Salvation Army Backpack Program



Vermilion Salvation Army, in partnership with Second Harvest Food Bank of North Central Ohio, will be starting a food backpack program for families whose children attend Sailorway Middle School. This program will begin in September 2021.  All children qualifying for free or reduced lunch programs are eligible. Each participant will receive a bag of food packaged for use over the weekends and usually distributed on Fridays. These will be “kid-friendly” foods that require little or no adult supervision to prepare. To participate, please complete the forms below and return it to Ms. Wheeler, School Counselor

Should you have any questions concerning this program, please call Ms. Wheeler at 440-204-1702, ext. 504 or contact Sandi Manges from the Salvation Army at 440-967-5446.

Special Message from Mrs. Bartlome

Special Message from the Principal
I would like to let you know of a major change for our sixth and seventh grade students.  Sailorway students will not be taking their laptops home this year.  As you begin to see events and dates posted by the school district, you will not see the laptop roll-out for SMS sixth and seventh grade students.  
This decision has been made with the students' best interest in mind.  The teachers will only assign homework that can be done without technology.  Students will be given time during the school day to earn their minutes for programs like ALEKS and Lexia.  The computers will be stored in carts and fully charged for the students to begin each day.
