendly competition while enjoying time with their families outdoors.

The idea all started a couple of months ago when Mathews Local Schools’ School Resource Officer Steve Smith was approached by Fowler Police Chief Mike Currington with the idea of hosting a biggest deer competition for student hunters in the district. 

“Many of our students participate in school-related activities.  We thought this was a great opportunity for us to involve some of our students who participate in out-of-school activities.  We knew there were quite a few student hunters at Mathews.  So, we thought this contest would not only spur some friendly competition, but also give our students something to look forward to this fall and winter as we continue to deal with COVID-19,” said school resource officer Steve Smith.

Ohio Department of Health discontinues fluoride program Teeth

September 23, 2020 

Dear Parent or Guardian,

As you may know, our school has participated in a fluoride mouthrinse program, offered by the Ohio Department of Health (ODH), for a number of years. We've recently been notified by the ODH that this program will be discontinued at the end of the 2019-20 school year. The lone U.S. manufacturer will no longer be making the fluoride packets used for the program. 

If your child participated in this program, we encourage you to let your dentist know that they will not be rinsing with fluoride at school and discuss other sources of fluoride that might be beneficial, including fluoride varnish. 

Please click here to review some resources.

If you have any questions, please contact Shannon Cole, ODH School-based Oral Health Program Coordinator at: 614-728-2302 or via email at
