Military Family Support
Jennings Local Schools is proud to support all of our military families and veterans. The sacrifices made by the veterans of this great nation have afforded all of us the freedoms we enjoy today. We encourage all staff, students, and community members to initiate, create, and participate in activities designed to recognize the sacrifices and achievements of veterans and their families have made in the best interests of our nation.
Veterans Day celebrations, Honor Flight support, Fort Fest support, and Honoring the American Huey crews are only a few examples of how the staff and students at Jennings Local Schools have participated in in order to honor our veterans.
In addition to our local support, please see some of the supports offered by the state of Ohio by visiting the links below.
