Seniors: As you are making your post-graduation decisions – don’t forget to fill in your spot on the “I Decided” board! If you have received any scholarships, make sure you are listing them under the “scholarship” tab on your Naviance account. We will include this information in the graduation program.
AP Test Information
This has been a challenging year dealing with the pandemic and all it entails – thank you for your support and assistance navigating the myriad of challenges. As we close out the year, there may be events and activities which differ from the past due to restrictions and our efforts to make them as safe as possible. Again, thank you for your understanding.
Several key dates to remember:
The End-of-Year Senior Information Sheet contains accompanying information as well as procedures and expectations at different events. Click here for the End-of-Year Senior Information Sheet.
We are very proud of our seniors and look forward to sharing these important events with them in the upcoming month. Thank you for your continued support of Roger Bacon, and we sincerely appreciate your help and assistance navigating these exciting times prior to graduation.
The 33rd Annual Evening for Excellence is back and in-person! Updated guidelines from the State of Ohio allow us to have a LIVE EVENT while abiding by the necessary safety protocols. Masks will be worn except while dining and we will ask patrons to respect social distancing requirements.
In order to accommodate space needed for our guests, the Silent Auction will be held online. The online auction portion of this year’s Evening for Excellence is this week! Click here to view and bid on items. Bidding will begin on Wednesday, April 21st at 10:00 am and close at 4:00 pm on Saturday, April 24th. Happy bidding!

An important part of our safety plan is ensuring that students who are sick are not permitted to come to school. If you are sick, please stay home. Check the temperature of students before leaving home. Students with a temperature of 100.4 degrees of higher should stay at home.
Primary symptoms of COVID-19 are fever, cough, shortness of breath and/or loss of taste/smell. If you have multiple symptoms or symptoms persist, please consult your family health provider.
Immunization Requirement for Senior Year. Senior students, if you have not received your meningococcal vaccine yet, please make an appointment with your physician. These can also be given at Kroger’s or Walgreens’ clinics. Proof of this vaccine or an updated immunization record should be turned in to the nurse’s office by the end of September. Thank you! If you have any questions, please contact our school nurse, Karin Herold, via email or leave a voice message 513-641-1300, ext 1140.
