(New Philadelphia, Ohio) – Buckeye Career Center is offering a special in-person visit day for Newcomerstown sophomores, while also planning a make-up day for students who missed last week’s visit or had their school’s visit postponed due to weather.
Any Newcomerstown sophomore, who is interested in enrolling at the career center next school year, is invited to attend on Thursday, February 18th. With many schools limiting field trips due to COVID-19, BCC is offering this special day because Newcomerstown students are off that day due to a staff professional development day. Students will be required to provide their own transportation and pre-register with Buckeye Career Center to attend. The Newcomerstown visit will be held from 8:15am-11:45am. Parents can register their students by contacting Shyanne Carroll at 330.339.2288 ext. 1241 or firstname.lastname@example.org. They can also contact Julie Beaber at 330.339.2288 ext. 1221 or email@example.com. An online registration tool is available at https://forms.gle/zWPcrwHM7ZxuWhp79. Again, all Newcomerstown students planning to attend on February 18th must pre-register for the event.
Additionally, Buckeye Career Center will host New Philadelphia and Conotton Valley sophomores on Wednesday, February 24, 2021. Any sophomore student from these districts who has not already signed up for this visit should contact his or her guidance counselor immediately to pre-register. This date will also be used as a make-up date for any area sophomores who might have missed their school’s class trip during the week of February 1-5, 2021. BCC will accept the first 50 students who register for the make-up date, to ensure proper social distancing and COVID-19 safety practices. These students are still expected to pre-register and that can be done through their high school guidance counselor or by contacting BCC directly. This visit date is also open to home-schooled students, digital academy students, and students from neighboring districts and will run from 9am-12:45pm.
Masks will be required for all participants and staff members and the six feet social distancing guidelines will be observed at all times. The number of students allowed into each lab for each session will be limited. All labs, touchable surfaces, and tools will be sanitized after every use.
The visits are intended for students who are interested in learning more about the career center’s over 30 high school career-technical programs. The event allows students to pick five labs to visit, each featuring hands-on activities and information presented by program instructors.
